WINGMASTER is the first “e-Masterclass” in the paragliding universe. Thanks to the success of the online course 100% video, which has been available in French for 2 years, the creators : Sébastien Turay (television producer, aeronautical journalist) and Jérôme Canaud, (one of the most renowned French paragliding technician), decided to provide the English version.

A few words from Jérôme Canaud

Paragliding requires continuous training like any other aerial activity

You noticed, after watching the free episode that WINGMASTER is not only for beginners but also for all « leisure » paragliders (even experienced pilots with more than 10 years of experience).

Matters are clear: you have to regularly review your flight techniques and update your practice. Paragliding requires continuous training, like any other aerial activity, which we forget too often. Some pilots do not dare, for example, to take a training course or to ask an instructor to review some techniques. WINGMASTER is an essential complement for pilots training.

Wingmaster is not a paragliding course. In this MOOC you will find all the techniques that I use personally and that I recommend in my training to fly well and safely: the right gestures, the right positions and the right techniques.

With up to 8 cameras in flight, you will be a privileged spectator

When you train, you know: you are the only one in the air on a radio link with the ground or in an educational two-seater. With Wingmaster, for the first time, you will be on board with me and I will show you everything you need to know. You will be a privileged spectator because in flight I have up to 8 cameras, you will not miss any of my gestures!
