No Dream is too big

You can fly. That in itself is pretty insane.

Don’t let numbers take that away.

Do improve the aspects of your flying that will bring maximum reward – from head to hands to heart.

Grant was fantastic and made the experience super enjoyable. We had friends in our group that were super scared of paragliding and he made sure to make them feel assured and relaxed. Grant is the best instructor!

Tandem flying with Barry and Grant is an excellent experience as they are very profesional, knowledgable and highly skilled. I am very grateful that I did my pilots license through Birdmen Paragliding and will highly recommend them to anybody.

Whatever your goals, you’re in the right place. GotFly exists to provide high-quality paragliding training. From aspiring pilot to XC hound, there’s something here for you.

I’m lucky enough to be a professional paragliding pilot, and while I will never profess to know it all (spoiler alert – we never can) I hope I can impart some of the knowledge that has brought such immense fulfilment and growth to my life.

GotFly Focus Areas

Weather Knowledge

Understanding the sky around us is critical. Not only to make safe decisions but to choose the right sites on the right days.

Glider Skills

We must become one with our wings, on the ground and in the air. Natural input without thought is the only way to become a bird.

Inner Game

Paragliding is one of life’s great teachers. A good pilot needs to learn to cope with limiting beliefs and, of course, fear. 

Meet Grant

Howzit everyone! Grant here.

I’m a paragliding instructor, tandem pilot and XC guide from Cape Town, South Africa. In 2018, I quit my job in Nature conservation to work in paragliding fulltime and haven’t looked back.

I’m passionate about helping pilots to reach their flying goals – even if it’s just to be safe and have more fun!

In partnership with Jedi Master-Instructor Barry Pedersen of Birdmen Paragliding, we developed the Birdmen Academy – a collection of coaching programmes aimed at guiding pilots through various levels of their paragliding progression.

Through this coaching and instructing I’ve come to recognise sticking points that pilots commonly face.

My aim with this website is to provide the resources needed plug those gaps.
