Intro: $295 * + membership fees
This course is designed to give you a taste of the sport of paragliding. You will learn about the equipment, ground handling techniques, basic ground school and weather. You may even take your first solo flight! The goal of this course is to get your feet off the ground and experience the joy of flying. If you’re ready to commit to a full certification course, the introductory course fee will be credited towards the P1/P2 course.
Beginner/Novice Certification Course (P1/P2): $1795.00 ** + membership fees
Everything you need to become a USHPA certified P2 pilot. You will progress through all the required ground school and flight training required to prepare you to fly on your own and without instructor supervision. The training process will start the same as the Introductory Course then go beyond to develop your flying skills and knowledge. It will include comprehensive ground school on paragliding flight, weather, equipment, risk management, and other related topics. You will receive a reference book, a study manual, and a pilot log book. The course can take between 2-6 weeks depending on the student. We have found that the more consistently the student practices with us, the faster he/she will grasp the material.
*Fees collected for Intro course may be applied to P-1/P-2 certification course.
** $500.00 of P2 course fee may be applied towards purchase of a new paraglider kit when purchased through Flying Lizard Paragliding.
Reserve Repacks : $45.00
SIV Clinics : $750
SIV is a French acronym for Simulated Incidents in Flight. Our calm demeanor over the radio helps you feel confident inducing wing collapses and other simulated events. After a few days with us, you’ll look forward to pushing your wing and your abilities to their limits. Most pilots would agree that attending an SIV clinic should be a mandatory part of obtaining a P-3 rating. Regardless, an SIV clinic gives pilots a new awareness of their wing and how to handle unforeseen events while flying in the real world. For a first-timer, participating in an SIV clinic will certainly increase a pilot’s confidence and skill. Some other instructors we work with include Brad Gunnuscio (sivclinic.com) and Ryan Grizzell (acrotow.com).
Maneuvers conducted at our maneuvers clinic may include the following:
- Asymmetric Tucks
- Full Frontal Tucks
- Horse Shoe
- Full Stalls
- Wingovers and Acro
