Introduction paragliding course
Millau : on the way to autonomy
You live in the Aveyron or in the Hérault (Montpellier, Béziers), and you decide to start paragliding here in Millau, a renowned site for free flight. Indeed, it is a good choice because, after your paragliding initiation, you will come back, for sure!
Objective of the training: To reach the first big flights in paragliding with a technical and theoretical preparation.
On the programme: discovery of paragliding equipment and inflation on a school slope adapted to each one for a better progression.
This introductory paragliding course is mainly based on learning basic techniques, discovering lift and piloting in order to access the first take-offs. In addition, you will benefit from an educational tandem flight. The completion of these exercises during the training course is a prerequisite for access to long flights (300m+ altitude difference). Mastering the take-off, respecting the flight plan, turns, maintaining a straight line on a heading and the quality of landings are the main objectives of this first training.
Don’t worry, all flights during the introductory paragliding course are done in radio link with the instructors
