In the will to create a follow-up for our students, we have created a progression scale specific to Freedom which will allow you to know your level in paragliding, the different past, present and future stages in your practice and guide you in your progression and your choice to continue the courses with us.
It is important to understand that this scale is only a guideline of the "perfect path" in paragliding progression; that many will not necessarily respect it, since everyone has different sensations, learning preferences, and level of progression.
In the magnificent setting of Lake Annecy, the objective of this course is to make you work on your piloting technique through numerous personalized exercises. You will first see fundamental piloting exercises (pitching phases, braking, roll control, etc...) and then you will be able to move on to more advanced exercises such as aerobatics or fast descents. We will build a solid base of skills that will allow you to progress step by step to more advanced manoeuvres.
We will also work on the safety side of things, with exercises to work on your handling of in-flight incidents.
To be able to attend the SIV course, as for the advanced course, it is necessary to be totally autonomous during your flights (take-off, in flight and landing) and to have already many hours of solo flights. Having your own equipment is also mandatory for this course.
You will come out of this course with a better piloting technique. You will know how to better manage the pendular movements of your wing and the associated energy as well as manage possible flight incidents. Several solutions are offered to you according to your level and your desires:
Fly independently, working on everything you have learned in the course to continue your progression solo.
To do an itinerant course (if you haven't done one yet) to discover new paragliding spots in France, in "colo" mode, and to work on flight plan and piloting exercises in places where you have never flown before.
