Stage 1:

Trainees undergo 15 flights covering theoretical foundations and altitude soaring flight. Successful completion of a written exam is mandatory. Trainees are expected to autonomously conduct pre-flight preparations and landing plans under supervision.

Stage 2:

Advancing from the first stage, trainees will cover on 15 more flights exploring a diverse range of skills including reverse launch practice, basic sail flight, ear closing maneuver, 360° turns, and speed system utilization.

Stage 3:

In the final stage, trainees undertake 10 more flights focusing on advanced techniques such as spot landing approaches, soaring flight, top landing proficiency which means the trainee will land on thop of the mountain takeoff site, and beginner thermalling techniques.

Additionally, practical flight training includes 50 flights of practical flight training, basic emergency drills, and a minimum of 12 hours of flight time, with specific requirements for sail flight and thermal flight. Before and after each flight, one-on-one briefing and debriefing sessions are conducted with the students.

Equipment and Logistics:

Items provided by the training program include wing, harness, reserve, helmet, radio, SIV boat, and life jacket. Trainees are responsible for providing their own accommodation, meals, transportation, logistics, mountain entrance fees, and transportation for SIV training.
