Course Overview

paragliding ground handling practice

The Basics

SIMULATOR: This is where you'll get a first feel of what it's like being in the harness.

GROUND HANDLING: Learn fundamental 'kiting' skills and how to respond to your glider.

TANDEM FLIGHTS: Used to give you supervised, hands-on experience of flight control.

LAUNCH & LANDING PRACTICE: Learn forward and reverse launch techniques plus assessment of site ground conditions and safe landing options.


The Practice

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!

WINCH TOWING: Used on the beach to get you flying in nil wind.

The Theory

When the conditions aren't right for flying, we use this 'down time' for theory classes.

The SAFA Training Syllabus is thorough, and so are our theory classes. Topics include: airspace rules and regulations, drag and thrust, torque effects, principals of flight, meteorology, emergency procedures and navigation.

Assessment of theory is via multiple choice exams.
