Congratulations on your decision to become a certified paraglider pilot. The program you are embarking on is designed to give you the best results but is a thorough and intensive course for which the outcome is to turn you into a safe, confident and competent pilot.
During this program you will learn about glider aerodynamics, meteorology, thermal flying, ridge soaring, flight manoeuvres and emergency procedures. The course starts at our local training fields and progresses to our training hill in D’Urberville Hills where the mild weather conditions and forgiving slopes provide gentle low take offs and easy landings for your first solo flights. Here we focus on building your launching, landing and flight techniques through intensive ground handling and repetitious flights, before progressing to higher launch sites.
The course length is variable, the average student taking 9 days to complete the logged skill requirements and Basic Licence written exam, but our objective is to give you that extra input and we therefore include 3 extra days to help you build your confidence and ensure you get some advanced flying tips that will see you safely integrated into the wonderful world of paragliding.
If you require more than 15 days, or 6 weeks from your initial lessons to complete your Basic License course, additional fees will be required.
