Ryan Kerchen Speedfly Pilot.jpg


I am passionate about traveling and flying.  I am a skydiver, paraglider, speed flyer/rider, skier, and outdoor lover.  I have been inspired by many people in my life which has led me to travel as much as possible. I always loved it when my paragliding instructor said "let's see where a wing will take you".  Wow, that saying could not have been more true.  I believe in the power of flight to awaken our true self.  I strive to offer an experience that renews your spirit and ignites your passion for adventure.   I aspire to build this community into stronger, safer, and more confident pilots.
