History and philosophy
For learning as well as coaching paragliding is only perfect when the weather can meet our expectations…..
In 2017 we set up the first beginner camp in Chile. The success of the camp was way above our expectations. The students went “ballistic!!” The “Chile Glide Paragliding Camp” was born.
Since then, we enjoy every year to coach our students in the ‘flying paradise’. The statistics of our pilots who continue to fly and progress after our camps is much, much higher than any others that we know, and we are really happy about this.
Humans love the sensation of flying. But in most places, the learning process is often frustrating due to the weather – limited airtime and lack of ground handling. Sadly around the world the statistics of beginners who finaly become autonomous pilots is really low. Those who manage to improve to learn are spending lots of time and energy into paragliding. WE love efficiency, and we wanted to optimise the learning process.
Iquique is the most reliable place on earth to fly. Weather and topography are far better than anywhere else. It’s was the perfect place to create a dream paragliding camp and here we go.
We’ve launched Glide Paragliding.
Welcome to the magic.
Loraine & François
“Iquique is like a Theme Park for paragliders, where you can play hours and hours close to the sand dunes of Palo-Buque getting a level up in your handling controls.”
Horacio Llorens – 10 times world cup Champion
« Venant du milieu du parachutisme et de base jump, je pensais que le parapente serait facile. François m’a aidé à comprendre un autre aspect du ciel. François m’a appris de comprendre et utiliser l’aérologie et les reliefs d’une manière que je ne connaissais pas auparavant. Un vrai privilège d’apprendre d’un instructeur aussi professionnel et passionné, ses enseignements m’ont aidé à devenir un pilote sûr et confiant. Sa gentillesse et son énergie ont fait de cette expérience un souvenir incroyable, autant sur le plan humain que technique. Je recommande vivement son cours à tout le monde, en particulier aux pilotes expérimentés qui pensent tout savoir »

« Great instructors with well proved skills, fantastic attitude and ability to adjust the training for each student depending on the skills level, made the course very informative and educational. »
