Can I learn this?

Paragliding is a flying sport that can be learned relatively quickly and easily by anyone from the age of 14. You don't need to have a lot of physical strength to learn the sport nor is any prior knowledge required. If you have some experience in kiting, kite surfing, sailing, or other wind-related sports, this will certainly help though!

The equipment you receive within the course is tailored to your weight and experience. It does not matter whether you weigh 45kg or 110kg, and whether you already have experience or are a complete beginner. We make sure you get the right set, so that you learn how to fly as quickly and as safely as possible.

After our many years of teaching experience, we are convinced that anyone can learn, young or old. Our youngest student is 14 years old and our oldest over 70! So you can learn it too !!

It is often difficult for our students to comprehend that after a short preliminary training they suddenly fly 'solo' at an altitude of 500 meters, as if it were the most normal thing to do. And the nice thing about paragliding is that you never stop learning... It truly offers you a lifelong learning path.

We have a minimum age of 16 for our mountain courses, in the Netherlands this is 14 years.

If, for whatever reason, you still have doubts whether this sport is for you, please contact us or visit our training room in Wijk bij Duurstede so you can ask us all your questions. We are always happy to meet new potential pilots!
