This is the first stage for learning to paraglide. Most students achieve their Elementary Pilot in four-five days, these do not have to be consecutive days. The course can be spread over a short period of weekdays or weekends, dependent on the weather and your availability. Our aim is to teach you the primary skills of flying paragliders, training in very small groups of no more than 4, with all pilots given their own equipment during training.
