Database Maintenance

BACKGROUND

Paragliders Malaysia was founded in 2014 as part of a development roadmap to build a healthy growth of paragliding sport in Malaysia. It is a not-for-profit social enterprise, where the business model is to become self sustainable for continuously giving back to the community.

Through this website, the public can get further information about paragliding activities in Malaysia and through our integrated Tandem Flight Boooking System, it will effectively connect the public and local tandem pilots to manage their recreational tandem flights.

For further enquiries, you may send them to yusmar@paragliders.my or use our Contact Us online form.
