offer Paragliding tuition that will allow you to train / fly as
safely as possible and to a British Hang Gliding & Paragliding
Association (BHPA) level and beyond. To fly by yourself without
the supervision of a school and instructor, you need to complete
the Elementary Pilot Certificate (EPC) and the Club Pilot (Novice)
Certificate (CPC) on the Paraglider. This usually takes around
10 days to complete both the EPC and CPC certificates with us.
you have achieved the Paragliding Club Pilots Certificate (CPC)
you are free to join your local club and fly unsupervised
while your a member of the BHPA and your local club.
From here you will need to find a coach who will be able to further
your experience flying with others, and as Mark is the chief coach
for the Long Mynd paragliding club he can do this free of charge,
so we are always on hand to help you throughout your flying career.
Additionally, for third party insurance purposes there is a mandatory
requirement to become a member of the BHPA before you can learn
to fly. When you start a day taster, the BHPA daily membership
fee is already included in the cost of your day. On a full course,
you have two options on the EPC or CPC courses; 3 months membership
at £77 or an annual cost of £121 (this includes an
initial joining fee of £22). Membership is arranged on your
first day of training (as part of the administration steps).
so cost for the EPC is £600 and for the CPC is £500
but we combine the two and do it for £1000 or as i said
you can do a taster day to see if you are going to get the bug
and that will be deducted from the full course price. If you have
any other questions or want to speak to Mark about anything then
you can call him on 07774856056 or email.
contact Sian for all the information needed to book a EP or CP
