Dragon Flight Training

Dragon Flight Training - How to Train Your Dragon
It was once believed that the greatest thrill Vikings could ever experience was on the battlefield. Now, in this new age of Viking-dragon friendship, we have discovered that there is no greater joy than flying. Every young Viking’s dream is to mount one of these majestic winged creatures and soar above the clouds. However, it is not as simple as hopping onto a dragon’s back, flicking the reins, and taking off. What many young dragon trainers do not realize is that teaching a dragon to fly takes an enormous amount of effort. Lucky for you, the School of Dragons ensures that every student is equipped with the resources necessary to train their dragon in flight.

One of the most important things for you to remember is that flying is a step-by-step process. No dragon can fly as soon as it hatches, as they must develop the strength to carry themselves. Keeping this in mind will help both you and your dragon train patiently without getting discouraged, if you are making slow progress. In order to help your dragon grow, train them in other skills at the Training Grounds and refine these abilities on quests. Providing them with a strong foundation in all other areas will prepare a dragon physically and mentally for the challenge of flying. As your dragon grows, its confidence will increase along with its strength. Rather than fearing flight, your dragon will be equipped with the confidence to take on this new challenge.

Your dragon’s early attempts at flying might be clumsy, but you’ll notice that a balanced combination of training and fun will be incredibly effective in speeding up your dragon’s learning process. Taking flight can be a scary time for a young dragon, which is why a strong bond between you and your dragon is crucial. Each time your dragon makes progress, reward them with plenty of fish and take them on new adventures so that they can practice their newfound skills. Caring for your dragon will build its faith in you, which will increase its success during skills training. A dragon that loves and trusts its Viking companion will gladly take on the risk of flying into any challenge.

Your dragon's progress in this field is a reflection of your commitment and involvement in training your dragon to fly. Riding on a dragon's back is the ultimate display of the bond between the two of you, so keep that in mind as you begin training your new best friend!
