As its name already implies, Trainer was made not for flying, but for giving you an opportunity to practise ground handling, thus optimise your wing control. Due to its small surface compared to true paragliders, it enables you to practise under windy conditions, when its impossible to launch a paraglider.

Trainer is suitable for beginners, who want to improve their launch and take-off techniques. But it is suited for experienced pilots, too, who want to play around in the wind, as perfect wing control is the key to perfect take-offs and improves your safety as well as your enjoyment of paragliding.

NO, Trainer is made only for practising how to launch a wing and may only be used on the ground.

It is not suitable for flying!

For Trainer, just like for our "true" paragliding wings, we have chosen material, which offered an ideal compromise on weight reduction, durability and robustness. Every material we use is mady by leading manufacturers, whom we have been working and cooperating with in development issues for many years. A solid basis for high quality and for your long lasting enjoyment of practising with Trainer.

For a detailed chart on material used please look at the chapter „technical data“.
