Fly a paraglider on your own!
Our Introduction courses allows you to be introduced slowly into the sport of paragliding at your own pace. The one or two-day option gives you the chance to realise whether the sport is for you or not by paying a minimal fee and getting the feel of it. Once you ready or are already convinced you want to become a paragliding pilot, you will do the basic license course. Should you decide to progress to the basic license course from an introduction course, you will only be charged the balance of the basic license course.
This course is focused on you flying solo for the first time, under instructor guidance via two-way radio. Therefore, more time is spent ground handling the paraglider and more in depth theory classes on flight planning, meteorology and aerodynamics.
You will immediately be registered with SAHPA as a temporary student for 6 months and also receive a SAHPA training manual.
