Introduction to Paragliding 2 day course
We will start the course by doing a tandem flight and an introduction to paragliding equipment to understand the different gear we use when paragliding. After seeing and familiarizing yourself with the gear you will be given a paraglider to use for the first practical lesson which will be an introduction to ground training the paraglider, this will prepare you on how to control the paraglider for your first flight. If conditions and weather are good you will do your first flight on your own as the pilot in command on the second day.
On the second day of the course, you will do paraglide flights on your own while being instructed on how to fly and land with two-way radio instruction. You will spend most of the day flying the paraglider on your own.
