The sport of paragliding offers the chance to realize man's oldest dream and it is a beautiful sport that most people can learn. Bucaramanga, in Colombia, is the perfect place to learn everything about paragliding in a short period of time with qualified instructors and amazing flying sites.
Our goal is to provide all students with the skills and knowledge necessary to practice the art of paragliding to its fullest, and with the utmost concern for safety and good judgment in flight. Few places in the world have as many varied sites and consistent conditions available in such close proximity as Bucaramanga. It is a virtual paragliding paradise.
Beginners level course
We offer complete instruction in the basics of free flight with consistent weather conditions. You will learn all kinds of flying and practice everything necessary to fly in any kind of site in the world. The course is 10 days of training and includes use of training equipment and dormitory (or upgrade to a room). Be sure to plan more time for other things like traveling or to continue flying after the course. Equipment can be purchased here for better prices than U.S. or Europe.

Accommodations, pool, & breakfast are included.
Tandem instruction and a logbook is also included as part of the course. Insurance is not included.
About the License
We cannot license you for your home country. We do offer the APPI (Association of Paragliding Pilots International) license for about 42euros, or the Colombian FAI license for an extra $200,000 COP. The application must be filled out correctly and takes 3-6 months to reach you by mail. An easier option is to keep a detailed logbook of your flights that you can present to an instructor from your country. He/she will want to see your logbook and witness you fly, take a test and fill out applications for your license.
