Darek dreamed of flying from an early age. Growing up he longed to get up into the sky and felt like he was missing out anytime he heard about people who flew recreationally. Finally, Darek pursued his passion and he's been hooked ever since.
Beginner turned pro, Darek is the instructor you've been looking for to move you towards your passion. Since 1996 when he first got into the air, he has travelled all over the world, hitting nearly every continent and flying in the coolest and most exhilarating destinations. Ask him about his favourite trips and he'll share some great stories.
He is a HPAC Certified Paragliding Instructor and Transport Canada Certified Ultralight Instructor. Cross-Country (XC) flying is his absolute favourite thing. Darek is also Industry Canada ROC-A (Restricted Operator - Aeronautical) examiner.
Darek Magusiak is a five star flight instructor. Throughout my training, he remained punctual, patient, and professional. I started training entirely with his gear and then transitioned to my own equipment, which he helped me select and purchase. Darek not only taught me to fly, but also how to repair and maintain my equipment. Flight training with Darek was an incredibly enjoyable experience and I highly recommend it. I am now a confident pilot, and I know that if I have any questions, Darek will be happy to help me succeed.
Darek is a proud husband and father of two beautiful young girls. He has been working in marketing and web development, as well as honing his coding skills at one of the fastest growing sports registration platforms called Race Roster.
