Day 4: By the fourth day you will be flying from Tierra Negra to Las Gonzales, where the altitude difference from top to bottom is 900 meters.

Day 5:Other activities,hiking,mountain biking.

The course includes a didactic tandem flight from Tierra Negra with your instructor before you will be ready to do your first big flight alone. In the following days you will fly 3 big solo flights.

Our school provides all the equipment for training:

glider, harness, safety helmet, and radio. You will personally need walking boots, long sleeved shirt, trousers, sunblock, mosquito repellent and water.Under constant supervision of two instructors, where safety at this early stage is very important, the new pilot is in radio control contact at all times.
