A Single Day lesson is a great way to try paragliding. If you decide to complete a full rating course, your single day fee will be deducted from your full course tuition.
Use of training gear
Kiting Skills (ground handling)
Short flights if conditions allow
We will meet in the Vallejo/Benicia area in the morning on the desired date of instruction. The exact location will be determined the evening before based on weather conditions. It will be a very hands-on day and the course will last 4 to 6 hours. The course will focus on ground-handling the paraglider as this skill is absolutely necessary to launch safely. It is possible for you to do some very short flights on the first day if conditions are good and the student has good control of the wing.
Please wear long pants and athletic shoes or boots. It is also a good idea to bring a hat and sunscreen. There are no height, weight, or age restrictions but please let us know if you have any physical ailments that we should know about that hinders movement. Expect to have a great day outside and get one on one instruction as you learn to handle a paraglider.
