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 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
We teach the main foundation acro moves and acro philosophy, including SATS,
tail-slides acro-stall, spins,
wingovers and hello-intros
Our courses are constantly evolving every year to match the progress in the sport, glider development and handling
Although we brief and debrief as a group, your flights are 1:1 training with just Jocky
Routines are structured and customised to match your skillset and comfort
All pilots are given an inflatable collar and water proof bag. We always have a safety boat with crew, ready for a swift rescue
We film all your flights in HD, used during debriefs and available for you at the end of the course for further learning
We assist you in all your accommodation and transfer requirements
We have been running our courses in Oludeniz for over 30 years & famous location of Security in Flight films. With very reliable weather and up to 1500m altitude in the flight zone, you can maximise your learning with multiple repetitions for every manoeuvre.
