What's included

Txt me the key details of this experience

This is the shortest course we recommend as a true taste of our sport and comprises the first two days of the Elementary Pilot Certificate Course (the EPC). It includes some basic theory, pre-flight checks, site evaluation, launch/ground handling skills and as much flying as conditions allow. We meet at our centre at 10am and start the day with a coffee and an introductory talk. After this we sign you up as a member of the BHPA. This is obligatory as it gives you third party insurance. We do not include the cost of this in our course fee as there are several membership options depending on your circumstances and aspirations.
Even from early on day one you will be connected to the glider learning the basics of pre-flight checking and ground control. We then move on to simulated launches and landings before venturing onto a slope where you will first defy gravity!
What is achieved on an Intro course is obviously dependent on the weather and your level of fitness and progress, but you can expect to be making short solo hops on the first day.
On the second day we build on the basics learnt on day one and progress you higher up the slope to give you more airtime. By the end of the day you will have achieved a number of flights under the direct supervision of your instructor.
We like to keep the student to instructor ratio low to ensure a rapid, but above all, safe progression. At all times you will have either visual or radio contact with an instructor.
Even if you decide not to continue your training, we are sure you will go home feeling that you have really achieved something and the memory of flying one of these remarkable aircraft will be with you for a long time. If you do decide to continue, this course will have given you a taste of what is to come...
