Learning to Fly

There are several professional Hang Gliding and Paragliding schools in Auckland and throughout NZ. See the NZHGPA web site for a list of Hang Gliding Schools and Paragliding schools. There are two Paragliding schools in Auckland, Wings and Waves, and Skywings. Unfortunately there is no Hang Gliding school, the closest one is in Raglan.
On offer are courses starting from a one day introductory course with all equipment supplied, through to a full licence course, which will include comprehensive theory and practical lessons. An alternative is to take a tandem flight, where you fly with an experienced instructor at the controls, and see what its all about, most schools also offer this service.
