WHAT WILL I LEARN?
This is an extremely fun course with lots of practical outdoor aspects and also some theory classes.
The first 1 or 2 days are spent on the training hill learning to take-off safely with a small amount of essential theory…
all with the aim of getting you flying solo as soon as possible.
You will then fairly quickly progress on to short solo flights learning a number of various skills in the air.
NEXT STEPS IN GAINING YOUR CERTIFICATION
The Elementary Pilot award is not a qualification but just a stepping stone in getting certified to fly unsupervised. To get certified to fly a paraglider and be able to get insured you need to then complete the Club Pilot course which is another 5-day course.
If you have the time you can also do the full 2 week EP and CP course which is the quickest and easiest way to learn to paraglide and finish with a qualification that allows you to fly unsupervised.
We GUARANTEE that you will complete your EP syllabus in under a week.
– From paragliding beginner to competently flying solo.
Our EP paragliding courses run every week of the summer from the end of May through to the end of September. Courses start every Monday. If you have booked accommodation, arrival days are every Sunday with departure the following Saturday.
– COURSE: 5 days of tuition and third party insurance.
– COURSE WITH ACCOMMODATION: 5 days tuition, 6 nights accommodation with breakfast, all transport by van or cable car, third party insurance.
– Personal accident insurance.
I can only thank the team for an excellent and highly professional EP course week – it was an amazing experience – from finally grasping my take off’s (Guy and Emmie have the patience of a saint.) and landing to the overall experience of the first flight. The professionalism and encouragement from the team was second to none in making the students feel comfortable and confident – a lot of people could learn from this in general industry…
