ELEMENTARY SOLO PILOT COURSE – BEGINNER
The solo pilot course is one of our paragliding course for complete novices, and is the first step in getting qualified to be a paragliding pilot, (international certification level 1-2). By the end of your week you can expect to be enjoying solo flights of more or less 15 minutes or flying more than 300 meters height.
The location of our paraglidimg school allows you to take advantage of the excellent weather conditions and high mountains of Rizal for maximum airtime!
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.
Next steps in gaining your certification
The Elementary Pilot award is not a qualification but just a stepping stone in getting certified to fly unsupervised. To get certified to fly a paraglider and be able to get insured you need to then complete the Club Pilot course which is another 5 day course.
If you have the time you can also do the full regular course which is the quickest and easiest way to learn to paraglide and finish with a qualification that allows you to fly unsupervised.
We GUARANTEE that you will complete your basic course in under a week.
