Course details paragliding, paramotor and speed flying

Validity Period

Courses and gift vouchers are valid for 12 months from the date of purchase. 

This means that the course must be completed within 12 months from the date of purchase after which it will expire and therefore no longer be valid. 

The 12 month validity period for all of our courses and gift vouchers takes into account availability on our courses and applies to all instances including outside influences such as the weather.

As all courses are weather dependent we recommend you book your initial course as soon as possible, subject to availability, as it is not unusual to have courses postponed due to unsuitable weather conditions.

Course Credit

If a course is postponed due to unsuitable weather conditions a course credit will automatically apply and can be used at any time within the 12 month period. 

Refund Policy

Equipment Rentals / Lessons  - Refund

It takes a good deal of time and effort to coordinate our rentals/lessons and reserve our equipment for our customer so we do not give refunds for any cancellations for our rental equipment or lessons.

We will however issue store credit or re-schedule to a later date free of charge

No Cash Value

Our courses and gift vouchers do not have a cash value. This means that they cannot be redeemed for cash.

Safety Statement

Mount Paragliding Safety Statement & Warning Of Risks

By choosing to purchase any goods or services from us you agree that you have read and accept our safety statement.

Paragliding is a form of aviation with all of the inherent and potential dangers that are involved in aviation. No form of aviation is without risk, and injuries and death can occur in paragliding, even to trained pilots using proper equipment. Whilst Mount Paragliding endeavours to minimise this risk as far as is reasonably practicable, it cannot be eliminated altogether.

Paragliding is classed as an 'extreme sport', and an 'adventurous' and 'dangerous' activity, which carries with it - like all adventure sports and flying/aviation activities - an associated risk of possible serious injury or even death. If you are not prepared to take this risk, you shouldn't participate in paragliding - or participate in any 'extreme sport', 'adventurous' or 'dangerous' activity, or flying / aviation activities.

Of course we will always try to minimise this risk, and ensure that your flying is as safe as possible within reason, but we can never promise to remove this element of risk completely. This is simply not possible; anyone who thinks otherwise is mistaken.

No one should participate in paragliding who does not recognise and wish to personally assume the associated risks.

Mount Paragliding will always endeavour to do everything it can within reason to ensure that you get the best and safest paragliding tuition and tandem paraglider flights humanly possible. Your safety is always our highest priority.

At Mount Paragliding we aim to provide the highest standard of training whilst ensuring that risks to your safety are kept as low as reasonably practicable. To achieve this we:

  • Regularly maintain and inspect all equipment to ensure safe working order.
  • Carry out regular risk assessments of all training sites and weather conditions whilst we are using the sites for training.
  • Follow NZHGPA operations and procedures guidelines
