About Us

My name is Jesse Meyer and I've been flying  paragliders   over  10 years and teaching for three. Flying and helping others to learn has become my passion. I learned to fly from the best instructors in the US and want to pass their and my knowledge to my students and fellow pilots. I’m a member of USHPA, Wings of Rogallo, and BAPA . I've flown the mountains of Alaska, to the ridges in the SF Bay Area, to the long high flights in Mexico, to the picturesque landscapes of Hawaii. I’m an Advanced Instructor, Tandem Instructor, Advanced Rated pilot, and Safety coordinator for BAPA.   With my love of flight, coaching, and teaching others to fly we offer a smooth learning atmosphere to gain the knowledge to become a life-long safe pilot. With a big smile and always laughing I’m blessed to have the privilege of sharing this amazing sport with people who dream to fly.

Lift Paragliding provides instruction and tandem flights seven days a week from sunup to sundown.  We let you train at your own pace and schedule.  Lift students pick their rate of progression, and we are there to keep you in check if you get ahead of yourself.    Lesson’s last all day or until the weather won’t allow. We value your time and money spent and strive to make the most out of the each lesson flying, kiting, ground school, or debriefing the day’s lesson.  We pride ourselves on being there long after you’ve received your Novice Paragliding Rating. All Lift students are welcome and encouraged to join in on local flying trips, Lift paragliding tours, monuver clinics, or just another day at the training hill. All our students are treated with respect, never belittled, and never yelled at. Lift strives to make each lesson fun, informative and safe.


"Jesse is the perfect instructor!  I went on a tandem ride with him last week (September 2012) and loved every second.  Before arriving I was nervous but meeting him my fears were gone.  He knows what he's doing, he's calm and can handle anything.  I highly recommend Jesse, he's the best.  Paragliding is amazing! If your researching it, stop researching and just sign up.  You won't regret it.  Beyond amazing. Lift Paragliding is the way to go."
