Paragliding: Learn to Fly is a comprehensive tutorial for all beginner and intermediate paraglider pilots.
Using 3D animation and video sequencing the film brings to life many of the hard-to-visualise concepts which are so important for us to understand: airflow around hills and mountains, turbulence and convergence, dynamic and thermic lift, plus aerodynamics like lift and drag, speed to fly and so on.
Learn to Fly also focusses on equipment preparation, pro tips to help you perfect your forward and reverse launching and the importance of flight planning.
A bonus section includes an interview with Ozone test pilot Russell Ogden. Russell talks through the wing design process from concept to testing, and gives some pointers to beginners and intermediates on buying your first glider, dealing with fear and so on.
