BHPA Courses

The BHPA courses listed on this page are for qualified pilots. If you want to learn to fly a hang glider or paraglider, please visit our registered schools page.

Coach Courses
Please note that the club coach course fee is now £35 per participant, and £25 for a retake.

Existing coaches are reminded that the BHPA now operates a system of Coach Revalidation, and that FSC recommends that coaches re-attend a Coach Course at least every five years to ensure that nothing gets forgotten, and that they are fully up-to-date with current thinking.
