Day one consists of ground school and an introduction to principles of flight, the equipment and basic meteorology. Practical training consists of launching- and landing techniques and up to 3 hours of ground handling. Day two and three includes up to five instructional tandem flights and your first solo flights.


We provide you with a paragliding harness, wing and helmet and will expect you to use it as instructed. Paragliding equipment requires careful use and can be dangerous. Our focus is to showcase the best paragliding has to offer and the only way to do so is to do it safely and responsibly.


All our staff are passionate about what they do and receive continuous training to ensure we stay at the leading edge of our industry. Winelands Paragliding is a paragliding as well as powered paragliding school registered with the South African Hang gliding and Paragliding Association (SAHPA) and the South African Civil Aviation Authority (SACAA).
