Send application

Fly paragliding over fantastic Setesdal! Take a parachute course at Voss! Join summit tours, river paddling, climbing and via ferrata. Become a better skier and learn body flying in the wind tunnel.

On Paragliding - Extreme Sport, you get to explore your limits while learning to become good and safe in aerial sports. We go most in-depth on paragliding, and in skydiving you will learn to jump in free fall on your own! During the year, we will explore the air in several ways. You will learn to fly your body in a wind tunnel and you will have the opportunity to test ride a small plane. Together with Bygland Luftsportklubb, we organize paraglider pull-ups by boat. When you are ready for it, you can be pulled up to heights where you can see far into the expanses. This is a safe and exciting way to fly a lot. In our area we also have many nice mountains to fly from, and we will have many trips with flying, play and fun. Friendships are built quickly when we share great experiences together, and a small class such as ours bonds extra closely together. During the year, we will share experiences and stories, we will share tents and storm kitchens, and we will share the joy of mastering the elements of nature. You will learn a lot about the weather and we will gladly go on a road trip to find fly spots. We will also go on a study trip abroad. Trip planning is important in aerial sports, so we will make the study trip together. Maybe there will be paragliding in Spain? Mental training and physical activity are part of the line subject, and through your own initiative and commitment, you can call yourself a parachutist and independent paraglider pilot during the year!
