We are here to change that.

The Team

My name is Ria Moothilal - I am a paragliding instructor and owner of Air School Paragliding. By complete random chance, I did a tandem skydive 16 years ago, this completely altered the course of my life.

I love the outdoors, have a BSc degree in Agricultural Engineering, am a former data scientist and have also cycled from Cape Town to Cairo.
