Paragliding Students at Porterville Dasklip

Porterville and Dasklip Pass for students


Dasklip is a great site to introduce students to easy thermal flying and is quite safe when flying in the morning and late afternoon. The Launch area is a little rocky but not really a major problem. The landing zone is massive and you have literally kilometres of space to land a student. Students can have great flights from 09h00 - 11h00 and even through the day depending on the time of year. In high summer the thermals can be a little strong sometimes and best to launch around 09h00 - 10h00. Dasklip - Porterville site is also great for those that want to explore their first Cross Country flights and it's quite easy to glide 4-6km down the ridge. When the skill of pilots have improved then the new pilots on a average day could fly 10-30km without too much risk. This a great site for introduction to high sites and flights as the instructor has clear views for many kilometers. Dolphin Paragliding recommends training at this wonderful site. One can stay at Flyers Lodge Porterville for tours as it's quite cheap and has a nice area for lectures and relaxing by the bar.
