Description de l'activité
This is it! After the PG2 Full Pilot paragliding course in Queenstown, you will be able to proclaim yourself a paraglider!
Unfortunately, humans don't have wings, but with the PG2 Full Pilot paragliding certification, you'll have as much freedom as if you had wings. During this course, you will experience the power of free flight and float like a bird over the awe-inspiring landscapes of New Zealand's breathtaking Southern Lakes.
After completing this course, you'll become an independent pilot fully trained in the discipline. Also, your new skills and knowledge will allow you to relax and thus stay safe guaranteeing you can fly anywhere! The PG2 is the required license to fly unsupervised in NZ given out by the New Zealand Hang Gliding and Paragliding Association.
The PG2 usually takes 10 to 16 days, but the length of the course depends on your availability, the weather, and how well you progress!
