Our 3 day introductory course will give you a glimpse into the exciting sports of Paragliding, or Powered Paragliding, also known as Paramotoring. With 3 intensive days of training, and instruction, you will gain the skills necessary to take your first flight*, under instructor supervision.
You will become familiar with the gear, and learn how to “kite” the wing, which is the foundation of safely launching, flying, and landing a paraglider, or paramotor.
After completion of the training course, we will schedule your first flight**, at one of many amazing sites, in southern Arizona, that will be conducted under the full supervision, of your instructor. You will have radio contact, from the ground, and your instructor will guide you through every phase of your first flight, from launch, flight, and landing.
If you decide that this sport IS for you, then we will apply your Intro Course fees toward our complete training course, that will transform you into a Paraglider, or Paramotor pilot, that will be capable of launching, flying, and landing, without the need for instructor supervision.
The Introductory Course offers an amazing adventure, that can take you to the skies, in a way that has to be seen to be believed!
* Glide America/ Glideamerica.com reserves the right to not provide a supervised flight, if, for any reason, or safety concern, that would reasonably put the student at unnecessary risk of personal injury, or death. This could include, but is not limited to a lack of acceptable kiting proficiency, physical limitations, such as mobility, or injury, or any other factor, that may cause concern for the safety of the student pilot.
** Additional training, or improved proficiency, may be required, before scheduling your first flight, under the introductory course. If that is the case, your instructor will provide you with a detailed explanation, in writing, of what further requirements must be met, to safely clear you for flight under instructor supervision.
*** Flight training, can only be done with YOUR gear, and can be scheduled once you have achieved an appropriate skill level, regarding ground handling, of the paraglider wing. You must learn how to first control the wing on the ground, before you can take it to the skies.
