​​​​​​​​9 day licence course $2299.00

+ 2 free days & $400 NEW glider discount

All modern training equipment supplied

This is by far the best option if you are looking for the fastest and most cost effective way of getting your PG2 licence. It's our tried and proven way of teaching people to fly solo quickly with confidence. We only teach in small groups so that we can provide a more comprehensive and individual training experience (we can still can cater for larger groups with prior negotiation). The course usually runs from Saturday until the following Sunday unless you want to request custom dates which is totally fine.

We provide an extra 2 days free for any students who do not satisfy the PG2 requirements after the 9 day course is completed, but beyond that, if students still do not complete the PG2 requirements, they will be charged at a negotiated day rate until their training is completed. Any practical days that are lost due to poor weather are simply credited and can be completed at a later date. We also include a $400.00 discount on any NEW Skywalk EN-A glider purchase for all of our 9 day licence course participants.

 

To receive your PG2 licence you must first complete 30 high flights, including 3 soaring flights and demonstrate consistently all the basic skills needed to fly without an instructor directly supervising you.

Depending on weather conditions and fatigue, every day is spent focused on practical training with approximately 10 hours of classroom theory spread throughout the week.

We certainly can't absolutely guarantee your PG2 licence in a week. If the weather is good, most students will graduate, but of course some don't. There can sometimes be confidence or fitness issues and everyone progresses at their own pace not ours. Our instructors will never push anyone out of their comfort zone and will also hold back any overconfident students if they exhibit poor technique or complacency.

Our price includes all equipment and GST but does not include the SAFA mandatory student membership fee ($44.00 valid for 12 months or until PG2 training is completed) and the Canungra Hang Gliding Club student fee ($20 covers all training). Age and weight limits apply. See bookings.

Solo training $295.00 per day

This is a full day of training the same as you would experience during any full licence course. You'll start in the classroom with a short briefing and be kitted out with the correct size paraglider, harness and helmet with the rest of the day spent "hands on" learning how to launch and glide solo from small training hills in the area. You can continue on towards your PG2 licence at the single day rate and also string together multiple days as long as places are available. We teach 7 days a week, weather permitting.

 

We have bonus offer included that is, if you book a 9 day licence course within 2 months of completing a single day or a tandem flight we'll remove that price from our licence course (the course can start after 2 months).

 

This is a popular extreme adventure activity for a group of friends, corporate groups or a special Birthday gift.

Our price includes all equipment and GST but does not include the SAFA mandatory student membership fee ($44.00 valid for 12 months or until PG2 training is completed). Weight and age limits apply. See bookings.

Solo Intro and Tandem High Glide $395.00

Join us for a solo introduction day with the added bonus of a tandem high glide with one of our experienced instructors from one of our 1800ft mountain launches.

You'll start in the classroom with an short theory presentation and then hop in our paragliding simulator to practice using the controls.

Depending on the weather conditions at the time we'll then either head straight up to one of our high mountain launches for an exciting tandem high glide or out to one of our training areas for some hands on solo training and do the tandem later in the day.

Video: A typical 3rd day of training on one of our 9 day Licence Courses.

This group of students had progressed to the very top of the training hills by the end of the second day and are now preparing for their first high solo glides from our high mountain sites. After the morning session and some classroom theory everyone got to launch from an 1800ft mountain solo while under direct radio supervision by the Paratech Instructors.
