ONE DAY TRAINING

Taster Day

Similar to an accelerated free fall course, the taster day is basically the first day of a full Elementary Paragliding course, with the main focus on getting you flying for yourself, under radio instruction and take-off and landing guidance. Because of this intensity, you are often given 1-to-1 training with an instructor. All training stages are signed and logged so if you enjoy the day you can simply carry on and enrol on the BHPA's Elementary Paragliding Course.

After some administration and a short theory session you'll go flying! On a good flyable day you will normally have 2-6 solo flights on your day taster from varying heights depending on your ability, the site, and the conditions on the day. All your flights and training phases are written into your log book and kept by the school as a record.

We want you to have fun and we will doing everything possible to ensure you have a great day ! If you have any questions about the taster day, or if you wish to arrange a special gift or group booking, then please call the office on 07771783336.
We are here to help.

Duration : 1 Day  |  Fees : £220

Will I be scared? Do I have to be fit?

All training in paragliding is progressive, you go at your own pace, so you are comfortable with each new step before you take it.

You have to be able to walk up and down hills at your pace, so yes you do have to be fit. If you are registered disabled, then you can get a scholarship from Flyability and come on our specialist courses using buggy's designed by us. But if you can walk then it is easy to just walk up and down from the landing to the take off.


When can I take my day taster?

We operate within 20 miles of Keswick, from April to November, so all you have to do is call us to arrange a suitable day. Then call the office the day before you are booked to fly to confirm the weather is suitable for training. 



All being well, come to the Flight Park at 10Am on the day, where we will arrange the administration and allocate you with your own glider and equipment. We will then drive to the training site.

Is it insured?

All our training is provided in accordance with strict BHPA guidelines, who also provide the insurance with your membership, that you receive on day 1 of your training. We also offer addition personal accident insurance for an extra premium. 



You will be given a comprehensive briefing on the various options available to you at the first briefing but if you require more details the please contact the office and we will be happy to help.
