This is the best way to begin your journey into experiencing paragliding. On this day, you will learn all about the equipment necessary to fly and even get to kite a glider for your very first time! While this single-day course won't make you a pilot, it will offer you a basic foundation to experience what our sport is all about and help you decide if paragliding is for you.
What to expect during your intro day:
- Introduction to the history of paragliding and free-flight.
- Overview of the equipment used in paragliding (harness, glider, instruments, etc.)
- Introduction to kiting (w/demonstration and coaching).
- Step-by-step coaching in helping you kite the glider yourself for your very first time!
- USHPA Membership (P1)
*Note: While this is NOT a flying course, depending on where this class is held, students MAY have the opportunity to actually fly for their first time via small training hills, depending on conditions and site.
