The Paragliding Day Course:

This course is a great way to see what paragliding is all about. You will learn to fly solo. Your instructor will teach you how to fly in a safe environment and give you the skill to do it yourself.

What to expect: In the morning you will learn about your paragliding equipment, how to clip in to the glider and to inflating and run with the glider. This is called ground training.  You will ground train on gentle slopes close to the ground in the morning and you will start to get weightless steps in as your technique get better. In the afternoon you can look forward to solo flights from our training hill. This is where you will start to fly and feel what it is like to be a bird. It’s one of the most amazing feelings.  

Your instructors will guide you through every stage. We will progress you at your own pace. This course will enable you to discover paragliding in a fun environment with highly skilled instructors with many years experience.

You may even want to continue onto doing your PG1 or full pilot license course. All days and flight will go towards your PG2 course.
