Hi future pilots!

This event is also open for people which already attended a first paragliding day!

Activity: You will be given a paraglider and practice the take off. As you gain experience and confidence, you will start from higher ground. If this is at least your second day, you may use a better glider.

More details: We'll meet in Zurich HB at 8:10, We will take the S5 @ 8:25 leaving from platform 23/24. We will change in Rapperswil and will arrive at Uznach station at 9.14 where we will be picked by the skycenter team. Please buy the train ticket before we meet. For those who would like to drive, kindly be at Uznach train station before 9.15. The course will finish at 15:00, after that we can start tandem flights, 2-3 people at a time. The rest can enjoy a picnic in the area. For people in Basel, the train of 7:07 to Zürich should be right on time.

Hiking Group Fee: - Introductory course: 80 CHF instead of 100 (full price) - Tandem flight: 100 CHF instead of 150 (full price). This price can be deducted from paragliding school course if you fly further.

Equipment: - a bottle of water - something to snack - comfortable or outdoor clothes, not your best jeans ;)

- there is a kiosk at Uznach train station, if you need water/sandwiches/cafe...

As requested by the Skycenter team, Max15 people can participate in the course and only 12 can make a tandem flight.

Skycenter web site: (in German). It should be a great fun, so don't miss the chance. If you have any questions don't hesitate to call me @[masked]
