FlySpain have over ten years experience of coaching SIV both in Spain, Italy and Turkey.
Now from our full-time base here in Spain we can offer a bespoke paramotor experience to pilots who might not have had the opportunity to practise some of the most basic to the more dynamic pilot skills needed to build confidence
Tailoring courses to pilots' needs - SIV Club
Not only do our courses comprise pilots making their first pilotage courses, we also offer more advanced manoeuvres like stalls and spins for more experienced pilots, so if you've done a pilotage or SIV course elsewhere and want to up the billing just ask. Tailoring courses to pilots needs is crucial for pilot progress
Your regular Xc pilot almost never ponders stalling a glider, we concentrate on keeping them in one piece and going around in circles but deflations in thermic air can happen so preparation is everything! See one of our videos for some idea
So.... Pilotage, a course aimed at boosting your confidence not wrecking it!
For many years we've realised that if you have come into flying purely through paramotoring then you can naturally miss out on the chat feedback you get around fliers whose daily thermic flying includes the anecdotal chat about rough air and deflations. Although many paramotor pilots intially begin their flying at the quieter times of day they soon want to push their window of flying without the skill set of prior knowledge of what to do with thermic or more turbulent air. Our courses are aimed at improving this important skill set.

One last thing...the small print!
You'll be potentially using our paramotors at the end of the week to go flying with, it's a skills course, we expect you to be able to take off and land without pranging a prop...hence we will ask you to cover expenses if you prang prop or cage!
