Complete beginner to qualified paraglider pilot

This is an intensive paragliding programme aimed at people who are complete beginners and would like to leave with a paragliding licence that allows them to fly unsupervised. This comprehensive syllabus combines the EP and CP courses and will take you from your first steps in learning to fly through to being a qualified and confident pilot.

Our location allows you to take advantage of the excellent weather conditions and high mountains of Switzerland for maximum airtime! With an average 300 flyable days per year we are able to guarantee you will complete your EP and CP syllabuses during the two week course.

Many students struggle with the British climate 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 you from a complete beginner who has possibly never even seen a paraglider before to a qualified and confident pilot ready to go and discover new and exciting places to fly.
