Why do an SIV course ?

I want to learn how to 

SIV with JOCKY SANDERSON

This SIV course has evolved and been perfected over 30 years and is probably the most famous and talked about course we offer. 
Our courses constantly evolve with glider designs and the progress in our sport. 



You are taught all aspects of controlling your wing during the SIV, from deflations and wingovers to stall recovery and SATS, (if you wish). Then, when you fly XC, you have the added confidence and skill in glider control, which allows you to focus on positive things like finding lift and coring, which frees your mind and helps you fly further.



We offer 3 formats of training, to suit pilots of all levels. These formats can run in parallel during a course, so for eg, one pilot could be doing pilotage manouevres while the other is perfecting his SAT technique.

Pilotage

Pilotage is a mild form of an SIV course, where the pilot focuses more on glider control, manoeuvrability and sensitivity. This builds up your skillset and confidence in turning tightly, understanding the limits and using the pitch to core in thermals etc. 

SIV

SIV is designed to give pilots more confidence in their ability and know the limits of your glider. It teaches you recovery techniques for situations you may encounter during a cross-country flight, enabling you to turn a negative into a positive and fly further

Intro to Acro

We teach the main foundation acro moves and acro philosophy, including SATS,
 tail-slides acro-stall, spins,
wingovers and hello-intros

30+ years of experience

Our courses are constantly evolving  every year to match the progress in the sport, glider development and handling
