Several years in the making, the new Mini-Wing program has finally taken flight!
Mini-Wings are considered a special skill under the Paragliding program, available to pilots holding at least a P2 rating. A list of Mini-Wing Instructors can be found on the website: List of Mini-Wing Instructors

KEEN Footwear and the Cloudbase Foundation are teaming up to Repurpose for a Purpose. Used (and no longer flight-worthy) paragliders and reserves will be sewn to make bags. These bags will be sold at KEENFest with all monies collected going directly to the Cloudbase Foundation's projects.
If you have an air-worthy glider that could be used to train beginners, the Cloudbase Foundation also has a donation program for that. Contact them directly: Cloudbase Foundation Donations. All donations (whether for recycling or training) are potentially tax-deductible.>
Your Women's Hang Gliding Team - Linda Salamone and Jamie Shelden - are asking for your support. They are raising money to go to the World Championship in France. You can either donate when doing your membership renewal, or buy a sweet t-shirt (available in both men's and women's styles!).
Find out more about how to get your own sweet t-shirt or make a direct donation.
Please help keep the US Women's Team viable, this year and in the years to come. Support the 2014 US Women's Hang Gliding Team!
