Pilot Development Clinic for Paragliding

I would like to offer free Paragliding tuition on the first Saturday of every month. This is to encourage certified paragliding pilots to consolidate and further their piloting skills. Each course topic will consist of practical training techniques and theory. The first topic of this clinic will be Advanced Ground Handling Techniques, lasting for a duration of approximately 1 hour. Confirmation of the place and time will be sent by email. Pilots can contact me at Adventure Plus Paragliding by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots.
