Clothes & shoes for paragliding

You'll need a pair of shoes with good traction and knee protection. Consider hiking boots.  They are inconvenient, but they are preferred better than broken or sprained ankles. There will be a lot of running and dragging, so investing in a nice shoe will be worthwhile.

Clothes must also offer some protection from abrasions.

You'll need gear that's suitable for the season and provides optimum sun protection.

Please wear clothes that have zippers. You will lose your phone, money, and other valuables if you run with a paraglider.

Physical Fitness

The first three days of paragliding training (P1) are strenuous in terms of physical exertion. You must be physically capable of running/jogging/walking 2-3 kilometers. At the very least, be able to carry 12-15kg for a kilometer. Please begin training a month before the commencement of your paragliding course and get in shape. You will not enjoy your P1 course if you do not do so.

Mind & Time

Meeting after meeting after meeting.  Many of the students who come to us are anxious about their work and appear to be constantly in meetings.

Training them is challenging. You can never gain confidence in your takeoff method if you are not 100 percent committed to your paragliding course.

If we believe a pupil is incapable of flying, we do not let them do so. Before you come to training, please make sure your schedule and calendar are clear.

We admire folks who have an optimistic outlook on life. As a paragliding student, you will experience physical and emotional strain, as well as frustrations and feelings of wanting to give up.

We will assist you in all of these areas as teachers, but the only need is that you are determined to never give up.

Persist, and when you leave the ground and take your first flight, it will all be worth it. You can rely on us.

Safety precautions

I know, it's a bit of a dramatic image. We place a high priority on safety. We must ensure your safety.

We reiterate safety guidelines and become enraged when kids disregard them. Unlike other activities, paragliding has the potential to be fatal.

Please keep this in mind and make sure everything is correct. If anything doesn't seem right, ask your professors hundreds of times. Trust your instincts. Trust your training. Never blindly trust your equipment.

Don't forget to bring hydration bags/water bottles

Dehydration occurs as a result of exposure to the sun, which leads to a loss of focus. Please consider purchasing a hydration backpack; they are inexpensive and well worth the investment.

We notice a lot of youngsters begging for water from other classmates. It is priceless to everyone and difficult to share.

It's a simple thing, but it'll be crucial. Wear sunglasses and use decent UV sunscreen. These are necessary instruments for a pleasurable training experience. Carry glucose and sweets with you to eat during your training
