• INTERNATIONALLY RECOGNISED PARAGLIDING & PARAMOTOR TRAINING

WANT THE BEST TRAINING FIRST TIME?

Our Learn to Paraglide Course is structured over a minimum of 8 days by some of Australia’s most accomplished instructors. Our course is known to be one of the most intensive and well-structured courses offered. We pride ourselves on producing confident pilots, not just students with a qualification.

 

It is well known that the advantage of our location here in Laurieton is its impressive access to over 15 flying sites. Whether you know or understand it now, learning to paraglide on one or limited sites is not going to set you up with confidence to fly the extensive and impressive sites that Australia has to offer – or most importantly the sites local to you.

 

Time and time again we need to re-teach pilots who have learnt to paraglide in conditions that are not familiar to them when they return back to home flying environment.  Sold on the fact that they are being taught on biggest and best mountains, by the most experienced instructors – only to get home and have little concept of how to fly their local sites. Often achieving nothing because the conditions have been too advanced to teach beginner pilots. 

We train on sites that offer variations in training conditions and wind directions. From our own privately leased training hill to the low coastal headlands of Bonny Hills, Port Macquarie and Indian head (to name a few) that offer soft safe beach access landings and optimal soaring conditions.

 

We are quite literally based at the bottom of one of the highest student training sites in Australia – North Brother Mountain with an elevation of 476 metres (1,560ft) and 10 minutes from Middle Brother Mountain – 554 meters (1,818ft).

 

These high mountain sites offer exceptional soaring and thermic conditions.

FAQ: SO WHAT IS A TYPICAL DAY LIKE?
  • WELCOME

    It’s an 8.30am kick-off on Day 1 while we get all the paperwork checked off. Meet all the instructors and familiarise yourself with your personal gear for the course.

  • SIMULATOR

    Then it’s straight into the simulator where you get the feel of what being in the harness is going to be like.

  • TRAINING HILL

    The training hill is where you will practice your launch and landing techniques. These short calm flights help gain confidence and control of the glider.

  • TANDEM FLIGHTS

    Over the course of your training, tandem flights are used to give you hands-on experience of flight control while under the direct supervision of your instructor.

  • CLASSROOM THEORY

    Classroom theory is an important part of your learning process. We like to use any ‘down’ time to take in the theory classes and make the most of the day for flying.

  • LOW COASTAL FLIGHTS

    Your first solo flights will be from one of our low coastal headlands. These headlands offer easy beach landing. Coastal sites are great for gaining ridge soaring experience and confidence.

  • HIGH FLIGHTS

    Nothing beats your first solo high flight. Taken from either North Brother or Middle Brother Mountain, the thrill will stay with you forever!

  • ACCOMMODATION

    When you’ve finished up a great day, come home to self-contained private or shared units. Fully air-conditioned, double beds and 250mtrs to the shops and pub. Comfort and ease is key!
