REASONS TO CHOOSE US
HIGHEST TEACHING STANDARDS WORLDWIDE
We are an FSVL and OFAC approved and accredited paragliding school: Being based in Switzerland necessitates that we are governed by the Swiss Civil Aviation Authorities which means that as a paragliding school we are regulated with the strictest and highest standards of teaching in the World. This also enables us to offer British BHPA courses and qualifications which are recognized worldwide as well as FSVL courses for Swiss residents who are required to have a Swiss license to fly in Switzerland.
WE ARE THE ONLY BHPA SCHOOL IN THE WORLD TO BE GOVERNED BY OFAC
Only BHPA school in the world to be governed by OFAC, the Swiss Civil Aviation Authorities. This means that your Chief Flying Instructor is not only a BHPA Senior Instructor but also a Swiss OFAC and FSVL Instructor. We are also one of the few BHPA paragliding schools based on mainland Europe which means that not only do we have another strict governing body’s rules to abide by, but it also means that we can certify pilots with a BHPA paragliding license.
For people wishing to learn to paraglide this is great news as it is the fastest and simplest way to get certified. However, unlike any other BHPA school in the world, we are the only one who is also regulated by OFAC as well. For us, this means more regulations but for you means maximum safety measures have been put in place.
OUR WEATHER CONDITIONS
Possibly the best Flying conditions in Europe. Boasting over 300 flyable days a year and top to bottoms of up to 1700m we are able to offer you maximum airtime.
VALUE FOR MONEY

We hire the best guides and instructors, we use high-quality equipment and our accommodation is first class. Also, don’t forget that all transport including cable car passes is included in our fly-guide and course packages.
