The P2 program is for motivated persons. You will pay by the day but not more than the maximum of $1695. All flights are done with the latest equipment. You will be under radio supervision at all times when flying, and to make it safer and easier we'll use the winch.
The P2 Program is designed to teach you the skills necessary to inflate, ground handle and control your glider, and eventually fly solo without direct instructor supervision (with certain limitations). It's a fun and safe path to progressively become an accomplished novice pilot.
I received my P2 from Benoit. Benoit was the instructor of the year in 2011. In fact, I drove 145 miles each way from NH to attend his classes. You have to be patient with the weather if you are to become a pilot. I had nothing but positive, patient and safe instruction. Even after six years, we remain in contact, and he readily continues to guide my flying life. Let's go paragliding is the best! I highly recommend his school!
The maximum cost of the P2 program is $1695.
