The Learning Never Ends
We get hoards of pilots who were certified elsewhere visiting Santa Barbara to connect with Eagle for continuing education opportunities. We will fully customize training to meet your expectations. We will help you with ground handling, launching, spot landing, thermal flying, and cross-country insights. We charge $350 a day for pilots who already have a minimum of a P2 rating with USHPA and want to work on their skills and foundation at Elings Flight Park. We also offer custom clinics to pilots wanting guidance in the mountains on thermal and XC flying. The pricing on our custom clinics decreases the more days you book. It’s common for pilots to spend a few days with us, and even more as we customize programs to match each individual pilots wants and needs. We have seen what was expected to be two or three days of continuing education turn into a week, and pilots wanting to stay even longer. We developed the “Eagle For Life” program for pilots who were certified elsewhere, and realize the benefit of access Eagles continuing education programs. The program cost is a one time $2950 fee, and gives you unlimited coaching any day we are with students at the flight park or in the mountains. We are flying all of these locations when Mother Nature is offering favorable flying conditions. Certified pilots have found this program to be of great value when they plan on spending some time flying in Santa Barbara every year. The “Eagle For Life” program does not apply to our tours and clinics. However, the program does give you priority registration on our World Wide Paragliding Tours and Paragliding Clinics. Our tours and clinics sell out every year, and have earned eagle the worldwide reputation as being educational leaders in these arenas.
