Canungra Paragliding and Hang Gliding School - Canungra Sky Sports

Beginner Course

2 Day Introductory Paragliding Course

What to Expect: This course runs over two days. On the first morning you learn to set up the glider, hook in and to do your safety checks. Then you will learn to ground handle the paraglider. Depending on your progression, you will move onto gentle slopes and you may start getting your feet off the ground. Gaining more height as your ability and confidence increases. You will learn basic skills used to control the paraglider.

Students will do a lot of repetition on the training slopes and be taught important theory over the two days.

At the completition of the intro course you will know if paragliding is the sport for you. You can either continue on to complete the restricted course, do one of the instructional paragliding tandems. You may also just want to leave with a basic understanding of what it is like to fly a paraglider.

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. Private instruction is also available
