This course is framed to give the students a good and clear idea about paragliding. The first morning we do an introductory session where you familiarize yourself with the equipment. You will then be shown several demonstrations for inflating the glider. You will then be suited appropriately to your gear depending on your weight and height. Practice starts from day one, learning to be comfortable with the paraglider and its controls. Theory classes will be done after ground handling sessions. From there, we go on to bunny hops from a gentle slope, learning the take-off and landing techniques. Once you have mastered these hops, it?s time to go for your first solo flight.
