P-2 Full Certification Program

The P-2 Full Certification Program is taught at the Point of the Mountain in Draper, Utah by Ken Hudonjorgensen.  The Point is recognized as the top paragliding training site in the United States. Earning a P-2 certification permits qualified pilots to fly without an instructor present at beginner paragliding sites. According to the United States Hang Gliding and Paragliding Association (USHPA), the prerequisites for becoming certified as a P-2 pilot are:

  • 25 flights
  • 5 lessons
  • Miscellaneous others …

At Two-Can Fly Paragliding, we believe that you simply need more time, practice, and experience than the USHPA recommends to make you a more proficient pilot, to keep you safe, and to instill greater personal confidence. Therefore, our P-2 Full Certification Program includes the following:

  • Over 100 flights, so that you progress all the way through your most difficult first 100 flights while still under our care and instruction.
  • As many lessons as are needed, in order for you to meet task proficiency goals and educational objectives.
  • In-depth study, instruction, and practice of paraglider kiting techniques that are critical for paragliding efficiency and safety, and involves skillfully flying your paraglider in varying wind conditions over your head while you’re standing firmly on the ground.
  • Loads of very beneficial ground school lessons extensively covering topics relating to weather patterns and cloud-type recognition, pre-flight check lists, aerodynamic features and air characteristics, air space rules and etiquette, maneuvers descriptions, flying hazards and emergency procedures, reserve chute deployment, and preferred attitude and state of mind analysis.
  • The lesson packages offered by most paraglider training organizations in Utah and throughout the US ultimately result in an average charge of between $40 and $100 per flight, per course price. Whereas with Two-Can Fly Paragliding, you’ll be paying an average of only $15 per flight, and you will receive unlimited personal attention and consultation. Plus, you will be allowed to borrow DVD’s, books, and all other pertinent study materials needed to reinforce your paragliding learning expertise (a savings of more than $500).
  • We will assist you in choosing the best equipment for your skill level and long-term goals, and will devote time during the latter part of your lessons in helping you get used to your new equipment. This ensures that you are already comfortable and dialed into your new equipment, and can therefore safely make the transition from instructor-guided flying to solo flying.
  • After you receive your P-2 Certification rating and are done with the course, if you continue to keep improving on your skills and striving to satisfy flight and airtime prerequisites to become eligible for P-3 and P-4 certification, we will include the cost for your intermediate and advanced ratings certifications in this P-2 Full Certification Program (a savings of nearly $400)

Once you’ve obtained you P-2 Certification, Ken also offers thermal clinics, mountain flying clinics, cross-country flying clinics, out of state and out of country adventure flying tours, and much, much, more …

After completing my training with Two-Can Fly Paragliding and I started flying with other new pilots trained by other schools, I came to realize how truly lucky I was to have had Ken Hodonjorgenson as my paragliding instructor. Ken did not try to rush me through my training, but rather he insisted that I mastered the skills needed to ensure my safety, build my confidence, and ultimately maximize my enjoyment of the sport.

Getting my P-2 training from Ken has been a great experience, better than I could have ever hoped for. Ken’s nearly boundless amount of experience, coupled with an unwavering commitment to safety, sets up a classroom foundation with great potential. Ken adds to that with his caring and thoughtful people skills, his vast experience in teaching, and his complete commitment to your safety, success, and long-term enjoyment of the sport. Through Ken, my focus and efforts were rewarded with steady progress faster and better than I could have thought possible. Thanks Ken.

I have known Ken for the past 8 years and even though I don’t take lessons any more, I still consider myself his student. From the beginning of my instruction, Ken always had a calming presence that facilitates learning. I remember the first time I got dragged by my wing. As I gathered myself, I was fully expecting to get chewed out for allowing that to happen. Instead, Ken calmly approached and said, “Ok, so what did you learn there?” And he is always the Zen Master. His attitude toward flying has been contagious and has kept me safe while having a good time as I have progressed through the sport. Ken is always there for advice or just a casual chat while “para-waiting”. Getting to know both Ken and Janet has been a true pleasure.

A paragliding instructor is easy to find, paragliding mentors don’t come along often. There are few who can teach you to feel and “see” the power of the air around you, Ken is that man. Not only does he provide benchmark instruction, but leads you on a spiritual path to truly becoming a three-dimensional being, a state that few on this earth experience. You can put my enthusiastic stamp on it!

Ken has so much to give and shares all of his experiences without conditions, freely and compassionately.
