Description

Acro paragliding is all about good decision making. In acro our first priority is to put ourselves in the best possible situation to allow time for a recovery from a mistake or if we were to ever need our emergency systems. This allows acro to become a great way to explore advanced wing control. At Elevate we believe in acro coaching, by providing you with the tools you need in the SIV environment. We can graduate SIV and move on to a faster paced training environment. Acro coaching allows you to consolidate your knowledge and skills over many flights. Looking at where you are and what your goals are, a training plan will be laid out for you. An especially designed knee mounted GoPro will be provided, which allows us to individually analyse your performance and look for areas we can improve on. Taking you from the SIV style of teaching of 9 runs per week to 30 (weather permitting) gives you a chance to really build your skills and learn how to identify your own mistakes, so you can continue to improve when you leave the course. Radio contact is limited in acro coaching, therefore we use spin to backfly, 360 spin with a positive exit as a pre requisite of the course. If you’re not comfortable executing this on the first day with no instruction, then come and join us for the SIV style course and we will get you there! #acroisnotacrime
