Day Tour / Day Course Description
The Day Tour / Day Course and Tandem Paragliding Flight is a paragliding introductory course designed to give the student an overview of handling and using a paraglider, a high level overview of aerodynamics, appropriate weather conditions and safety issues when flying a paraglider. This course is insufficient to prepare The Student for flying on his own. In order to do that, one must take a full beginner's course, Parapro 2 or the equivalent thereof, conducted by a certified paragliding flight school. The instructors of Flybypara are all rated by SHV-FAM-BHPA. SHV is a certified ultralight Swiss federation and The International Airsports Federation (FAI).
