What pilots say:
"The chatroom is brilliant, with direct access to Greg's experience" -- Darren Goodlad
"The butterfly landing guide was especially great." -- Malan Joubert
From the preparation of the flight to the landing, Greg's advice allows you to progress in paragliding safely.
As a beginner, the instructional videos really helped me develop my flying skills!"
Fly with Greg is a great resource for progressing as a pilot. His explanations of techniques such as the swoop flare and the slope landing are things I am still practising, and his analysis of flights and terrain on take-offs and landings has also helped me to identify hazards and obstacles both at home and when visiting new places.
Fly With Greg has helped me, because there are many practical excercises that I can apply in my flying site to fly more safely. It is also a great tool to technical knowledge and also books and sites to adquire this knowledge.
After searching all over the internet for relevant paragliding information from an instructor with real world experience, I came across Greg Hamerton of Flywithgreg.com. There is no other site with such well made and well edited videos, with such important content that has helped me in my progression as a pilot, his videos are on important topics and have helped me significantly to improve my piloting skills. There are videos that help from the beginner who is just starting to fly, to the professional who requires more advanced information. I love your videos!
Before learning with Fly with Greg, I had no confidence in many aspects of paragliding: I couldn't see how to progress. Today, thanks to the excellent videos, detailed explanations and sensible structure of the course, I have all the tools I need to practice, feel more confident and fly better!
Professional and entertaining videos, as well as live sessions and a great community in the chat room. More is not possible - keep it up.
I am an absolute fan of the short "explanatory videos", which are super to the point and clearly explained. You can watch them again and again on long winter evenings and then practice until the flying season starts again! Greg's explanations are easy to understand even with little knowledge of English and motivate me to keep working on my ground handling and active flying skills!
For me, Fly with Greg is a huge source of inspiration, tips and tricks and knowledge brought together in videos, made with passion. As a pilot with far more than 10 years of flying, I still find many topics useful, like how to improve my groundhandling, flying and tactical decisions.
I've finally managed to get my wing into my ultralight bag now and I love the way you explain things step-by-step.
Your videos really help me feel better prepared and help me get my mindset right for flying, plus make more informed buying decisions.
Thank you for your excellent instructional videos. They have improved my flying so much. I love your knowledge, passion and kindness.
I’m a big fan of your adventure and competitions videos. I watch your lessons over and over again. Absolutely great work, helped me a lot!
Thanks for the brilliant content Greg. I’ve learnt a lot about safety, weather, thermalling & XC planning.
