Learn Paragliding, Paramotoring or Speedflying in Christchurch with Parapro and let your dreams turn into reality.
We offer a wide range of flying courses:
We teach in small groups of 2-5 students and pride ourselves on tailoring our training programs to meet the individual needs of our student pilots. The paragliding and paramotoring courses are very flexible and this allows students to progress at their own pace, training at times which are convenient for them. Our courses follow the NZHGPA syllabus, and students will stay in the school until all NZHGPA requirements are met and the instructor is satisfied that the pilot is competent and knowledgeable enough to fly safely without supervision.
Parapro provides all the latest equipment during the training as part of the Paragliding course cost.
A great way to be introduced into free flight is to experience an Instructional Paragliding Tandem Flight in Christchurch with Parapro and learn the basics about paragliding with the instructor flying with you. If you are interested in flying solo on your first day then maybe a One Day Intro is for you. Tandem paragliding or going solo is a great way in introducing you to the sport of paragliding

Speedriding, the latest sport to hit our slopes. This new sport is not so extreme, it depends upon the way you do it.
Learn speedriding with Parapro. We suggest that you have a good level of skiing ability. You do not need to be an expert at paragliding but some experience is helpful as the wings used are very simple and easy to use. It’s recommended at least a PG1 paragliding course is taken prior to hitting the slopes and learning to speedride.
