Paragliding Courses

BEGINNER COURSES 2005-2006

Paragliding is the most pure form of flying. By using the elements and rising currents of warm air, we can stay aloft for many hours and travel many miles. This simple aircraft fits easily into a rucksack and weighs around 10kg.

In Nepal the flying is made more special by the continuous presence of numerous species of eagle, vulture, falcon, hawk and kite. They all love to join us, equally fascinated by us as we are by them. Often flying within feet of the glider!

Sunrise Paragliding offers 3 stages to becoming a pilot. We follow the Para-Pro syllabus; this is set out by the Federation Aeronautique International (FAI) the controlling body for all airsports worldwide. All our instructors are highly experienced and form the backbone of a highly professional team.

The license we issue is authorised by the Federation Aeronautique Internationale (FAI). This is the controlling body for airsports worldwide. The IPPI card (International Pilot Proficiency Identification) is recognised in every country that has an airsport association

During all our courses you will be under instruction using 2 way radios. Due to the exceptional weather during the season in Nepal, we can complete the tasks needed to gain your license far quicker than in less predictable climates.

THERMALLING COURSE

The mild and super-consistent weather of the Pokhara valley provide excellent conditions for all levels of pilot. From beginner through to XC hounds, Nepal has it all.

Often the most crucial part of any pilots training is immediately after they have qualified and have to fly outside of the school environment. This can seem daunting especially as the new pilot often has to deal with unfamiliar conditions, such as thermals. A lot of pilots are not trained in school to fly in thermic conditions and need extra instruction.

Sunrise offers this course for pilots looking to improve the necessary skills and decisions that give us the best chance of soaring away from the familiar environment of the ridge to the freedom of the open skies.

Thermalling Clinic

Course : 3 days

All transport and radios provided.

Aim
This course is an introduction to thermal flying with the objective of improving the pilot’s knowledge and skills needed to make the most of the lift on any given day

Day 01

  • Meet in the office for equipment and radio check.
  • After assessing the conditions we head out to the days flying site.
  • Theory lesson on the hill in understanding thermal sources, triggers and dynamics. This involves watching lots of birds of prey!
  • Briefing for the days flying.
  • The instructor will guide you with 2-way radio from the hill in finding, catching and staying in thermals.
  • Depending on how long your flight is we try for 2 flights a day.

Day 02
  • Meet in the office for equipment and radio check.
  • After assessing the conditions we head out to the days flying site.
  • Following on from the previous day we try and keep you in the air as long as possible. The longer you are up the more you are learning.

Day 03

  • We try and take you to a different site each day to improve you knowledge and assessment of varying conditions.
  • The last day of the course we try and get you to follow the instructor around the sky. We have found that it is a lot easier to get to cloud base with someone else in the thermal with you, talking you through the process.
  • At the end of each day is a debriefing session, where everyone can sit down and talk about the days flying.

CROSS COUNTRY COURSE

Cross-country Course
Course : 3 days

All transport and radios provided

Aim
This follows on from the thermalling course, as pilots master the skills of ridge soaring and turn their attention to thermal flying, the focus leads to cross country flight. The challenge and adventure of flying in unfamiliar surroundings is unbeatable. However, flying in the mountains requires a more advanced flying technique. This 3 day course aims to give an introduction to mountain flying with the objective of looking at the necessary skills and decisions that give us the best chance of thermalling away from the familiar environment of the ridge to the freedom of the open skies.

Each day will follow a similar pattern. The morning briefing is designed to give as much information to the pilot as possible to put them in the right frame of mind for XC flying. Conditons, thermal strength, xc route, retrieve etc.

Flying XC is just a case of linking 2 thermals together, but it requires the symbolic cutting of ties from the hill. This course deals not only with the practice but also the mental side of XC flying.

Each day the instructor will launch first and wait in the house thermal for the students to catch up. Then it is follow my leader down the ridge and beyond. Radio guidance will help in your decision-making and you will be amazed at how quickly you progress.

The debriefing session each day is vital to improving the next day’s performance. The decisions you made, why and when etc all need to be discussed.

The Sarangkot ridge is a perfect location for this our XC course. 10Km long with many options and easy retrieves, it provides the ideal conditions and unforgettable views, so don’t forget the camera!

ACRO & SIV COURSE

This season we are extremely pleased to welcome Sebsatian Bourquin onto our team. Seb will be running a series of SIV and Acro courses in Pokhara this coming season.

Sebastian has been flying since 1987 and can rightly claim to be the father of all modern Acro. He started wagga long before pilots dreamed of Acro flying. As a test pilot for Edel, Nove, Mac Para and Paratech he invented Big Ears and B-line Stall.

His experience is unmatched and we are confident that his courses will be a lasting success.

As before we will be dividing the SIV and Acro into 2 separate courses. Please contact us for details and dates.
