Paragliding Day Taster

From nothing to flying a paraglider on your own in just one day!  On your first day of paragliding we follow the British Hang Gliding and Paragliding Association's Elementary Pilot Certificate syllabus and get you up to a stage of flying on your own, at low level.

Saftey is our priority and we start the day with a basic theory lecture and necessary paperwork. We then practise our parachute landing falls (a must at the beginning of each flying day), and move on to getting the gear out and learning how to inspect it for airworthiness. Once familiar with the flying kit, you will then learn how to launch and control the paraglider on the ground.  When you are happy with this, you can progress onto the first low flights.

All of your training will be with our experienced and qualified BHPA instructors whose aim is to keep you safe and having fun!

What you will need on the day:

  • A pair of walking boots with ankle support.
  • Your voucher and any other paperwork we sent you
  • A bottle of water (we do have a cafe if you wish to buy lunch/drinks)
  • Layers of clothing that you can adjust according to the temperature

 You can add a tandem paraglider flight to your day taster for an extra £30 (usual cost £55) [Please note that the max weight for a Tandem Paraglider Flight is 14.5 Stone/92KG]

(Note: If you decide to go on to do a paragliding course, you can credit the cost of your taster day against the price of the course).
