High Flight Training

A week training… You’re going to fly!

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

€ 600, the use of all required material (wing, seat harness, reserve, helmet, radio) is included. € 510 for pilots who fly with a wing bought from the Paraglidingshop.

Insurance : 25 Euro (valid for the rest of the calendar year; you probably have already paid for it at the training slopes)

Ministage in the Vosges

This training is an abbreviated version of a high flights training. About 400 kilometers from Brussels are the Vosges, a beautiful region that allows us to do a short training in a weekend or an extended weekend. The focus is entirely on making a number of high flights, so there are no theory lessons here.

There is possibility to stay in a cozy chalet, or if the weather permits to camp. The departure is scheduled for Friday evening. It’s just under 5 hours away, so if you leave around 6 p.m., you’ll arrive around 11 p.m. The participants agree among themselves who can possibly ride with whom.

We try to fly the whole Saturday and Sunday until about 16 hours. In good conditions this means 4 large flights. The weather in the Vosges is less predictable, so keep in mind that cancellation is possible up to a few days before departure.

Price

€ 220 for a 2-day, € 315 for a 3-day ministage. The use of all required material (wing, seat harness, helmet, radio) is included. Participants who fly with a wing bought from the paraglidingshop pay €  190 for a 2-day, € 270 for a 3-day ministage.

Insurance: € 25 (valid for one year; you probably have already paid for it at the training slopes)
