tow xc safaris
Sky Out Paragliding has been running XC Tow Safaris in the NSW LiverPool Plains since 2013.
This course is more designed for novice to intermediate XC Pilots, however even advanced comp pilots will leave the Safari learning something new and having great PB's with friends and guides.
The course includes daily weather and XC briefings from the Sky Out Team,XC guides (1guide-3pilot ratio), XC retrieve service, debriefs on flight decision making as well as lectures on XC performance and psychology, making the best of the day and equipment selection and maintenance.
Every Safari we have run has seen 80% of pilots fly new PB's.
