Heli-Paragliding @ Atlin Music Festival
July 6, 2018 - July 8, 2018Free
Heli-Paragliding in Atlin
Jamie has again offered to give pilots a ride up one of the local mountains so long as it is coordinated around his volunteering for the Atlin Music Festival. Helicopter can take 5 pilots (and wings). The time to meet will be set closer to the festival or call or visit Jamie at the hanger. A couple of tandem flights may be available. Please RSVP below as space is limited. We need six pilots to make this possible and to keep costs down.
Cell phones do NOT work in Atlin, but you can reach Jamie or myself via Airband.
Air-band 123.2 (uncontrolled frequency)
Cost is $75 for a single lift (based on 5 pilots). If there is demand, we can make a second run for the Sunday.
Please reserve at the Fly Yukon EventBrite Page if you’re coming.
