Hang gliding and tandem paragliding training courses

Hang gliding remains the flyingest flying man can do!
At the helm of the school is National Senior Instructor, Johan AndersonThe only hang gliding AND paragliding Instructor in the country!

Wild2Fly hang-gliding and paragliding school consistently qualifies their students with more flights and hours than any other school in the country. This happens because of our training philosophy – equipping students for a rewarding flying career (We are not interested in getting you out of the school as soon as you have the minimum criteria to make place for the new). No. We pride ourselves in going that extra mile to get you that extra experience and making you a better pilot, even if it costs us time and money. Chat to any of our students and even our peers and they will vouch without reservation of our solid training foundations.

So join us because we are madly, passionately wanting to share this awesome thing we do with you! :)) And ofcourse we are offering some amazing but limited specials. Crazy Specials! Call us and find out!

Wild2fly is the only school that offers both hang gliding and paragliding training. This unique advantage brings a broader spectrum of insight into our training philosophies to ultimate benefit you – the student pilot.

(We train between Wilderness, Sedgefield and Knysna catering for local pilots from the greater Mosselbay, Oudshoorn, Knysna, to Plettenbergbay areas.)
Our courses start on the first weekend of every month excep January where we start on the second weekend. But if you are really stuck into not being able to make those dates but want only Wild2Fly trianing then chat to us. :) We always try our best to make a plan.  :))

So what is the difference between hang gliding and paragliding? In a nutshell, hang gliding performs more like a soaring bird than any other aircraft - and the method of control - weight shift, is simple and instinctive. The prone flying position gives you the most natural and bird- like experience available. It is the closest man has ever come to experiencing flight like the birds. Having said that, Paragliding on the other hand beats hang gliding hands down from a ease and convenience point of view - that is why paragliding is so popular. Its a wing in a bag that you can throw into the boot of your car and travel just about everywhere. Wild2Fly is in the unique position, with the instructor experience to give you a taster of both.

Doing a Hang gliding or Paragliding course with Wild2Fly is a unique experience.

The location of the school is idyllic - Wilderness on the Cape Garden Route is one of the most popular flying tourist destinations in the country. Blessed with an abundance of sites, most of which are within 10-20 minutes drive, make Wild2Fly unique.

Our courses are tailor made for your enjoyment and during your training we ensure that a holiday atmosphere prevails. Our basic daily routine starts off with a theory lecture, which is normally around 1 hour long. After this we load flying gear and proceed to the training slope available for the day. These coastal dunes provide forgiving slopes for learning and the summer dependable sea breezes, easy wind conditions that ease your learning to fly. We spend around 2-4 hours on the dunes, all dependent upon your eagerness (and fitness! ;) before returning for a late lunch (or early supper!) depending upon our days activities. At this stage you will be given free time – time to relax or go to town or enjoy the wonderful variety of Wilderness activities. Later on during the course we will fly for most of the day but our daily routine is flexible. For the most part we keep it balanced – flying and relaxing, to ensure you have the most accelerated and effective learning experience. Doing too much is most often counterproductive so we urge you to trust your Instructor who has been doing this for most of his life! :)
