Paragliding - Thermal & XC

Advanced XC / Competition Training

Although most pilots joining this course will already have some XC experience, others will come hoping to have XC flying demystified.  Paragliding is a truly extraordinary experience. We believe that learning to fly XC should be an evolutionary experience based on the understanding of how our glider flows and moves in a mountain environment and get the most from our XC flying.

We learn best by practice. Our number one aim will be to give you the opportunity to fly as much and as safely as possible.  Because we know you want to be as safe as you can be and have as much fun as possible we are proposing to spend approximately one hour each day (usually in the morning) exploring topics related to XC and mountain flying.
