For many new pilots, going from flying together with a paragliding school to solo flying can be daunting and your progress as a pilot can be slow. The Sparrows and Hawks mentorship initiatives are there to ensure that you can become a capable, confident, full-fledged pilot.

By joining one of our mentorship programs you can take your flying ability to greater heights by:

  • Expanding your theoretical knowledge
  • Improving your practical ability.
  • Flying with other pilots in the paragliding community

Ultimately, we want you to be confident in your flying ability and have more fun in the air. We love expanding the local paragliding community, so you don’t need to have been a Birdmen Paragliding Academy student to be welcome in our flock.

Sparrows

During our Sparrows mentorship programme, you are encouraged to stretch your wings under the watchful eagle-eyes of our instructors. You will get the chance to learn more about the local micro-meteorology. Additionally, you will gain airtime by flying thermic, dynamic, and coastal conditions. Lastly, we will slowly guide you through our small-distance-routes which will prepare you to fly cross country

Hawks

Our Hawks programme will familiarise you with the elements required if you want to work towards your Sports Rating. We encourage you as a senior pilot to give site briefings, fly cross country, and perform advanced manoeuvres.
