4 Steps to Pure Flight
Just follow these four simple steps, and you’ll soon be enjoying the thrill of pure flying:
- Call a local school and book in for an ‘Experience Flight’. This tandem Hang Glider, Paraglider or Microlight flight will last around 10 to 20 minutes and give you a taster of the pure flight thrill.
- Once you're hooked, you can sign up for a course at a HGFA approved school. Those wishing to gain their license can do a full course, while others may just try a 2 day introductory course, which is often the first part of a full course. Courses start with learning about the equipment set up and ground handling. Then come initial flights which are close to the ground with an instructor by your side.
- On successful completion of a full course, you will become an HGFA licensed pilot (with restrictions).
- Join the HFGA as a full member and sign up to a local club to really experience the thrill of pure flight and the camaraderie of the sport.
