The course will be devided into 2 sections:
- Theory classes at The Babu Adventures International School/Resort (7am to 10am)
- Practical training at our training hills (11am to 3.30pm)
During the first 5 days, the students will be introduced to the basics of paragliding: equipment, aerodynamic, meteorology, emergency, safety techniques and reglementation. Next to the theory classes the students will also discover the equipment and practice ground handling, pre-flight procedures, forward launching, landing technique and finally do their first low level solo flight.
The next 5 days of the course will focus on practice. The students will learn reverse launching, approaching landing zone, flying with others, weight shifting, glider movement control. They will also pursue their learning in aerodynamic, meteorology and radio communication.
In the last 5 days of the course, the students will deepen their skills and knowledge to become an independent solo pilot and be able to fly without supervision. They will learn to analyse the weather conditions and get an introduction to thermalling, flat land and alpine flying techniques.
