Ever dreamed of flying? Learn to fly with PG BASE!

Our one day paragliding taster day is a fun day with aim to get you flying as soon as is safe and possible. After your arrival in Brno airport you will be picked up and taken to your accommodation. In the evening there is a time to go for a few drinks and a dinner. Next day you will be registered as a trainee pilot, which provides you with temporary membership and third party liability insurance cover. You will start with an introduction to the sport and learn how to set up the equipment and clip into the paragliding harness. Then we will do some ground based training with the paraglide, learning how to inflate the wing and control it on the ground. Depending on your individual progress and the weather on the day, you would then possibly end the day by achieving your first short solo flight of the day! We will explain and demonstrate all of the techniques first. Everything happens under the expert guidance of our licensed instructors. After the course we organize a delicious barbecue with famous Czech beer for everyone. We love our trainee pilots discussion full of excitement about the course. Following day you do bit of sightseeing or you can try our paramotor tandem flight above the south Moravia, which is a perfect full stop after your exciting weekend.

What happens on a Training day?

Once you have been picked up by our instructors your day will begin with a thorough safety briefing covering all aspects of gliding lessons and the surroundings. You will then work on how to handle the glider when it is on the ground and how to control it when it is above your head. The fun really starts when you start learning to take-off and you will (depending on conditions) finish the day with some low level flights. No-one ever forgets their first taste of free-flight. This course will teach you the basics of Paragliding and as well as being a fun day will provide an excellent grounding if you choose to continue with the sport. We can teach you up to EP, CP and Pilot level which allows you to fly almost anywhere in the world.

Duration/Location

The course will take a full day. We will be based in Brno (Czech Republic) and will fly on nearby hills with suitable wind. In the evening we have normally barbecue and drink famous Czech beer or go to the restaurant to enjoy local cuisine. Our customers love this part 🙂

What to Bring/Wear

The centre will provide you with all the equipment you will need on the day. You should dress appropriately – layers are best so you can take some off if you get hot. You should wear solid footwear ideally with ankle support. Thick gloves are helpful. Take some drink and a small snack is also good idea. You need to download the health form and visit your GP prior the course to confirm that you are health and capable for the paragliding.

Weather

Paragliding is a weather dependent sport. You will be informed by us what day of the weekend will the course go ahead.
