Paragliding(PG)

 

Paragliding is initially so simple that most new students fly within their first day or two. This is a sport where you get to have fun right away and then continue with a relatively quick learning curve. Within just a few days you might be soaring for hours. Your arms seem like wings as they control the paraglider above you; your flying position is as comfortable as a recliner.

 

The thrill is unlike anything ever before experienced. For most of us the sport is the ultimate! 

You need:

Reasonable physical health and good coordination

8 - 14 training days

 

Your own suitable equipment (speak to us!)

 

SAHPA

 

South African Hanggliding and Paragliding Association is the Licensing authority of this awesome adventure aviation activity in SA. Apart from it being legally compulsory to have a SAHPA license if you want to fly a paraglider the benefits are obvious. Aviation comes with some inherent risks which anybody who wishes to participate needs to be made aware of in order for them to implement the necessary risk management and enjoy the pleasures of flying safely.

 

SAHPA licenses are internationally recognized and are also accepted by insurance and legal institutions.
