SIV in the 1st World - Lake Annecy, France
18 - 24 May 2013 & 25 - 31 May 2013
This course is personally tailored specifically to ensure that whatever level pilot you are now, you'll remain in one piece to become an old pilot! As well as being educational, SIV is great fun... The initial trepidation at collapsing your perfectly functional glider is rapidly replaced by a huge grin as you learn how safe your wing is and just how easy it is to pilot out of the most unusual attitudes :)

Dear pilot colleagues!
We invite you to take part in the second Foot or Flybubble challenge!
Using only your feet or your wing, link the selected launch sites in the closed circuit. Any day in May or June counts, between sunrise and sunset. The best attempt wins (longest then fastest around the course).

In 2013 we'll yet again be offering some very special paragliding trips to one of the best flying areas of Southern Spain. Paragliding during the day, enjoying a cold beer (or a glass of Rioja) with accompanying Tapas in the evening - what more could you ask for?! :-)
These trips aren't for students; they're for eager paraglider pilots looking to hone their all-round flying, thermalling and XC skills whilst getting maximum AIRTIME. Get full retrieve services, fly as much and far as you can, and have a great holiday in a world-class flying region. Expand your flight horizons!
