Back to Basics

Making this initial purchase of the Basic Equipment Package items below through Eagle qualifies students for the discounted $1500 Novice Pilot Certification course fee. The Eagle Team appreciates our students support by rewarding us with their initial gear purchase. We may be the only school allocating a portion of student equipment sales to our full time instructors in addition to their hourly rate.  Our instructors give all they have to build a solid foundation together with our students, allowing our alumni to safely enjoy the sport. The flight park, geography, and weather conditions in Santa Barbara make it the premiere year-round training location in North America. Students realize the extra travel cost is all worth it, and a better option than training closer to home.

Students with other plans on where to purchase equipment pay $295 a day for training as they work toward Novice Pilot Certification. Students need a minimum of seven days training to become certified. Daily payments are maxed on day ten. The amount of days required for each individual student to achieve Novice Certification is at the sole discretion of Eagle Paragliding. Students who are already full USHPA members, and started paragliding programs elsewhere or have a paramotoring background pay $250 a day when working with Eagle Paragliding toward completing their Novice Certification Program. Eagle will confirm your previous training dates in order to meet the minimum standard of seven days training to become certified. Daily payments are maxed on day ten. The amount of days required for each individual student to achieve Novice Certification is at the sole discretion of Eagle Paragliding. Regardless of which program you choose, once Eagle certified, you enjoy all the benefits of being an Eagle Paragliding Alumni. These benefits include no cost for P3 and P4 ratings, continued coaching and support, and priority access to our worldwide paragliding tours and paragliding clinics.  There is no expiration date or time period for which students must complete the training program.
