To master your glider in critical situations and gain control again, attending a SIV training is recommended.
The only requirement is that you have a pilot license.
Usually the course will be held during the weekends (Friday till Sunday). Goal is to learn quick descending techniques, mastering critical situations and opening your rescue canopy. All flight maneuvers are conducted above the Millstättersee.
Start of all maneuvers is on a very nice slope above the Alexanderhütte.
Lifejackets are taken care of by the flight school.
