SIV – Simulation Situation in Flight
& Freestyle pilot course

by Max Fanderl and Kris Chasse

S.I.V. – Simulating Situations in Flight gives the pilot a dynamic reaction to recover his/her paraglider to normal flight from unexpected situation, with an instructor’s guidance. The aim for that, preparing the pilot to react properly to an unexpected or dangerous situation while flying.

This course targeted for: 

  • Occasional pilots, beginners and ambitious amateur pilots.
  • Freestyle pilots.

The courses are held primarily over weekends or by specific requests in the spring and fall when the water levels are low.

For our SIV & Freestyle courses we are using a payout winch on a boat to tow every participant 600-800 meter above the lake.

Costs:

$120.00 SIV Ground School (only needed once per season)
$690.00 for a 2 day package
$385.00 for a 1 day Package

Ground school
Every pilot will need to go through our Intro and safety briefing once a season.
This includes the ground-school, equipment and harness check and creating a program for each participant.
These workshops will be held the evening before the actual SIV course.

S.I.V. – Simulating Situations in Flight
gives the pilot a dynamic reaction to recover his/her paraglider to normal flight from unexpected situation, with an instructor’s guidance. The aim for that, preparing the pilot to react properly to an unexpected or dangerous situation while flying.

The main purpose of this course is working on all the basic simulated situations you can have in flight and decent techniques.

Freestyle and Acro
Once mastered the SIV you can progress to learn the full stall and back-fly, which is the basic foundation for every Freestyle and Acro Pilot.
Once you can fly a controlled full stall and back-fly you will progress into Freestyle and Acro maneuvers.
We are supplying a manual and syllabus about the SIV and freestyle maneuvers.

Task Settings and Debrief
Every pilot, weather it is your first time or you have done the SIV and progressed to a Freestyle pilot, we will create a personalized plan in how to achieve everyone’s goals in the morning and after the flights we debrief the flights which were filmed during the day.

Including:
Radios and basic PFD’s.
