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.
