One Day Lesson
This lesson gives you a full day to discover paragliding.
You will fly solo from our training hill your very first day. Your day
lesson begins with an equipment introduction and demonstration. Then we
let you begin Ground Handling with the aid of your instructor. We practice
inflating and controlling the wing on the ground, learning the launch
sequence, discussing the landing, and steering skills before introducing
the element of flight. The students confidence is usually growing at this
point, and can surprise themselves with how quickly they are progressing.
Once our Simulated launches look good we are ready
to put a radio on you and let you enjoy your first flight. All flights
are solo, radio-supervised and entirely self paced. Before launching instructor
and student recap the flight plan and landing procedure, and then you
take your first flight. After your landing the van will be down to pick
you up for another try. Your instructor supervises you on the radio during
your flights to the landing zone. As you progress we will introduce new
concepts to help you improve on your technique.
We will continue your training as long as the weather
conditions are manageable, and we both feel you are physically and mentally
fit to continue. We get some of the best flying at the end of the day
when you have really started to get a feel for things, and the conditions
get very mellow and smooth. This is one of the many reasons why you should
Choose Fly Tbilisi Paragliding School.
After a day of flying you may decide you wish to continue
with Novice Paragliding Training. We apply your one day fees toward the
novice package should you wish to sign up for our complete program.

length is variable, the average student should expect to spend 8 to 10
days with us to complete the logged skill requirements. Fly Tbilisi offers

Fly Tbilisi programs have become the standard in the
paragliding industry and the basis for the leading paragliding training
manual "The Art of Paragliding", and The Leading Paraglider
Training DVD Series in the industry. "The Art of Kiting" DVD
on ground handling techniques can give you the advantage of learning skills
and techniques that will have you kiting and launching like a seasoned
pilot even sooner. You can use this DVD both as an introduction before
your lessons begin, and also as a refresher after you finish your beginner
rating. This is a must see video for any serious pilot.
We set you up with new or used Paragliding Equipment,
depending on your budget. You will have the greatest success learning
to paraglide if you can immerse yourself in the course and then continue
flying or kiting regularly after completing your lessons. Private lessons
are also available and our fees are structured on an individual basis.
