Expect to fly your first day.
Solo lessons start on the training hill,
working your way up higher and higher at your own comfort level.
All under instructor guidance building skills to move on to soaring high flights.
Most get to their first solo high flight by the end of the first day.
Your paraglider pilot certification with MAX ROC takes 7 days on average.
Lessons are usually one day a week where we are out actually flying.
Followed with homework for the week, some reading, and DVD's to study.
To make it easier and more affordable for you we have broke our classes down into 2 sections as set forth by
the United States Hang Gliding and Paragliding Assn.
The beginner rating and the novice certification course.
Your USHPA Beginner rating"P1" takes 2-3 days and is a huge step forward to becoming a true paragliding pilot. The (P1) gets you to the point of flying solo from high sites under direct instructor supervision.
At this point you may purchase gear.
Your USHPA Novice rating "P2" is much more in depth.
The classes continue on with soaring skills, dealing with real world flying scenarios and
gives you all the tools you will need to fly and fly well. Most complete the (P2) portion 4 flying days after finishing the beginner course. All lessons and tandems must be prepaid in advance.
