Paraglider course - Refresher Week-end

new blog

 Do you want to acquire more ease and technique in various conditions ?

You simply want to gain confidence, enrich your experience & refine your theoretical knowledge ?

Are you planning a patent examination, federal training? Future competitor ?


Freedom Paragliding launches in 2020 a new concept of internship / weekend especially aimed at pilots wishing to go to patent passages (BP & BPC).

We have always wanted to keep maximum continuity in the progression of our trainees.

The internship thus takes the form of a continuous training course over 3 weekends. This course will be offered 3 times this year (early spring on April-May, June-July, and finally in the fall on September-October).


hand We ask trainees to register for at least one full course (3 weekends). Everyone is free to participate in several courses, if they wish, progress monitoring will always allow them to progress in training.

The + :

  • Trainee's technical and theoretical progress monitoring sheet (time saving and more individualized progression). Since its inception, Freedom has refused to offer flight logs, or simple à la carte days, and always favors real continuing education, especially for an aerial activity that requires to be taken seriously. With this course over 3 weekends, here is finally training adapted to pilots who could not be free during the week.
  • 2 instructors for a maximum of 7 students
  • Weekend adapted to weather conditions and training program


+ 14 years - Take-off / landing autonomy, personal gear, flight alone on site, initial certificate or personal practice validating the green level and notions of active piloting.

Budget :

790 € / 3 week-ends*, passage of patent included, except the cost of the patent for the Auvergne Rhône-Alpes Free Flight League (25 €)

*Personal gear discount included 10%

 Goals :

Target the progress of trainees in view of passing the certificates
