  • General

    During this 6-day training you will put the knowledge and experience of the teaching slope into practice. Most internships take in the French or Austrian Alps. We also travel to Greece, Spain, Slovenia, Italy. The first day is usually spent on getting acquainted with the material and the environment and a repetition of the principles learned on the teaching slope. And then… It’s time for the first high flights!

    Under the guidance of your instructors, you will take to the skies. You’re taking off like you’ve done dozens of times on the training slope. Throughout your flight, you will be guided over the radio, right up to and including the landing. The feeling after that first flight is indescribable!

    As you progress you will make longer flights, and fly more and more autonomously. Your 2 instructors follow you constantly and adjust when needed. The internship also includes theory lessons on meteorology, aviation regulation and aerodynamics.

    At the end of a first high flight training you will have learned to take off, do exercises to control your wing and land. You will have performed some high flights; you will have learned how to fly and adjust to various conditions and you have the basic theory lessons behind you. A busy week!

    The stay is usually in a chalet or we camp. The costs are shared. Transport is agreed at the information meeting; usually there is a cost-sharing drive.

    An info meeting is held in the week before for each training, where all practical details are reviewed. It is always a group of at least 6 and a maximum of 10 people with 2 instructors. If the weather is so bad that it is not possible to fly for more than 3 days, alternatives or a partial refund of your internship fee will be chosen.

    Price

    € 675, the use of all required material (wing, seat harness, reserve, helmet, radio) is included. This is without the mandatory annual insurance.

    Where?

    The location of the training will depend on each individual training week. They can take place in the most beautiful places in France, Spain, Italy, Austria and even Greece. The training weeks outside the school holidays are flexible, which means that we only decide where to go 3 days before the training. This allows us to always go to the region with the best meteorological conditions.

    Insurances

    Paragliding Insurance

    Mandatory. Only Aviabel’s paragliding insurance obtained from the Belgian Federation (BVVF) is valid. This costs € 30 (valid for one calendar year), and we will arrange it for you, if you do not already have it via the training slope.

    Travel Assistance Insurance

    Highly Recommended. Insurance in case you have an accident with paragliding, are in need of medical assistance, and need to be repatriated back home. This is not included in the paragliding insurance. Travel assistance insurance with Europ-Assistance starts at €18.

    Cancellation Insurance

    Highly Recommended. If you need to cancel the training, for any reason (health reasons, major life events, etc.), you can easily reclaim your registration fee from the insurance company in the event of cancellation on your part. The best formula can be found at Europ-Assistance and can be combined with the above travel assistance.
    Cancellation insurance with Europ-Assistance starts at €15.

Out of season we go to where it is good to fly. We are not tied to a location and check in advance where the weather is good and go there. Depending on the weather, we will stay either at a campsite or an AirBnB. Flexibility in function of flying, it can’t get any better, can it?
