Things to do to gear up to the season…

We have entered another new paragliding season here in the Alps. We started our first Flyeo SIV courses on the 31st of March and can’t wait to see our students progression this year. If you’re interested in coming on an SIV course click here for more information.

So when was the last time you got your wing out of its bag? Was it last year per chance? Now is the time to rectify that, get it out and do a visual check on the wing, lines and harness for damage. You could get it trimmed to make sure that the lines haven’t shrunk and you are flying at the correct speed.

Do a hang test on your harness and checking everything is still adjusted to your body and flying position.

When did you last have your reserve packed? Now is the time to consider getting this done. (Flyeo offer this service from 45 euros).

A great way to ease yourself back into flying again is going to ground handle, get to know that wing again and how it reacts. If you find yourself enjoying this, or feel like you need more advanced pointer’s we have a new course on ground handling skills starting at Dune Du Pyla this year.  So just to recap on everything we have gone though….

  • Visual check of wing, lines and harness.
  • Get your glider trimmed.
  • Hang test on your harness, to re-adjust it.
  • Get your reserve professionally repacked.
  • Go out and do some ground handling.
  • Do a pilotage or SIV course.

We are looking forward to what this season will hold and have some great courses and trips lined up in France and abroad, have a look at our list below and click on them if you want more information.
