SIV stands for ‘Simulated Incident in Flight’ – as the saying goes, plan for the worst and hope for the best. This clinic helps give pilots old and new greater awareness of their wing and how to handle a variety of events that may occur when flying. SIV Clinics increase a pilot’s confidence and open a new dimension of flying a paraglider.

Date: June 9th -10th, 2018
Location: Whitetail Lake, BC
Instructors: Max Fanderl & Patric Stettler

This unique opportunity to learn the dynamics and limits of your wing will be held at the beautiful private flying site of Whitetail Lake in BC. This site offers a generous amount of height to practice maneuvers over the safety of water. There will be two instructors and a safety boat onsite.

Supervised flights and P2 maneuvers

This course is for P1 pilots wanting to do some of their 25 supervised flights, and includes theory in risk management  and preparation for the P2 exam. There will be an opportunity to challenge your P2 exam upon completion of the required flights.

  • Big ears
