Let's Get Started
At Florida Flight Sports we teach the USPPA Syllabus. Students will recieve an in depth printed syllabus that details all of the skills and training we will be covering during your training. Sessions will alternate between the practice field, classroom, and hangar depending on subject matter and weather.
Wind Handling / Kiting
Your journey will start with becoming familiar with the wing and learning how to control it. Whether you are a wheeled or foot launch pilot wing control is the most important part of flying.
You will start out with the 14 meter SOL FUN WING. It's a smaller easy to control ground handling wing that builds the muscle memory and connection with the wing. It's small size allows us to practice in stronger wind conditions where a full size wing is not practical. Not everyone is physically able to run and kite a wing. Don't worry, it's not a deal breaker! We have devoloped training methods to accomodate everyone.
Kiting and Wing Control
Crawl, Walk, then Run or Roll into the sky! You will become familiar with your wing from the risers, trims, lines, and fabric. You will learn ground control by kiting or inflating and taxiing on the trike. This time spent on the field develops that crucial connection between the pilot and his wing.
2 sessions of classroom learning
Your ground school will be taught by Gorilla Ground and Paul Abachoun. Both are long time Flight Instructors and Advanced Ground Instructors. In these sessions you will learn the principals of flight, aerodynamics, Part 103 law, airspace, and aviation weather.
Time to fly!
Once you've learned all of the basics it's time to leave the nest. We will start out with inflations and long controlled taxi runs. When the weather is right and you've mastered inflation and taxi, you will make your 1st solo flight. You will be in constant communication with an instructor over the radio for your first 10 to 12 flights.
Your journey has only begun
When your training is complete you will be a safe and confident pilot. This is where the real learning begins as you refine your technique find what type of flying you enjoy most. You are always welcome to come back for additional time if you need help at no charge.
