WHAT WILL I LEARN?
During the one-day paragliding course, you will learn the basic skills required to take-off and land followed at the end of the day by a tandem flight, where you can take the controls and learn the basics of controlling the glider in the air whilst in the safety of flying with a qualified FSVL tandem pilot.
This is a really exciting course where you will gain a lot of airtime and start to really become confident in the air. This course has a jam-packed syllabus where you will be learning new and important exercises on every flight as well as starting to safely take-off and land without any input from our instructors. You will also learn high-wind launch techniques as well as some classroom based theory lessons on meteorology, aerodynamics and other subjects that will help you become a better and safer pilot.
The aim of this course is that you will leave our school qualified and feeling confident to go and fly alone.

Stu and Mike run a very slick operation, top class instructors / guides, very safe and relaxed fun atmosphere, suitable for all levels of pilots. The top take off from Ruinettes (2200m) is a large grassy easy slope, with a spectacular view. It is free from crowds and you can take off from where you set up. The landing field is in a flat wide valley surrounded by open pasture. There is usually an option of up to 4 flights a day so even if your thermalling is not quite up to scratch there is still plenty of action / opportunity.
