| ABOUT WALLEND AIR SCHOOL OF PARAGLIDING|
Wallend-Air School of Paragliding, operated by Peter Wallenda, one of the founders and pioneers of paragliding in South Africa, along with Dutton Dames and Manu Wegmershaus, is totally focused on the training of safe, competent and confident pilots. Our instructors are SAHPA certified and focus on safety, skill and FUN !
Wallend-Air was founded in 1989 by Peter Wallenda and has been at the forefront of paragliding instruction, sales, repairs and anything to do with paragliding, ever since. Wallendair manufactured locally a very successful line of paragliders, harnesses and accessories. Due to stiff competition from overseas it has proved more viable to stick to selling equipment from two of the world leaders in paraglider design and production, Swing and Advance paragliders.
We offer a full range of courses from our two-day Introductory Class to full licence Certification Courses and Advanced Clinics on manoeuvres, thermalling and cross-country flying. Class sizes are kept small, usually no more than two new students per instructor. From the very start of your training, you learn, and perfect, not just your launch and landing, but your ground handling, thermal flying, and your understanding of micrclass="body" o-meteorology. All instruction is radio-supervised. By completing a Basic Licence course and purchasing a set of new or used gear from Wallend-Air, you will be able to fly with us to improve your skills even after you have completed the course. This instruction will help you progress through most of your higher level certifications. We want you to feel welcome to come back for refresher courses, there's always something new to learn! We offer the following classes and programs. To sign up for a class, ask questions about our programs, or to design a special or group program, please contact us.
