Price for 1 participant

This is a comprehensive Paragliding course for anyone who is really serious about getting into the great sport of paragliding. You will cover both the EPC (Elementary Pilot Rating) and the CPC (Club Pilot Certificate). The EPC is the first qualification recognised by the BHPA (British Hang Gliding & Paragliding Association) and upon successful completion you will be qualified to fly solo under the supervision of an instructor! The course is great fun and you will learn a massive amount about the equipment, safety, weather and most importantly....flying! You will then move on to the the CPC, which is the qualification recognised by the BHPA that upon successful completion will allow you to fly solo. The course has the added bonus of being situated in the beautiful Sussex Downs - the perfect backdrop to your dreams of flight!

The EPC normally takes around 4 days - two days on the lower slopes of a hill and two working your way to the top. Once you have achieved the EPC you will be able to prepare your wing and equipment, do the necessary safety checks, assess site/weather conditions, take off and land by yourself, carry out moderate turns and execute a simple flight plan. The CPC Builds on the skills learned during your EPC course; you will perfect more defined turns and more elaborate flight plans which will enable you to soar for the first time. You will then explore the flying characteristics and stability of your wing more fully. The final part of the course is usually the top landing tasks - yes you will land on top of the hill to avoid those pesky uphill hikes!
