overview of aerodynamics, appropriate weather conditions and safety issues when flying a

paraglider. This course is insufficient to prepare The Student for passing on his own. To do that, one

must take a complete beginner's course, Parapro 2 or equivalent, 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).
