Paragliding EPC Course

The first half of the BHPA solo pilot certification, Solo Paragliding course, all equipment & instruction included, take off & land on your own

Price for 1 participant

Paragliding is thrilling, rewarding and something you will definitely remember for the rest of your life. The feeling of soaring through the sky by yourself is about as close as you can possibly get to the ultimate dream of free flight, and will leave you absolutely buzzing! The EPC (Elementary Pilot Certificate) is the first qualification from the BHPA (British Hang Gliding & Paragliding Association) and once you have successfully completed it, you will be qualified to fly solo under the supervision of an instructor! The course is hugely enjoyable and you will learn a great deal about the equipment, safety, weather and, of course, flying itself! The CPC course is the follow up to the EPC, and once you have completed this, you will be qualified to fly wholly independently!

The course normally takes around 4 days - two days on the lower slopes of a hill and two working your way to the top. When you get your 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.

Minimum age is 16.
You should have a reasonable level of fitness. If you have a medical condition that you think may affect your ability to do this course please check with the centre when booking.
This course usually takes four days dependent on weather and progress.
Due to limited access, this course does not permit spectators. It may be possible to view from a distance however.
This course is available all year round.
The centre will provide you with all the equipment you will need. You should dress warmly - layers are best so you can take some off if you get hot. You should wear solid footwear ideally with ankle support, trainers are ok. It is a good idea to take water to drink and a packed lunch.
Paragliding is a weather dependent sport; always call the centre either the day before or on the day of your course to check that the course is going ahead.
