Basic paragliding course
The basic paragliding course offers you the opportunity to become a paraglider pilot. It’s eight-day intensive training, during which you can get the necessary theoretical knowledge (meteorology, aerodynamics, aviation regulations, …) and the practical skills needed for independent flying. The training begins on a training meadow, then flies from a large hill with an elevation of about 400m. Upon successful completion of the course, the participant will receive a Personal sheet, based on which you can apply for pilot license at the Light Aircraft Association of the Czech Republic.
Courses take place in beautiful surroundings of the Beskydy Mountains. The HQ is our PG Hnízdo in Čeladná. The training will take place first on smaller slopes, one of which lies in the vicinity of the cottage. For flights from a large hill, mainly Ondřejník Skalka, Javorový, Velký Javorník and Straník will be used.
The training is done by experienced instructors, who will guide you through the training using a radio.
