Similar to an accelerated free fall course, the taster day is basically the first day of a full Elementary Paragliding course, with the main focus on getting you flying for yourself, under radio instruction and take-off and landing guidance. Because of this intensity, you are often given 1-to-1 training with an instructor. All training stages are signed and logged so if you enjoy the day you can simply carry on and enrol on the BHPA's Elementary Paragliding Course.
After some administration and a short theory session you'll go flying! On a good flyable day you will normally have 2-6 solo flights on your day taster from varying heights depending on your ability, the site, and the conditions on the day. All your flights and training phases are written into your log book and kept by the school as a record.
We want you to have fun and we will doing everything possible to ensure you have a great day ! If you have any questions about the taster day, or if you wish to arrange a special gift or group booking, then please call the office on 07771783336.
