Our trainees are participants of the professional paragliding course which is conducted and approved by the Polish Civil Aviation Authority.
Step by step, in theory first, then in practice, we will teach you to takeoff, fly and land safely.
At the end of the course, you can pass an internal paragliding exam at our school in a friendly and stress-free environment.
Once the exam is passed, you will receive a certificate of completion of the training, so that you can be redirected to the official Polish state exam in order to receive an official Paragliding Qualification Certificate.
The total price for the course includes the whole paragliding equipment and the insurance for the duration of the training.
You do not need to own your personal paragliding stuff. We will provide you with the whole set.
