- Ground-handling is one of the best ways to improve your flying
- Can be used to practice ground-handling in higher winds than normal paragliders
- Specifically designed for strong winds
- Not for flight!
Ground-handling is one of the most important aspects of paragliding progression. With the Groundhog, pilots can progress and learn the most basic or most advanced aspects of ground-handling in wind conditions where normal paragliders become more difficult to manage. Because of its ease of use in higher wind, schools and students will lose less training days because of weather. The smaller size of the Groundhog makes it generally simpler and easier to use. Students are less likely to be dragged or picked up, and the wing’s quick reactions to brake input and footwork help to accelerate the progression of the pilot.
This is a small and simple design for easy training in high winds. The primary purpose of the Groundhog is to practice ground-handling in higher winds than normal paragliders can manage easily. This wing is not for flight!
