Paragliding Licence

The Paragliding Licence Course is by far the most popular course we offer. This course takes you from being a complete beginner, having never touched a paraglider before, through to becoming a licenced novice paraglider pilot. Our  group size allows us to customise training to suit the level of each individual student. During your Paragliding Licence Course we cover inland and coastal  techniques. “ The pilot skill level at the completion of the course is well above that required by the SAFA syllabus.” – Fred.
