Intro to Thermals and XC w/ Kari Castle

An introduction to thermal and cross-country flying with the world famous Kari Castle! At Fly Above All we love Kari for her amazing personality and fun teaching style but she's also one of the worlds top pilots. With fourteen U.S. National Championships and three World Championships plus a Canadian Championship she's a legend, and that doesn't even begin to scratch the surface! She's also the most decorated woman in Hang Gliding, and in 2005 took on one of the most grueling paragliding races ever, the Red Bull X-Alps. We have done several of these clinics with Kari around the U.S. and they always end up being the "Funnest and funniest week EVER!"
