with Air Adventure
Through many years of free flight training Air Adventure instructors know that teaching and coaching in small groups, with the emphasis on the needs of the individual, is the safest and most rewarding way to learn to fly – for both pupil and instructor.

The key to successful coaching lies in adapting to the needs of the individual. Some people will need a short period of intense coaching, some a more relaxed longer period, while others may need just a few choice words. The level and nature of coaching varies depending on the character of the individual pilot, their flying experience, their life experiences and the amount of time they can devote to paragliding.
Most clubs have coaches who help introduce newly qualified members to the club and help with advice about flying, conditions and site assessment etc. They do a great job and the whole club system would fall apart without them. However, they cannot be everywhere and you have to actively seek them out - or just fluff a few launches and they will seek you out! On busy days and most weekends the red ribbon to club coach ratio can be such that it is not always possible to get the attention of a club coach when you need it or for as long as you need it and of course they want to fly as well.

So this is where Air Adventure comes in - we can both complement and supplement the local club coaching system. We will introduce you to the various SHGC sites and SHGC Club Coaches, you can call us in advance to check that the flying conditions are suitable for you and during those early soaring flights when you should be striving to perfect your basic soaring and thermaling skills, we can help optimize conditions with the use of radios. Being in radio contact with an experienced instructor can give peace of mind on those busy soaring days and make the difference between an enjoyable soaring flight and a two minute stressful top to bottom. Add to this a thorough pre & post-flight briefing and Air Adventure can help to make your transition from School to Club as smooth, safe, efficient and enjoyable as possible.
Before long you will be familiar with the club sites, the club coaches and an increasing number of your fellow club members. You will become more confident with your basic flying skills and judgment with regard to site assessment and weather conditions and become a safer more independent flyer well on your way to achieving your ‘Pilot rating’.
