Hi Jean Luc,
Thanks so much for the training
you gave me last week. It was
absolutely brilliant. You are the
4th trainer I have had – 2 of the
other trainers I had were
fantastic, but you really were the
best. Thank you.
You were able to illustrate the
points in the theory with practical
stories from your own experience.
These stories were highly
entertaining and educational. But
you never crapped on about how
good your were. This is a very fine
I had a really good time and
learnt heaps. I have attached the
training records from Nepal and
with Antony at Stanwell Park. Once I have my licence I would
like to buy the Vista, Spark and
a reserve. Thanks again. Please
let me know if you need any
Best Regards John Norman

Paragliding and Tandem Flying
Paragliding is the recreational and competitive adventure sport of freeflying.
A Paraglider is a lightweight, free-flying, foot-launched glider aircraft with no rigid primary structure. The pilot sits in a harness suspended below a hollow fabric wing whose shape is formed by its suspension lines, the pressure of air entering vents in the front of the wing and the aerodynamic forces of the air flowing over the outside.
Despite not using an engine, paraglider flights can last many hours and cover many hundreds of kilometres, though flights of 1-2 hours and covering some tens of kilometres are more the norm.
By skilful exploitation of sources of lift the pilot may gain height, often climbing to altitudes of a few thousand metres.
Paragliders are unique among soaring aircraft in being easily portable. The complete equipment packs into a rucksack and can be carried easily on the pilot's back, in a car, or on public transport. In comparison with other air sports this substantially simplifies travel to a suitable takeoff spot, the selection of a landing place and return travel.
Rainbow Beach is one of the 10 best coastal sites in the world.
It is famous for its safe launch and landing, its smooth and laminair air, spectacular view of the colour sands and pristine clear sea.
Rainbow Beach is the perfect site for your first adventure of flying.

I reckon that no matter what the vocation or sport, you can't beat knowledge, skill and experience. Jean Luc at Rainbow Paragliding has these attributes in spades. Jean Luc is one of the pioneers of paragliding in Australia and he is also an expert instructor. I found his high regard for safety, comforting and his deep knowledge of weather conditions, reassuring. Paragliding can be a dangerous sport but Jean Luc is good at teaching people how to know their limits and to practice skills that take much of the danger away. What's more he's a great bloke and a lot of fun to spend time with. I would recommend Jean Luc to anyone who wants to enjoy the thrills of paragliding in the safest possible manner - he knows his stuff!

I flew with Jean Luc several times. He is a certified chief flying instructor and operates Paragliding Rainbow. His impressive 100% safety record for 1,900 Tandem flights speaks for itself.
Flying Tandem with Jean Luc in Tahiti for 3 weeks gave me an awsome paragliding experience. Cliff Perrin
I have been flying most of my life from the Tiger Moth with my dad at age six to gliding and instructing in gliders to owning and flying my own light aircraft. My decision to try paragliding late in life was something I was a bit hesitant in doing but I was lucky to choose Rainbow Paragliding.
Jean Luc understands my desire to succeed and my slower learning curve as the big 60 is just round the corner.
His safety first approach is something that I have always done with my flying and this has given me much confidence in his instruction.
I am nearly at the end of the Supervised Course and am looking forward to my Paragliding fun in the future.
Sorry for the rant but quality training needs to be recognised.
