2 WEEK COMBINED BHPA EP & CP COURSE

Learn to paraglide with our English-speaking paragliding school located in the heart of Europe, in the Swiss Alps. This is an intensive paragliding programme aimed at people who are complete beginners and would like to leave with a paragliding license that allows them to fly unsupervised. This course is split into two 5-day courses.

COMPLETE BEGINNER TO QUALIFIED PARAGLIDER PILOT

This comprehensive syllabus combines the EP & CP courses and will take you from your first steps in learning to fly through to being a qualified and confident pilot. This is a British qualification equivalent to the international level 3.

Our location allows you to take advantage of the excellent weather conditions and high mountains of Switzerland for maximum airtime! With over 300 flyable days a year, you couldn’t learn to fly in a better location.

Many students struggle with the climate or terrain in their home country when trying to complete their Club Pilot qualification but due to our exceptional climate, we have almost a 100% success rate for students getting qualified in just 2 weeks.

The aim of this course is to take a student from total novice to qualified pilot so that they can start to explore the world of paragliding alone.

OBJECTIVE

  • Complete beginner to licensed paragliding pilot.
  • We can organise that your Club Pilot Licence is accompanied by an International Proficiency card, (IPPI level 3), that it is recognised worldwide. Swiss residents will need to complete our FSVL course in order to fly in Switzerland.
