SKU: SIV-001 Category:


SIV is your next building block once you are out of a school. The number of hours you need before embarking on an SIV course is a myth, as everything is tailored to you as a pilot. As pilots we fly in an active environment, Elevate is here to help prepare you for that mentally and physically, giving you the tools and confidence you need to stay safe in the air. We will help you to think clearly in stressful situations, to enable you to make the right decisions. The ultimate goal is to give you the skills and knowledge to avoid these situations altogether. Whatever your goals are, be it to just enjoy some weekend ridge soaring, smash your xc goals or venture into advanced wing control such as acro, we are here to help you do it safely and keep doing it for a long time to come. #elevateyourself

  1. Graham Bennett

    Taking myself for a second SIV session was simple, after so many years paragliding,(17) It’s far easier to see better results, from different instructors using different methods.
    I’m so glad I opted for elevate. And got outstanding results.
    This guy is different from the average. Far better than some on many levels,
    Which for me came out in my performance.
    For this I am truly grateful. And feel I had value for money.
