Learning the handling of dynamic

During this training you are exposed to dynamic forces, as they normally happen during paragliding flights. Not only in spiral dives, but also after collapses or spiral dives after collapses, caused by cravats, which can in turn lead to very high g-loads.
A crash can occur without the know-how of dynamic handling during flights.
Primarily, with g-force, you realize how critical the posture or harness adjustment can be. These factors have a major influence in dynamic maneuvers, and therefore these specific points will be analyzed during the g-force training.


The training is designed as a one day workshop. The number of members can be formed in a flexible way.

Experience has shown that groups from 5 – 8 people are ideal. Of course, the possibility of single training is also a given. The effective training time on the simulator is much higher compared to the real training in flight. Without putting oneself in a dangerous situation during flight, certain conditions can be trained safely without safety risks.

The program is based on the following divisions:

  • Theoretical basics
  • Risk introduction and technical introduction on the trainings device
  • Simulator training with increase of g-force with individual matching to the pilot and learning the anti g-straining maneuver
  • Improvement of harness settings (if necessary)
  • Become acquainted to the human limits up until the black out.
  • Pushing the limits forward with the technique „anti g-straining maneuver“
  • Rescue/release training under g-force
  • Video recording with on-board camera
  • Real time data log of 3 axis g-force (g-value time diagram)
  • Evaluation of data with de-briefing

 

No fear of the black out:

In the simulator training it becomes possible to learn the handling of the “black out” and its pre-stages and how to defeat fear. Once the onsets of the “black out” occur, you still have a short time to react appropriately.
With a small amount of routine, you can steer until your vision returns without having the g-force reduced. When not knowing your limits, and reacting with numbness caused by fear, your last chance to react is lost (i.e. Collision, or a stabile spiral dive after a collapse).


As experience has shown, this training method is specially designed for the human body. The day training has been established to learn the anti g-training maneuver. With this technique, the resistance, for most of the pilots, can be doubled. This way it is possible for the duration of the spiral, a continuous load to be felt. This is essential for the application of the spiral as a descend method.

Finally, it is recommended to turn the collected experience from the simulator training into flight, preferably in a SIV course.
At this point, the pilot is familiar high g-forces and can focus on optimal initiation for every single phase during the spiral for Intensive Course, this of course varies, depending on the glider type.

Why simulator training in extreme situations in aviation, aerospace and military fields is mandatory?

Fatal pilot error in these areas are associated with extremely high material damage and / or the hazards to the public.

These points are rather subordinated for paragliding.The protection of one's life is in the foreground. Capture the new option to your safety!


 

A TRAINING DEVICE FOR MANY APPLICATIONS


Persons from other forms of flying, or even people can have no pilot's license also attend the training.

For paragliders the primary objective of this training is to know the physical boundaries and expand. In emergency situations with and without training to high centrifugal forces have fatal consequences.

The spiral dive is also the key to many opportunities for paragliding. Whether in thermals and cross-country flying or as the basis for the SAT in all variations to the introduction into the infinity tumbling, leading to this maneuver over nothing.

For the organism a longer spiral flown with 3 g to endure difficult than short-term peak loads such as occur in some Acrofiguren (up to approximately 6.5 g).


 

 

 

 

The benefits of simulator training:

  • Learning in real but controlled conditions.
  • Limiting the maximum g-load to any value.
  • Preparing and practicing difficult procedures in emergency situations (possibility of black out through unintentionally induced centrifugal loads such as spiral dive after cravat or collision)
