After 1 year of flying I was feeling comfortable and confident enough to try my first SIV training. Paragliding Holland makes use of the services of Sky Club Austria, that has one of the best training locations in Austria, the Hallstattersee, with the Krippenstein takeoff at 2100 amsl. With 1300m of altitude difference to the lake below it provides an excellent and safe training environment under the expert guidance of Walter Schrempf and his team.
This video is a compilation of some of the performed excersises. Most interesting was the Soft Entry approach to the Full stall, which proves to be a much safer entry to this technique , with less danger of falling into the wing if brakes are accidently released too early.
