The P2 Course consist of 35 flights that will be flown in a variety of conditions and different sites around the Anchorage and Matsu Region of Alaska. On average, it takes approximately 12-15 days of hands-on flight training and ground instruction to achieve your USHPA P2 rating. The certification is more about your proficiency and less about number of flights or time in flight. Safety is our primary concern. When you sign up for our courses, we are focused on helping you build the skills and get the experiences that you will need to safely fly on your own. Once certified by us, you are not just sent out of the nest. Your P2+ tuition makes you a Skydance Team Member and eligible for ongoing mentoring of Special Skills, equipment discounts and priority access to our clinics and tours.

WHAT DOES A DAY OF PARAGLIDING TRAINING LOOK LIKE: If the weather cooperates, you will be outfitted with gear, learn how to properly setup, hook in and launch the wing over head. By the end of your first day you will have learned to keep the wing overhead and generate airspeed for launch. In two to four days you will be able to manage the glider through inflation, launch, short flights and landings. When you and your instructor feel comfortable and safe, we move up to larger hills, which offer higher and longer flights. You will also learn weather theory, aerodynamics, US airspace rules, and so much more to gain understanding that will be verified by written and oral exams. Within approximately 4 days you will be flying Solo! This course of education ends with a P2 Novice Certification from your USHPA Certified Instructor who verifies that you can safely pursue paragliding on your own without direct supervision from an instructor.
