We start out all new paragliding students at Rayong, Thailand. Our training hill is one of the best in the nation with gentle unobstructed slopes, and a road to the top. The hill provides consistent conditions for teaching our students the skills, and insights needed to become a paraglider pilot. will appreciate the concern for safety and the focus on developing paragliding fundamentals that will help provide you with a more secure future in the sport. Enjoy kiting the glider at the top of our hill with a view of the South of Thailand. Bring the family and the dog out to watch the action anytime. If the gates are open, drive up the dirt road and park in the lot on the right, or follow the road around to the left to the top of the hill.
Weekends are the best bet to guarantee some action at the hill. Spending some time watching Eagle Paragliding's instructors work with the students will give you an idea of how things work. Take a look at the map below for directions. Visiting pilots need to check in with the monitor, read over the rules, and sign park waivers before flying. We hope to see you there.
