Fast, Simple & Safe! That's the smallest EN/LTF-B Glider in the world!
The SuSi3 is perfect for the low-level B pilot looking for a forgiving lightweight wing, or for those choosing to operate on the upper side of the weight range, providing the lightest and fastest equipment for extreme mountaineering or high-wind soaring conditions. The extensive weight range offered within the SuSi3 lineup provides you with all the options to choose the right size for whatever your adventure demands. We’ve developed a chart to assist you in choosing the right glider for your application. If you are looking for basic wing behaviour from a low EN-B glider, then choose according to the fields with a green background. Those seeking fun in the blue background with higher loadings will notice the increased trim-speed, requiring greater pilot experience. The glider’s behaviour still remains predictable, and provides greater flying options, such as strong-wind soaring opportunities.
Light airbag back protection for your String harness. This removable Airbag can easily be adapted to the 2 different versions of the String harness and to the String Pack thanks to its velcro at the back, its two toggles and its side clips. It contains a stow-away zip pocket which will be very useful to store your rucksack before you take off. Its inflation system is efficient thanks to two side scoops; it is certified EN/LTF passing the remarkable shock absorption test up to 24G. This removable airbag protection is also certified EC, European standards for PPE.

Flystyle - Paragliding Gear and Lessons
It's not just about flying, it's about the adventure.
Learning to become a proficient solo pilot takes time and dedication. You may have to spend an entire day or two waiting for the right conditions, you may have to journey to unfamiliar places, and you may have to overcome some big fears.
It’s not easy learning to fly, but it's so much fun and definitely worth it.
Whether you are interested in paragliding or paramotoring, the core skills and concepts to becoming a safe and proficient solo pilot are the same.
You will gain the necessary knowledge to make the fly or no fly decision before your feet ever leave the ground. You will know where you should fly, and you will understand the risks involved in every flight.
No matter what flying style you choose as your primary goal, the FS1 Course is designed to give you the mentorship and guidance to become a competent solo pilot.
The ASF Course is a prerequisite and students must sign up for the FS1 Course within 30 days after completion to stay current. Students must also invest in their own gear to join the FS1 Course.
Why choose Flystyle?
Flystyle has been one of the leading flight schools in the Pacific Northwest for over 8 years now. We take great care in making sure our students learn correctly, which takes time and flexibility. We have a long list of previous students who are now competent solo pilots making flights all around the world.
Where is the course taught?
The FS1 Course requires students to travel to the Oregon Coast and Hood River, Oregon. These areas give students a wide variety of flying conditions and different flying sites to learn from.
Why not teach at one location?
Flying is like backcountry skiing--the variables are changing everyday, hazards are never the same, and if you do something stupid or make a bad decision, it could result in death or serious injury. Being prepared is the smart choice.
For example, If you are learning to fly a paramotor at someone’s grassy field along the coast and after completing that course you decide you are going to take a flight in the high desert, or in a valley, or mountain region, you might be putting yourself into a situation where you are confronted with class 4 or 5 rapids, but have only ever practiced on class 1 rapids.
These sports can be very dangerous if you do not have adequate training or adequate knowledge, which is why we take extra care in teaching our students.
How long does the course take?
A typical student has 4-8 lesson days depending upon how fast they are learning and the weather. Most students typically complete their training in a 1-2 month period, it really depends upon how often a student can be available to go flying.
Is there a limit to the number of students that can sign up?
Yes, because we only have one instructor (Daniel Randall), and can only accept about 10 FS1 students per year. We urge anyone who is interested in learning to sign up before April 30th to secure your spot. This gives you the best flying season to learn (May-October) and to get your gear on time because it can take up to 30 days for your gear to arrive depending upon the manufacturer and inventory availability.
What ratings do students receive once they complete the FS1 course?
FS1 rating + FS1 benefits
P2 rating with USHPA (the non-profit organization that helps maintain flying sites, and instructional standards).

SUP'Air 2B Light
Double staged speedbar by SUP'Air.
Designed to work with light gear, this accelerator is simple and efficient.
MUCH SAFETY PACKED IN A SMALL SIZE
Low sink rates and fast opening are what define the SECURE. The Rapid Inflation System (RIS) designed by U-Turn is providing very low opening time.
Particular ribbons cause that the canopy does not lie flat on top of each other at the ‚base‘, but that an accurate calculated pre-tension generates air gates. Thereby the filling behaviour is positively influenced, especially in the first few milliseconds. For the SECURE the PARATEX RS is used. The cloth was designed by U-Turn in co-operation with Paratex and optimized for the usage in reserve parachutes. It is a tear-proof nylon fabric, which fulfilles the high demands to tear resistance and at the same time ideal porosity, at only 40 grams per square meter. The fabric quality additionally ensures the relatively small pack size of the SECURE.

THE IDEAL PARAGLIDING HELMET
The PILOT helmet was specially developed by SUPAIR for paraglider pilots and paragliding schools. It is modern, comfortable and very light.
Certified for paragliding / freeflight CE EN 966
Weight: 380 grams (with adjustable headband and removable ear pads)
One size (adjustable XS to L)
Delivered with a protective microfiber helmet bag
The PILOT flight helmet meets the requirements of the European standard EN966 : 2012 + A1 : 2012 and the European Directive EU / 89/686 / EEC (indicated by the CE marking).
The PILOT flight helmet is a category 2 EPI.
Monobloc construction (in-mould manufacturing process) with adjustment dial: one size helmet with adjustable headband covering sizes from XS to L (54 to 59 cm).
The shell is only 320g, probably making it the lightest certified paragliding helmet on the market. Comfort was made possible by combining minimal shell weight with comfort padding around and atop the head. With a great field of view, the PILOT is a helmet which doesn't get in the way.
The size adjustment dial on the back is very effective for adjusting the headband circumference to suit the pilot's head size. Ventilation is achieved through an inner air flow circuit with an exterior air intake.
Closing the chinstrap is actuated by tightening a precise self-locking toothed strap. Releasing the locking mechanism is easily done even with gloves on.
The inner comfort foam and ear pads are removable to facilitate product maintenance.
Materials: In-mould technology
Adjustable headband with size adjustment dial
14 air vents
Internal comfort foam and ear pads are removable and washable
