Progression through the Courses:
Many people start with the Taster Day to check that Paragliding is for them before committing to the Elementary Pilot Course (EP). If at the end of your Taster Day you want to continue training (lots of people do!) you can then pay the balance of the EP course. Your Taster, Voucher or Course fees are each valid for a year. Progress is fastest when you can take your training days as close together as possible. If you exceed the year validity or the maximum number of days you can continue your tuition by paying the daily rate of £140 for EP and £120 for CP.
Your first day
The evening before your first day (or if you've not been out for a while) it is a good idea to give us a call to see how the forecast is looking. If the weather is not looking good you can book some further dates. Often we will ask you to call again around 8.00 - 8.15am on the day to check it is still good and when and where we will fly. Have a look at the where we fly page to get maps to our main training sites.
The weather conditions need to be just right for safe paragliding - fairly light winds and dry conditions - so please don't be too surprised if we have to cancel. Usually we start the day's training at ten or eleven o'clock though sometimes an earlier or later start can make sense to fit the forecast.
EP and CP combi ~ £1,150 If you commit to both courses at the start then you can save £75
Couples deal ~ £40 off for one of you if you book your Taster day at the same time as your husband/wife, boyfriend/girlfriend or partner
Group Taster deal ~ £10 off for subsequent participants
Communications - the Telegram App
To start with please get in touch with us by phone, text, or email. When you sign up for the Elementary and Club pilot courses please download the Telegram app. This is a messaging app that makes it easy to manage groups and let you know when it is looking flyable and what the day's arrangements are etc. Also Telegram is now used by most paragliding clubs so this will help you in your transition to the club environment after graduating from Flying Frenzy! It can be used on phones and computers. Use this link to get the version/s you need; https://telegram.org/. When you have joined I will add you to the appropriate group.
