Canungra Paragliding and Hang Gliding School - Canungra Sky Sports

Paragliding Day Course

A one day lesson is a great way to give paragliding a go and see if  this is the sport for you. We will cover equipment, launch techniques, pre-flight checks, and basic flying skills. You will fly solo when you and your instructor think it's appropriate!

Canungra Sky Sports will provide the student with all of the required paragliding equipment during these classes, including gliders, harnesses, radios, and helmets.  

Students should bring sturdy footwear. This course delivers an excellent idea of what is involved in paragliding. 


What to Expect:

Your day lesson begins with an equipment introduction and demonstration. You learn how to set the glider up. Then you will learn to launch and ground handle the paraglider on gentle slopes close to the ground. We practice inflating and controlling the wing on the ground, learning the launch sequence, discussing the landing, and steering skills before introducing the element of flight.  Confidence will often grow at this point and you may surprise yourself with how quickly you are progressing.

In the afternoon, look forward to solo flights from gentle training hills. Depending on your skills, confidence and the conditions, your instructor will give you the option to fly higher from the training slopes.
