Goal: to teach you to pilot on your own.
This course follows up the beginner course to refine your piloting technique and broaden your theoretical understanding of all aspects of paragliding.

Once your first big flights are done, you will have to improve your technique to have a good control of the piloting as well as to repeat big flights to allow you to reach progressively your autonomy. At this stage, you will be able to make your ranges and the satisfaction is great to find yourself progressively autonomous.

The course begins with a small return to the school slope allowing you to check the gestures of each one and to get back to your bearings.

Then we will try to make a series of long flights on various sites allowing you to gain experience, working on different takeoffs and landings, always in easy aerological conditions. At the same time, we will progressively bring you to a radio weaning, leaving you more and more autonomy, within a well defined framework. Small exercises of roll, pitch, dynamic turns will be explained to you and you will work on them during each flight, the same for the different approaches.

A technical work will also be done on the ground in order to see different inflation techniques.

All this will be completed by more in-depth theoretical courses giving you all the necessary elements for a safe practice.

This course is also the opportunity to prepare the initial pilot's license.
