Paragliding at Bulwer

This weekend was quite nice paragliding at Bulwer again.  On Friday some pilots got to around 900m above take off.  Saturday was quite thermic and nice lift especially in the afternoon.  The guys got about 300m above take off. Sunday was a lot more stable but Hans managed three tandem flights and top landing.

Paragliding courses

Wild Sky Paragliding offers an introductory (two day) paragliding course.  Starting on the training slope, there is an introductory lecture, demonstration by the instructor, then students pull up the glider with assistance from the intsructor and learn to steer the glider and stop.  Gradually working your way up the training slope,  you will eventually lift off the ground and experience the feeling of free flight.  The course includes at least one flight under guidance on radio.  Thats right, within two days you will already be flying!
