Learn to Paraglide, Learn to Fly! It has never been this easy to become a pilot!

Paragliding technology has advanced significantly in the 20th century and has become very affordable as well as improved accessibility, aerodynamic performance, and ultimately safety turning it into the easiest aeronautical sport in the world.

With our learn-to-fly courses, you’ll get to dive into all you need to know to learn to fly solo and ultimately become a competent pilot after completing the course.
You will learn basic flying techniques and maneuvers, with in-depth theory classes and assessments. 

Upon completing the course outcomes, you can apply for your paragliding license(from SACAA/SAHPA) and fly unsupervised after receiving your license. Alternatively, keep your progression flowing with our flyaway events to safely progress under supervision.
