Experience Taster & Introductory Course

TWO COURSES TO LEARN THE BASICS OF PARAGLIDING

For those who want to fly on their own, and for those who wish to continue learning, we offer two different types of courses for students to experience the school. Each course is tailored to the student's own pace.

Introductory Course

Aim: to achieve a 30m solo flight after 4 days of practice lessons.
In this Introductory Course, you will have 4 days of over 90 minutes of practical training.
Depending on your progress, you will be given the chance to make a solo flight from 30m of elevation.

Experience Taster

Two days of practical lessons with a bonus tandem flight!
In the Experience Taster Course, you will have 2 days of over 90 minutes of practical training and a class, in the form of a tandem flight with one of our experienced instructors.

From Day Two

From the second day onwards, you will continue practicing on the slopes. Once the flying conditions (sufficient technical skill and suitable wind conditions) are satisfactory, you will be allowed to try a solo flight from 30m.

Experience Taster

Once the practical training is over, you will have a tandem flight lesson.

Note: the tandem flight is usually scheduled after the practical training on Day 1. However, depending on the weather conditions it may be held on Day 2.
