How to ground handle a paraglider ➞ Improve your ground handling techniques

Are you wondering how to ground handle a paraglider? It is quite important for a paraglider pilot to improve your ground handling skills. We say it is very important both for building your confidence before starting to fly and for your own safety on the launch site. But there are always common questions, such as: “Where should I practice it?” or “What should I try to do?”

Today, at Overfly Tenerife, we will give you some tips about how to ground handle a paraglider and a set of exercises in order to get you started on mastering the control of your wing. Furthermore, if you are interested in more information related to paragliding, you can take a look to other posts of our blog. For example:

Now, it is time to show you how to ground handle a paraglider!

How to ground handle a paraglider

You have to look for a wind with a speed of 10 or 20kilometres per hour on an open slope. We strongly recommend you to try and do ground handling on a sloping field than on a flat field. It is worse because, on a flat field, your wing will sit back slightly from vertical, so it makes it harder to get a real feeling of what your paraglider will do on the launch site.

Normally, if you go to a paragliding site early in the morning, you will arrive there before many people do. It is then when you can just go off to a side and practice there. We recommend you to stay a little bit back from the launching area. This way, you will be more on the flat top of the hill and, although you won’t fly off the slope, that will give you a great real situation to work and find out what the wing will do in a usual airflow on a launch site.

What you have to use for ground handling a paraglider safely

There is nothing special that you have to use for ground handling your paraglider. We recommend you to use the same paragliding equipment that you would normally use for flying. That will give you good practice, gets you familiar with the feeling of your harness and your glider.

Remember that safety is vital when you are practicing this aerial sport. So you always have to wear your paragliding helmet! It is quite important when you are ground handling, due to you are extremely close to the ground. So it is very easy to get tripped over or lifted up into the air. If that happens, you will probably bang your head against the ground. So please, put your helmet on!

You also have to use back protection — it is a good idea to have a harness with foam in the back. That will be really useful if you find yourself lying on the ground. Although you are not flying very high, it is dangerous too. Don’t you want to break any of your bones, right? Then, use your harness, but make sure that it has got back protection in. Most of them do!

It is also important to protect your hands and your feet, so we recommend you to use paragliding gloves and boots too! You must use gloves because it is quite easy to get burnt with the lines, and boots, as you would use them for a normal flight. You can also do it with trainers, but definitely not in sandals. That is quite obvious, because your feet will be dragged across the ground, and we guess that you don’t want them to get hurt.

Top 10 exercises to learn how to ground handle a paraglider

Now that you know how to ground handle a paraglider, trying this exercises is a must! We strongly recommend you to take a look at the Ground Handling Challenge, where you will find lots of videos which show all these exercises and techniques. But beyond that, down below you will find the list that we have created with our 10 favourite ground handling exercises:

how-to-ground-a-paraglider

Now, we will show you some exercises in order learn how to ground handle a paraglider.

Keep it up – Exercise 1

At the beginning, you just have to focus on keeping the paraglider up in a reversed position. For that, you have to do a reverse launch facing the paraglider wing, pull it up, and work on keeping it up. You can do it simply moving yourself under the wing to centre it. If it falls over one side or the other, you have to move your feet and keep the wing up.

We recommend you to start trying to do small brake corrections, and do the big corrections with your feet. Then mix it up and do it all the way around. This way, you will have the chance to learn what the inputs are doing. You will see how that changes the feeling of the wing and its responses.

Face forwards – Exercise 2

Turn around and face forward. If you look at the ground and you look ahead, you will feel what the wing is doing. You will feel which way it is pulling, reacting to move underneath the wing, or if it is pulling one way or another. What you can do is spending as much time as you need just walking around the paragliding site until you feel entirely connected to your wing.

Flying speed with minimum distance – Exercise 3

You should practice loading up the chest strap before running. Doing that will help you to prevent the harness from sliding up your legs, and it will also give you a better connection with the wing than running upright. So we recommend you to try it and load the chest strap up. Then, increase to flying speed while you cover the minimum distance. But be patient, because this could take you a few days to get it right.

how-to-ground-a-paraglider

Transitions: smooth turns – Exercise 4

You have to work on your transitions, so you better go back from a reversed launch position. You must turn, but without bouncing your head — trying to keep a low martial arts stance. This way, you can swing around to face forwards and turn back to face reverse without the paraglider notices that you have moved indeed.

You have to focus on getting a smooth and continuous pull-up from reverse position, bringing the wing up, turning continuously and running with a short launch run. You can get a nice and short effective launch if you keep the process absolutely smooth.

Slow rise – Exercise 5

You must work on slowly bringing the wing up. This way, you will control the speed that is coming up with a slow rise. You can control the speed with your own movement, so move away from the wing or towards it to control that pull-up speed, taking the power out of the wing to bring it up as slow as you can. This way, it will still come up all the time and it won’t drop back.

Slow descent – Exercise 6

You have to work on a slow descent by controlling the speed. This will give you some control, which will help you developing a feeling of power over the wing. It will also save your wing from being whacked down on the ground.

Stall point and fly again – Exercise 7

Explore the stall point. For that, you will have to try and drop the wing back a bit. You can do it walking towards it or using a bit of brakes, or doing both things at the same time. We recommend you to establish where the point is exactly on the arc while your canopy stalls.

how-to-ground-a-paraglider

Every canopy is different, so it depends on the wind speed and the slope you are standing on. However, it is good for you to get an idea of when the wing is about to stall. Moreover, you have to check if you can get it to fly again just as it stalls. So you better work with the stall point, and letting your wing fly again.

Maybe, you need some help to energize your wing again — it will depend on the type of canopy you have. IN any event, play with your wing and experiment with more or less stall. That is the only way that you will really learn about that transition phase between the wing flying and not flying.

Pitch forward and collapse – Exercise 8

The next step is exploring the pitch forward while you allow the wing to search ahead of you on launch without checking it on the brakes. Then, see if you can anticipate when it will collapse. Later, blowback behind you — but you will need to reverse pull up again for that. You have to do it over and over until you develop a feeling of what does the wing look and feel like just before it collapses in front of you.

Tip touches – Exercise 9

You must do tip touches to develop an excellent control on the brakes. You can do it sending the canopy over to the side actually very slow. We recommend you trying to keep your body position fixed and leaning away from the wing. This way, you can rotate your body slightly — so that you will have a nice stabilized position — and then, use the brake to simply fly the wing slowly back up over your head.

You have to do it on both sides of the wing so that you can develop a real excellent control on the brakes. It is so much easier to stall the upper wing tip when it is over on the side. So, if you can fly it back up and put it back down again, you know you have developed an excellent control on the brakes. Those are good news!

Pull up variations – Exercise 10

how-to-ground-a-paraglider

Finally, you will have to try some pull-up variations. Then, see if your wing is able to pull-up without the A’s, leaning back into a stiff breeze only. If it is not, you will have to check if you are able to control it just using the back risers. This means leaning back, letting the wing come up and finally, controlling the pitch with the back risers.

We recommend you to try with both A’s in just one hand and put the brake in the other, and you can even try swapping hands. That is a very useful technique for thermic launches. It is also a good option when the wind is changing a lot or when you are not very sure about its direction. Train this technique — swapping hands, pulling the wing up, and keeping control.

All these exercises are about learning. They will teach you a lot about your wing, your different options and yourself as a paraglider pilot.

More ground handling challenges

There are many other things that you can try to do with ground handling. If you get bored with the exercises mentioned previously, you can always vary. Change them! Try launching backward, try a ‘no control’ launch… and if you are still bored, you can always look for some turbulence, or go and find an obstacle. And, if there are not any… put some obstacles out, run around them… do whatever you want, but have fun! This is what paragliding is about.

Paragliding Skills: Improve Your Ground Handling

Paragliding Skills: Improve Your Ground Handling

Improving your ground handling skills is very important for paraglider pilots, both for your safety on the launch site, and for building your confidence before going to fly. But where should you practice it, and what should you be trying to do? We offer some tips and a structured set of exercises to get you started on mastering your wing control.

What you’re looking for is 10-20 km/h of wind on an open slope. It’s better to try and do ground handling on a sloping field than on a flat field, because on a flat field your wing will sit back slightly from vertical, and it makes it harder to get a real feeling of what a glider will do on a launch site.

Paragliding Skills Improve Your Ground Handling - Flybubble

Quite often if you go to a paragliding site early in the morning before the crowds arrive, you could just go off to the one side and practice there. Stay back from the actual launching area a little bit, so you’re more on the flat top of the hill, then you won’t fly off the slope, but that gives you a really good real situation to try and learn what the wing is going to be doing in a typical airflow on a launchsite.

What to use for ground handling

Paragliding Skills Improve Your Ground Handling - Flybubble

Always remember to wear your helmet! It’s really important when you’re ground handling, because you’re very close to the ground. So it’s quite easy to get tripped over or lifted up into the air and then bang your head on something. So put your helmet on.

Also use back protection: it’s a good idea to have a harness with foam in the back that’s going to be available for you when you’re plucked and dumped on the ground. You don’t need to fall from very far to start breaking bones in your back. So use your normal harness, most of them have got back protection in.

Also use your gloves, it’s easy to get line burn. And use your boots, as you would for normal paragliding. Maybe you fly in trainers, but definitely not in sandals, because you’re going to be dragged around across the ground, there might be some rubbish lying there; you don’t want to mess up your feet.

Use normal equipment, what you’d normally use for flying, that gives you good practice, gets you familiar with the feeling of your harness and your glider.

Paragliding Skills: Improve Your Ground Handling - Flybubble

We sometimes have ground handling only wings and ground handling only harnesses really cheap on our website (these are old and un-airworthy), there for you to get hold of so you can trash them. So if you’ve got an unfriendly field you’re going to be ground handling in, or it’s very muddy, or you just don’t want to damage your wing, then pick up one of those. Alternatively, some pilots choose to get a mini-wing (added bonus: you can do strong wind soaring) or a speed wing (added bonus: you can use it for speed flying) or a dedicated ground handling practice wing (not for flight, just for practice in strong winds).

Ground handling exercise 1

Paragliding Skills: Improve Your Ground Handling

In the beginning, just focus on keeping it up in a reversed position. So do a reverse launch facing the wing, pull the wing up, and just work on keeping it up. Nothing fancy, just moving under the wing to centre it. Whenever it falls over one side or the other, moving your feet, keeping the wing up.

Ground handling exercises: reverse

Try do small brake corrections, and big corrections with your feet. But then mix it up. Do it the other way around, just so you can learn what the inputs are doing. Use no foot input at all, just stay in one spot, try and do everything on the brakes, and see how that changes the feeling of the wing and its responses.

Ground handling exercise 2

Ground handling exercises: forward feeling

Turn around and face forward, doing the same by feeling alone. So you’re just looking at the ground, you’re looking ahead, and you’re feeling what the wing is doing, which way it’s pulling, responding to move underneath the wing if it’s pulling one way or the other. Trying to feel what brake you need to put input in just to correct the yaw on the wing and bring it back to centre. You can spend quite a long time just walking around until you feel completely connected with your wing.

Ground handling exercise 3

Paragliding Skills: Improve Your Ground Handling

Practice loading up the chest strap before running. This helps prevent the harness from sliding up your legs, and it also gives you much better connection with the wing than running upright. So try and load the chest strap up and then increase to flying speed, covering the minimum distance.

Ground handling exercises: loading the chest strap

This can take days to get right. It’s just a feeling of when you need to accelerate with your legs so you match the wing speed as it’s increasing. So try and get it to launch you and get cleanly off the ground without much of a pendulum, you don’t want to try and swing ahead of the wing and then the wing catches up and dumps you. So practice on that: loading up the chest strap, increasing to flying speed with the minimum distance covered.

Ground handling exercise 4

Ground handling exercises: transitions

Work on your transitions. So go back from a reversed launch position. Turning without bobbing your head, trying to keep a low martial arts stance so you can swing around to facing forwards and turn back to face reverse without the glider being aware that you have actually moved. Focus on getting a smooth continuous pullup, so from reverse position, bringing the wing up, turning continuously and running with a short launch run, if you keep that process really smooth you can get a nice short effective launch.

Ground handling exercise 5

Ground handling exercises: slow rise

Work on slowly bringing the wing up, so controlling that speed that it’s coming up with a slow rise. You control the speed by your movement, so moving away from the wing or towards the wing to control that pullup speed taking the power out of the wing to bring it up as slowly as you can so it’s still coming up all the time and it’s not dropping back.

Ground handling exercise 6

Ground handling exercises: slow descent

Work on a slow descent, controlling the descent speed by using your A’s. This will give you some control, develop a feeling of the power in the wing, and also save your wing from being whacked down on the ground.

Ground handling exercise 7

Paragliding Skills: Improve Your Ground Handling - Flybubble

Explore the stall point. Try and drop the wing back a bit either by walking towards it, or using a bit of brakes, or both, and try and establish exactly where the point is on the arc when your wing stalls.

Ground handling exercises: stall and refly

Every wing is different, it depends on the wind speed and the slope you’re standing on, but it’s very good to get an idea of when it’s about to stall, and just as it stalls, see if you can get it to refly. So work with that, stalling it, letting it refly. You might need to grab the A’s to re-engage it, to energize it again, it depends on the wing. But play with that and experiment with more or less stall, so you really learn about that transition phase between the wing flying and the wing not flying.

Ground handling exercise 8

Ground handling exercises: pitch limit

Then explore the pitch forward, allow the wing to search ahead of you on launch without checking it on the brakes, and see if you can anticipate when it’s going to collapse. A sharp jab down on the brakes will catch the collapse, but often it’s going to front tuck, then blow back behind you, you’ll need to reverse pull up again. Do it over and over until you develop a feeling of what the wing looks like and feels like just before it collapses in front of you.

Ground handling exercise 9

Ground Handling Exercises: tip touch

Do tip touches to develop fine control on the brakes. Sending the wing over to the side really slowly. Trying to keep your body position fixed, leaning away from the wing, so rotate your body slightly so you’ve got a nice balanced position, and then use the brake to just slowly fly the wing back up over head.

Paragliding Skills: Improve Your Ground Handling - Flybubble

Do it on both sides, this develops real fine control on the brakes. It’s much easier to stall the upper wing tip when it’s over on the side, so if you can fly it back up and put it back down again, you know you’ve developed good control on the brakes.

Ground handling exercise 10

Ground handling exercises: launch variations

Then try some pullup variations. See if your wing will pullup without the A’s, just leaning back into a stiff breeze, and if it does that see if you can control the wing using the back risers only, so leaning back, letting the wing come up and then controlling the pitch with the back risers.

Try both A’s in one hand, and the brake in the other, and swapping hands. That’s quite a useful technique for thermic launches and when you’re not quite sure about the wind direction or it’s changing a lot. Practice that, swapping hands, pulling the wing up, keeping control.

Practice hooking the loose brake with a finger so you’ve got both brakes with that technique, that’s a nice variation, and also experiment with the A’s and C’s launch, see if that works on your wing, what it’s like, how much steering you’ve got. It’s all about learning about your wing, and your options.

More ground handling challenges

Ground handling exercises: cobra

There are lots of extra things you can try with ground handling. If you’re bored with those ten exercises I’ve given you, you can try skew launches, try aborted launches, cobra launches. Try launching backwards, while still facing the wing in the reverse position and then swinging out in the air. Try a ‘no control’ launch: that’s where you don’t put any input in on the brakes, you try and do it all with body weight, just bringing the wing up, balancing it, turning, running off, launching.

If you’re still bored, go and look for some turbulence, just like the crows, they love to play behind something that’s creating rotor, well you’ve got that nice open slope for ground handling, go and find an obstacle and mess around behind that so you learn about broken airflow and bringing the wing up from dead air into strong wind.

Put some obstacles out, run around them. Have fun!
