If you would like to learn to fly solo, our instructors are ready to pass on their knowledge and experience to you. Sign up for TRAINING FOR BEGINNER PARAGLIDERS.
Every training is individual and fully depends on your coordination and receptivity. The main process is for you to get to know the flight equipment, to learn to read the weather conditions and the paraglider aerodynamics, and to learn the safe flying techniques.
The training starts with theory and ground wing lifting. At first you need to learn to lift the wing, control (retention in the air) and how to make a turn. Next is getting to know what to do if the wing collapses and how to use the backup parachute.
The training includes tandem flight with an instructor, as you will operate the paraglider alone when taking off and landing, where he will only guide you. The training in the air is with a duration from 30 to 60 minutes.
At the discretion of your instructor, you may have your first solo flight from 2 up to 20 meters heigh. Next is a number of flights from the training hill where you will learn the necessary skills to take off, operating the paraglider in the air and landing at a point, under the control of an instructor with a radio. You will be trained to slope rearing, thermally flying and techniques for a fast loss of height.
Training days can be flexible, depending on your free time. The courses start in March and are over in the end of November.
