This course is a fun and action packed 2-day introduction to paragliding course. It is designed to give you an understanding of what paragliding is and if flying paragliders is for you. It can also be attended by tourists who want a fun 2-day activity while travelling in South Africa.
The course runs over 2 full days. We will start with an introduction to paragliding equipment where you will have an explanation of all the different gear we use when paragliding. After seeing and familiarizing with the gear you will be given a paraglider to use for the first practical lesson which will be an introduction to ground handling the paraglider, this will prepare you on how to control the paraglider for your first flight. Once you show good ground control and the weather allows you will do your first ground skimming flights from a sand dune.
On the second day of the course, you will continue to fly your own while being instructed using a two-way radio. You will spend most of the day flying the paraglider on your own, if the wind allows you will also be doing an instructional tandem flight with an instructor.
