Paragliding Cross Country Clinic

You can get to cloud-base, but then what? This is a very common problem that we see with pilots who come to train with us. That is why this cross country (XC) paragliding course is designed to teach you the basic and necessary skills to fly XC. As well as fine-tuning any thermalling skills and coaching you on more advanced thermalling techniques we will also cover some of the following:

  • Understanding the weather and how to predict a good XC day.
  • Good decision making. This is the key in successful XC flights.
  • Linking thermals.
  • Reading the sky and reading the ground….and when to do which.
  • Speeds to Fly – Flying with maximum efficiency.
  • Keeping safe in the mountains – Really understanding leeside thermals and not ending up in one.
  • How to fly in turbulent air.
  • Landing-out techniques. (too many people want to fly XC but are not competent at landing anywhere).
