Paragliding Courses

Discovery Session

It aims to introduce you to the world of paragliding through ground control practices and a tandem sensation flight in Curiti, during which you are allowed to pilot the wing for a few minutes under the pilot’s supervision.

Learnd and Fly

3 hours of field school + Tandem sensation in Curiti

The field school is a small slope used to learn to control the paraglider on the ground, understand the behavior of the wing, and if progress is sufficient, make small flights at low altitude. Once this practice is completed, a tandem sensation flight in Curiti is conducted with the instruction of a certified pilot who explains what to do at all times. During this flight, the pilot allows the student to steer the paraglider for a few minutes, depending on the conditions and the student’s skill level.

What does the course consist of?

The course is tailored to each student’s individual progression; however, we aim to follow the following itinerary:

  1. This course is entirely focused on practical training.
  2. The first 3 hours take place at the school field located in Curiti Santander, where we begin ground control of the wing and perhaps some short flights (*decision made based on the student’s progress).
  3. Once the previous practice is completed, we head to the flying site in Curiti to conduct the tandem sensation flight.

Security and fun guaranteed

Conquer the wind, feel the freedom

3 flying locations for me would be

We have three flying locations that allow you to evolve in both types of paragliding flight, both dynamic and thermal. During this course, inductive flights and practices will be conducted at the three flying locations (Curití, Ruitoque, and Chicamocha Canyon). However, the location for conducting the final practices (autonomy) will be decided based on each student’s individual progress.
