BHPA Registered Schools will train you at a rate of progress that is suitable for you.

They are monitored for safety and the quality of the training they offer and the equipment they use, and their instructors are licensed by the Association.

A UK wide network of BHPA recreational clubs look after flying sites in their area, and offer guidance and assistance to qualified pilots at a local level.
