Complete Novice (SP-2) Training Course

The Complete Novice (SP-2) Training Course is designed to help potential pilots learn the essential knowledge and practical skills need to fulfill the basic requirements for a Novice (SP-2) qualification in the PGTI and RASAT Paragliding Qualification Programs. We begin the course with ground school to learn about aerodynamics, flight aspects, weather, rules & regulations (international standards). The next lesson begins with canopy recognition/equipment familiarization & kiting instruction. When the student is comfortable with kiting and canopy management, we will then go to a local ‘practice hill’ to begin short, low, flights for a few days of lessons. The final few days are spent at a local mountain site with radio assistance from the instructor.  Depending upon the student’s commitment, and ability to kite often, a Novice (SP-2) or (RASAT PL-1) rating can be achieved in about 8-10 lessons (25 solo flights required).

Novice Capabilities available: Cliff Take-Off, Confined Landing Zone, High Altitude, Ridge Soaring, Turbulence, & 360 Turns.


Complete Novice (SP-2 / PGTI) or PL-1 (RASAT) Training Course Cost:

Thai baht 52,500 / US$ 1,500.
