Our Instructors

After finding paragliding at the age of 40, she quit her environmental consulting career of 17 years to pursue the job of her dreams.  She now is an Advanced USHPA instructor having taught many hundreds of people, an APPI basic instructor, a Commercial Tandem Pilot/Instructor, and a NOVA Paragliding Team Pilot.  She has instructed most of the finest pilots in the region.  She has flown and guided all over the world including Nepal, Mexico, Germany, Austria, Italy, Slovenia, Ecuador, Alaska, & Hawaii. She is known to have an impeccable safety record and is well known for her conservative, detail-oriented approach to technique and flying. She is direct, forthright and tries to keep the lessons fun-filled. She focuses on the individual learning style of each of her students and goes at whatever pace seems to work best for them. And mostly she is a patient instructor helping her students evolve to meet their potential.

 

Mauricio Fleitas joined the Peak to Peak Paragliding team in 2017 but is quickly becoming a crowd favorite because of his easy-going, friendly disposition. He is an USHPA-certified Basic Instructor and is the Flight Coordinator for Peak to Peak PG’s tandem operations and Coordinator of the flight school in Boulder, Colorado. His attention to detail is apparent right from the start when you meet him. Mauricio  has flown commercial tandems (over 6000 of them) all over the world for years and started flying in 2009.

Originally a professional surfer from Venezuela, he guides and has flown around the world, including Indonesia, Nepal, South America, Mexico and India, just to name a few. He is a professional photographer and videographer, and is always capturing the fun whether in the air on on the ground. Many of his videos and photos can be seen on Peak to Peak Paragliding’s Facebook page. “Mauri” (a nick-name given to him in Nepal, which means “little bee”). We are grateful to have him on our staff.

Johannes spent several years hanging out and flying the well known paragliding site in Manilla Australia.  In 2018 he placed 2nd in the B category at the Monarca open in Valle de Bravo, Mexico.  If it is flyable in Boulder you will find Johannes in the air flying solo or tandem daily. Johannes is a natural born paraglider.
