BEGINNER'S COURSE

Our Beginner Course is approximately 40 hours comprised of; six or seven 2-4 hour flight training sessions done early of late in the day when the winds are light and smooth and, a ground school of five theory lectures, most of which are available on DVD.

The course includes:
- the text
- notebooks
- glider rentals
- harnesses
- helmets
- instruction.

You will qualify for a Novice theory rating upon passing the quiz and will be well on your way to Novice practical as well.

The flight training can be booked 7 days a week from mid April ‘til late November and occasional weekends in the winter. We progress gradually, according to individual ability and aptitude, from short flights a foot or two in the air to long tows to about 500 feet altitude. Our students get more airtime in a single flight near the end of the course now than we used to get in out entire beginner course when we used to teach on hills.

Following the typical graduation flight you release, box the field and land back at the end from which you launched. We can certify you for Canadian or US ratings and our programs are recognized world wide as state of the art.

We have students come from all over the world because they know they can finish the Beginner (and sometimes Novice) Course in a week depending on the weather. Using the stationary winch technique we can accommodate any wind direction.

Flying is not a test of skill or endurance but more a lesson in relaxation and concentration.

We've found that the most natural students are: wind surfers, cyclists or motorcyclists, sailors, people that have thought about it for a long time and women (naturally more relaxed:)

This course does not include any tandem flights but we may substitute tandems for regular flying if conditions are not favourable for student flying. Tandem flights can also be taken at anytime to compliment your regular instruction at a reduced rate.
