Program of progression training:
We will start with you flying first, so we see what your skill level is and make an individual plan for you. Everyone will have to pass all our benchmarks in the training process but some may need more focus on this and some more attention to that. We will do training very individually. This is why we will do it in a small group with two instructors.
At the beginning we will do some advanced groundhandling techniques. Truly, groundhandling is the key. I have learned this from my friend Javi Malaguita who is one of the best acro paramotor pilots out there. He just cut out the center part of his acro glider and sewed it together to make it smaller and even more spicy. Groundhandling with a spicy super-fast and nervous glider is a valuable lesson. We will have some for you.
We will continue with advanced launching techniques. These are the factors that make take-offs more demanding:
- nil-wind or cross-wind
- full tank heavy loaded
- tight spots
And we will combine all of it at once! While at your home filed you rarely face such combination it happens quite often on our adventure trips and this is what many pilots pilots struggle the most with. Yet there is a technique to master such challenges and we will show you how. Proof of our success will be if you remember every single failed take-off from now on, because there will be so few.
We will also practice proper landing technique and precision landing. Its a must for adventure flying as you may face a forced landing on a tight spot.
We will get high and fly the thermals with the paramotor. By the end of this training you will be a lot less scared of turbulence and trust your glider (and yourself) a lot more than ever before.
At the end of the training we will add some paramotor slalom sessions. We will carefully explain how to use the 2D steering around the cones and speedbar on entry and exit of the turn. Precise timing and energy management is very important. You will have the opportunity to try some advanced slalom gliders of sizes 18, 20 and 22.
As a bonus, we may spice it up with some basics acro maneuvers if you like.
