The Roc n' Vol method

Individualized Progression in Tandem (PIB): access to flight from the beginning of the training by practicing piloting with dual controls.
School slope: learning to pilot and handle the wing on the ground, in a fun and efficient way, by alternating the use of mini gliders and paragliders.

All the practical sessions of flight and ground flying are prepared in 1 or 2 hours in the classroom:
- Analysis: evaluation of the weather and aerological conditions of the day and definition of the objectives of progression.
- Mental and environment: presentation of the theme of piloting, acquisition of the fundamental theoretical knowledge and the associated vocabulary, preparation of the flight plan or school slope session.
- Technique: use of the piloting simulator (training of the precision and the efficiency of the gesture), of the video library...

Discovery Day

First steps of piloting on the ground: practice on a school slope for a duration of 2 to 3 hours. Theoretical course associated with the flight plan. Flight in a two-seater paraglider with dual controls for 45 minutes to 1 hour. This discovery day can be deducted from the initiation course.

Rate 250€.
