6-Day Intermediate Paragliding course


It is so easy to start and addict to paragliding but in order to enjoy it long years you should understand it more.

   The main purpose of our intermediate course is to prepare the beginner and inexperienced pilots for independent and safe discovery of new horizons in paragliding. It is also useful for filling up the post beginner's gap of irregular flying due to lack of good weather or free time.

   Before starting the course you will make a demo flight to direct us for your previous experience and where to focus on your further training. Depending on weather and your previous knowledge and skills in most cases you should expect the following training program:

Day 1: Active and safe flying: 2-4 solo flights from the high mountain. Practicing 360 and S-turns. Post flight analyses.

Day 2: 2-4 solo flights from the high mountain. Performing "Small Ears" and "Big Ears". Landing on smaller alternative landing places.

Day 3: Collapses: 2-4 solo flights from the high mountain. Simulating asymmetric and front collapses in the air. Developing skills of active flying in turbulent conditions.

Day 4: Basic acrobatics: wingovers and spirals. 2-4 flights from the high mountain. Aerodynamics and Dynamics of flight.

Day 5: Soaring: 2-4 long flights of thermal or ridge soaring (depends on conditions and may involve flying new sites). Assessing unknown flying sites and conditions. Theory of soaring flights, micrometeorology and terrain features.

Day 6: Soaring: 2-4 long flights of thermal or ridge soaring (depends on conditions and may involve flying new sites). Thermalling technique, XC theory, micro and macro meteorology and weather forecasts.

After the completion of the course you can fly independently from different flying sites and conditions but it's always better to look for advice from local and experienced pilots (they probably won't refuse buying them a beer in the pub in the evening or offering them a transport to the flying site :-)
