Dear flying friends,
in the following lines, we will show you on the process and the important details
of our safety training in Italy – Lake Garda.
MEETING POINT & GETTING THERE
The arrival is individually organized by the participants . For carpool we provide a available list of participants. Our meeting place for training is at the camping LOMBARDI in MALCESINE, on Wednesday at 12:00 am (except special dates and arrangements). Who can´t arrive on Wednesday, gets a specific briefing about landing field, equiment and maneuver.
It is desirable to the meeting place well-nourished and to appear, please do not take the breakfast during the briefing, this would disturb the flow. In addition, we recommend to pay attention to the diet during the training. There is plenty of time for small snacks and liquids to be consumed in the journeys from the landing site to the starting point. Again, we recommend an energy-providing food (e.g., muesli, fruit, sandwiches, etc.). Most important, however, is the fluid balance. If this is neglected, this greatly affects the concentration and should therefore have the highest priority. Alkoholgenuss during the training is strictly to be omitted. In the evening after a successful training session, we recommend keeping the alcohol intake within limits, and especially to ensure a balanced and healthy diet. This is the only way to concentrate and work successfully on the next day.
SPARE CLOTHES, PERSONAL UTENSILS
The personal utensils such as cell phone, key, wallet should be packed in a waterproof bag. Unnecessary items such as Vario, Camera should be left in the car. If you have a waterproof action camera (Go-Pro) this can of course carry along. The recordings can be helpful in the analysis. We recommend carrying a set of dry spare clothes. These can be stored in the car of the training manager at the Landeplatz. The paragliding sport is operated with gloves on!

MATERIAL & EQUIPMENT
Your complete flight equipment should be brought to the course.
Please use your own glider during training. It comes with a safety training course primarily your own skills as the key data of your wing to get to know. It makes little sense, fly screens in a safety training test. The peerless maneuvers should not serve to the purchasing decision or It is important to screen buying the maneuvers aim learn to master the special properties of the screen. Note that the screen has a valid check. Pilots who want to train on the safety maneuver, and want to learn freestyle maneuvers, should bring the Freestyle screen and the standard screen. It may be that we first intended to accomplish certain maneuvers for security reasons with the default screen. Conversely, we will train only with some dynamic maneuvers according to dynamic, small screens.
The rescuers must be packed in accordance with folding interval and waited. It is possible to pull the rescue unit on the last flight of the safety training. The theme of rescue equipment to deal with this realistic form, is highly recommended. We offer a drying and Pack service for the thrown rescue equipment. On request, also a Savior of spare time can be (please before training with the instructor for details) provided until your rescue system is packed at the disposal. For the training of freestyle maneuvers, a harness with two rescue systems is expected.
It is advisable, as the glider to complete the training with your own harness. The accelerator should be mounted on the harness and adjusted to the correct length. We recommend the removal of foam protector during safety training. Airbags should either be equipped with a zipper, which accelerated the emptying of the protector with a possible water landing or the ventilation of the protector should be prevented by masking off the inlet. The decision on the removal/elimination of the protector is the pilot. We
point out that the landing in the water with an active protector can be dangerous. For a correct adjustment of the harness, we are happy to help. We hand over a float for the rescue handle out. This is to prevent that the inner container in the water goes down. Fixing this float is explained by the Boot Manager. Note that a compatibility check is not the content of a security training. The K tests should be after the purchase, or be done after the installation of the rescue unit. On request, we carry an equivalent K check against reimbursement. We recommend the study of our blogs on the topic of harness.
Please that take helmets for the first briefing, have to be equipped with radio equipment. Our devices are issued with an earphone, whose PASSFORM may vary depending on the size of the ear. For this reason, we recommend to use a balaclava to ensure optimum support of the earphone. Own radios and helmet fittings should not be a, since they may interfere with radio communications.
- Life jacket
The lifejackets are provided by X-dream fly. We use only highly seaworthy septic with 300 Newton buoyancy. They provide maximum protection and are sure to fainting under virtually all conditions. The life jacket is equipped with an automatic release system. This throws out after a few seconds after landing in the water and the life jacket is filled with air. At the machine a ripcord (red handle) for a manual activation is also on the right side under the velcro fastener. We recommend no handwritten manipulations on the life jacket. The Boot Manager will assist friends in explaining, the operation, as well as the proper tightening. For the refilling of the lifejacket after a possible firing, we charge euro 25,00 for gas cartridge and salt tablets.
The accommodation is also organized by the participants. The choice of hotels and campsites is diverse. Logistically meaningful is the Hotel Orchidea or Camping Lombardi. For information and booking, we recommend the following website of the Malcesine Tourist Board. The briefing is held at the camping place. As a rule, we eat together in the evening, so it is not worth to book half board.
After greeting on Wednesday at 12:00 there is a brief introduction to the process of the SIKU and followed by the actual briefing with Declaration of the maneuver. It be every single training day the maneuvers discussed beforehand and entered into individually on demand. The SIKU maneuver sheet is completely filled with the desired maneuvers and personal data, taken with a meeting place on the first day, will be. It held a briefing on each flight. This is adjusted depending on the current weather situation time and takes normally up to Max 10:00. On the first day, we drive to the landing site for the landing site – and flight area instruction. After we closed to the cable car and solve our train ticket (tariffs of the Funivia Malcesine-Monte Baldo) there. Arrived at the launch site the start Manager is still an appropriate briefing and the actual training can begin. The participants should be now possible quickly ready. There is no special order, except the head of start one provides. To ensure a smooth and rapid flow of training, mind should in the case of a home demolition. two pilots will be ready to go at the same time. The seat should be left clean and tidy. We ask therefore any waste, whether itself or caused by the neighbors, to take and properly disposed of after the flight. The landing the radio is automatically turn off to save battery. Quick folding and stowing of equipment is available. Please help the following participants when putting together after their landing. Depending on the number of participants a part or the whole group by bus from the landing site to the cable car is transported first, which boots up then please independently as quickly as possible back to the launch site. 30 minutes after the landing of the last participant de-briefing begins with video analysis – meeting place to do this will be announced on the spot. The duration depends on the number of training participants.
