Event Details

Skydive Algarve's Active Piloting 2-day canopy course teaches you to be a pilot, not a passenger!

Experience every control input your canopy has to offer, and learn to fly where you want to go in a range of wind conditions. Try out precision turns and start playing with front risers up high to fully understand the speed your wing is capable of. Gain the tools to deal with difficult situations. Skydive Algarve will even have you trying out some crosswind landings!

Learn how to use your body position to control the canopy and keep you safer at the same time. Improve your flying more than you thought possible. You will leave a more capable and much more assertive canopy pilot. Fly with newfound confidence.
