PILOT BEGINNER COURSE

By the end of your week, you can expect to be enjoying long solo flights of up to 25 minutes. Boasting over 300 flyable days a year and high mountain launches, learning to fly in Verbier allows beginners  maximum learning time!

WHAT WILL I LEARN?

This is an extremely fun course with lots of practical outdoor aspects and also some theory classes. The first 1 or 2 days are spent on the training hill learning to take-off safely with a small amount of essential theory… all with the aim of getting you flying solo as soon as possible. You will then fairly quickly progress on to short solo flights learning a number of various skills in the air.

OBJECTIVE

From paragliding beginner to competently flying solo.
