2 Day Intro Course
Once you’re hooked and want to learn more about paragliding then take our Intro course package deal to continue to the next step. We will give you ground-handling training with our custom pull-up wings to get you started and take you for your first flights off the Wilderness dunes. This Intro course will also include instructional tandem flights with a SAHPA certified and licenced grade A or B instructor. These initial ground skimming & tandem instructional flights will be the first steps towards your license when you continue and complete the Basic Licence course. All certified training equipment will be supplied. Remember paragliding is weather dependent.
At the end of the 2-day Intro course, you can choose to continue immediately with the rest of the 9-12 day Basic Licence course. All your flights and Introductory course fees will be credited towards your basic license course fees.
The following basics will be covered in the Intro course:
EQUIPMENT • GROUND CONTROL • SAFETY • FIRST GROUND SKIMMING FLIGHTS • INSTRUCTIONAL TANDEM
