The SuperClinic is a training course designed around the group of paragliding students applying. The goal is to improve piloting skills to the point participants are more confident in their thermalling and cross country flying skills such that they can confidently compete in race to goal competitions.
Student to Instructor ratio will be a maximum of 10 to 1. Pilots must apply and then proceed to payment AFTER they have been emailed and acceptance by the instructors. Registrations will be capped at 20 pilots.
Kari Castle and Ken Hudonjorgensen are returning as SuperClinic instructors. They will give you the information; how you apply it is determined by your skill and clarity.
This is world class training at a world class site with world class instruction.
