Some people need to touch and feel a paraglider to know if they want to really get into the sport.
The 1 day intro is the ideal way to get introduced into the sport as well as meet some of the Poliglide team as we typically cover the following-
– Tandem Introductory Flight (TIF), weather permitting
– A test hang in the simulator
– Some ground handling using either full size or mini paragliding wings
– Small low glides from a hill or tow system depending on the season
As the weather is our critical factor the our team will develop and implement a program based on the wind strength and direction. During university studies in sport and exercise science our chief flight instructor Andrew Polidano developed a series of practical paragliding activities that have also been substituted for outside learning during inclement weather.
You ability to take on the new information is a key factor when determining what you achieve during the day.
The focus is to create a safe training environment and offer room for people to step out and challenge themselves while being professionally guided. For this reason everyone will be focused on achieving their own personal goals.
If you have a friend that you think is interested in this sport this day makes a great gift voucher.
