COMPLETE BEGINNER TO QUALIFIED PARAGLIDER PILOT
This comprehensive syllabus combines the EP & CP courses and will take you from your first steps in learning to fly through to being a qualified and confident pilot. This is a British qualification equivalent to international level 3.
Our location allows you to take advantage of the excellent weather conditions and high mountains of Switzerland for maximum airtime! With over 300 flyable days a year, you couldn't learn to fly in a better location.
Many students struggle with the climate or terrain in their home country when 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.
From complete beginner to getting a paragliding license.
We can organize that your Club Pilot Licence is accompanied by an International Proficiency card level that it is recognized worldwide. Swiss residents will need to complete our FSVL course in order to fly in Switzerland.
Our combined Elementary and Club Pilot paragliding courses run every week of the summer from Monday to Friday with a weekend to rest in the middle, from the end of May through to the end of September. Arrival days are every Sunday with courses starting every Monday morning.

– Third-party insurance is included (but all students are required to have personal accident insurance prior to starting the course).
"We arrived at Verbier-Summits paragliding school with absolutely zero experience, not even a tandem flight. We like to challenge ourselves, expanding the boundaries of our experience and paragliding looked like an amazing thing to do... The twins, Mike and Stu, are clearly top-notch paragliders. They have a highly professional, calm, non-stressful demeanour which is very conducive to teaching."
