Paragliding film takes off

Soar over to G.W. Graham theatre on Thursday for the final 2015 film series instalment, Frequent Flyers.

Soar over to G.W. Graham theatre on Thursday Dec. 10 for the 'Frequent Flyers' paragliding instalment of the Mt. Waddington's Outdoors film series.

It’s the last instalment of the Mt. Waddington’s Outdoors film series for 2015.

Head over to the G.W. Graham theatre on Dec. 10 to see the incredible Frequent Flyers project.

Several short films throughout the evening will astound the audience with the magnificence of paragliding.

Witness backpackers travel the world with a wing and a harness. Follow paragliders as they link flights back to back on a grand adventure.

Take a peek into the daredevil world of aero-acrobatics, and learn how a paraglider can be used to elevate your skiing experience.

Finally, take a flight with our local athlete Kevin Ault as he presents the history of paragliding right here in the Fraser Valley.

Paragliding since 1989, Ault was one of the first dozen in B.C. to take up the sport.

He’ll present his short film and talk to the audience about what has changed in the local flying community in terms of equipment, education and more.

“If you’ve ever dreamed of flying, paragliding makes that dream come true,” he said.

Doors open at G.W. Graham theatre at 6:30 p.m. The show starts at 7 p.m.

Tickets are $12 in advance at Mt. Waddington’s Outdoors, or $15 at the door.
