Goal: to pilot your first major flights.
This course will allow you to pilot your first major flights via a thorough progression and provide you with a solid foundation in your training towards becoming a pilot.
Beginner paragliding course program:
You will first learn to maneuver a paraglider on a low-angle slope to become comfortable with the basic techniques. Then, to become more familiar with your gear, you will learn how to set up, unfold, lie out, and inflate your wing.
During these sessions, you will pilot your first short flights on our training hill, gliding for just a few seconds one or two meters off the ground.

Classroom sessions are also part of the course (weather, atmospheric conditions, flight mechanics, regulations…).

These sessions are followed by an instructional tandem flight, placing you in a real piloting situation with your instructor to prepare you for your first major solo flight and to experience each individual step in the process (flight plan, approach, landing…).

Once you have a good handle on each step you will pilot your first major solo flight, ranging from 400m to 800m of vertical drop. One of your instructors will be at the takeoff area, and the other at the landing area, each guiding you by radio and having you work on different piloting techniques.

The planned ground sessions and flight times are subject to changes based on the weather; we will optimize each with a mix of training-hill time, classroom sessions, and flights.
