Our Instructors

Kay Tauscher, Paragliding InstructorKay Tauscher, founder, owner and operator of Peak to Peak Paragliding for over 14 years, has been flying since August of 2000. 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 instruct or, an APPI basic instructor, a Commercial Tandem Pilot/Instructor, and a NOVA Paragliding Team Pilot.  She has instructed over 1000 students and trained some 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.

Mauricio Fleitas is the newest member of the Peak to Peak Paragliding team but is quickly becoming a favorite because of his easy-going, friendly disposition. He is an USHPA-certified Instructor and is the Flight Coordinator for Peak to Peak PG’s tandem operations in Boulder, Colorado. His attention to detail is apparent right from the start when you meet him. He has flown commercial tandems (over 6000 of them) for 5 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”) is a full-time instructor with Peak to Peak Paragliding and is PASA certified. He just recently married and became a US citizen. We are grateful to have him on our staff.

Lawrence Wallman has been teaching flying of one kind or another for over 20 years. He is a former commercial pilot and flight instructor, an USHPA advanced Instructor and Tandem Pilot. Lawrence began paragliding in 1993 and hang gliding in 1999. He is a gentle personality with a keen wit and eye for detail. He became an USHPA certified instructor in 2003 and attended the course alongside Kay Tauscher. Although a resident of Seattle for most of the year, we plan to have him full time in Boulder by Spring 2018.  He is a kiting/ground handling master, and an expert on paragliding theory.
