Advanced paragliding course

Fly everywhere with serenity, it's possible !

Analyze weather conditions of the day, make a flight plan whatever the flight area, take off and land with the highest level of safety. Those are the objectives Freedom parapente will take you to.
Personalized exercises, depending on your level, a precise follow-up of your progression.
Your instructors are here for you.

Who is this course for?

This paragliding course is aimed at people who already have autonomy in flight, take-off and landing, who have an initial certificate or personal practice validating this level. It is also compulsory to have your own equipment. This course is made for people wishing to continue their progression towards even more advanced exercises: exploitation of thermals, transient phases, active piloting, total autonomy in flight, flight plan, ... (all theoretical and practical skills are developed below) Many points to see to acquire more technique and total autonomy in flight at the end of the course and perhaps validate the pilot's license at the end of the course.

5 days course : all season

Possible contents of an Advanced paragliding course :
