YOU in the cockpit!
This experience will last a total of approx. 5 days. (We don't compromise on your time in the air. When comparing us with others, check the small print and the time actually spent in the air.)
The EP course is designed to bring the complete beginner up to the accredited BHPA level of Elementary Pilot.
At the end of the course the pilot should be capable of site selection, weather assesment, self launch and adequate flight planning to perform a flight with turns and a landing within a designated area.
The classroom work comprises theory sessions on flight theory, meteorology and airlaw. Your knowledge will be tested with a short multiple choice exam at the end of the course.
By the end of the course you should have experienced the truly wonderful sensation of floating high above the ground with our stunning scenery laid out before you. Certainly, you will know whether you have the desire and ability to progress on to the CP course where soaring and top landing skills will be added to your repertoire.
Once you have achieved this level you are also able to purchase your first paraglider on which you can complete your training.
All paragliding equipment is supplied for the course, you just need to bring adequate clothing and good, ankle supporting footwear - and a packed lunch.
The length of this course varies depending on your luck with the weather and your performance, but is normally 5 days; 4 days on the hill and 1 day in the classroom. However, once this course is paid for we will bring you to EP level regardless of the days needed (within reason!).
Cost of BHPA membership is not included in the cost of this course as there are several membership options depending on your circumstances and aspirations. From 10 UKP per day.
