Paragliding courses

We have had some fantastic paragliding this season with students logging a lot of flights and fun and as always high quality tandem paragliding flights. Paragliding conditions have been very thermic and at times quite strong.  Our paragliding students do not fly in the very strong conditions but we rather wait for later in the day when conditions calm for lovely late afternoon thermalling and soaring.

Fun paragliding introductory course

Our last introductory paragliding course was great fun. Day one: Wind was quite strong. We took the paragliding students to a large field with small ground handling wings and had a good ground handling training session. We continued with this in the afternoon at our standard landing field. Day 2: Low cloudbase. We took the students to a lower site below the clouds. There we managed some low level flights very successfully. We then moved to a higher takeoff site and the students had two top to bottom fligths with an instructor at take-off to assist with launch and an instructor in the landing field to guide students in for landing.

Paragliding training

Paragliding courses and tandem flights are fun and amazing.  Part of the important skills learned in paragliding is the ground training.  The better one can handle a paraglider on the ground, the better you will be able to handle her in the air.
