Option 2: Discovery Solo (http://www.iparaglide.com/discovery-solo-paragliding/), an evening theory class (Wed July 2) and full weekend of practice, dawn to dusk (Sat & Sun July 5-6).

The Slope Soaring is a half-day course designed to teach the skills of launching, flying and landing a paraglider over a small hill. The Solo Discovery course is a full-weekend curriculum designed to teach the skills required to fly as the pilot in command during a paragliding high mountain flight. The theory session includes an introduction to basic principles of paragliding aerodynamics.

The school will supply all the required equipment: paraglider, paragliding harness, paragliding reserve parachute, helmet and radio. You need to wear sturdy footwear with good ankle support. 

You will be emailed by the trip organizer to work out registration details.
