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

The following Club Coach Courses will be held in 2016/17. Please note that the club coach course fee is now £30 per participant, and £20 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.

If you require further information or would like to book a place on any of the confirmed coach courses shown below, please email or telephone the contact shown for that particular course. Courses marked with ** will only run if we have sufficient numbers wishing to attend.

Please contact Stephanie Blankley at the BHPA office (tel 0116 289 4316) if you are interested in hosting a club coach course on one of the available dates shown below.
