Good SIV and pilotage training makes you a safer and better pilot. It doesn’t matter what level pilot you are – a good trainer will develop your skills so that you know exactly how to react if things go wrong.

In recent years, it’s become increasingly commonplace for competition pilots to do a refresher course every 12 months, and we think every pilot should do at least one. CIVL and test pilots the world over are trying to get the message out as to just how important they are.

To try and make them even more accessible, Cross Country magazine has teamed up with four of the world’s best SIV and pilotage instructors to give subscribers an exclusive discount on training. Don’t think too much about it – just do it. You won’t regret it – we promise.

Subscribers can get a discount with Jocky Sanderson, Flyeo in Annecy, Eagle Paragliding and the Profly Team. To qualify, you must be a subscriber to Cross Country magazine at the time of booking, and you must book before 31 August 2013.
