CP Completion Course Overview

Paragliding is a great sport but the frustration often suffered by enthusiastic new EP pilots desperately trying to get through the pilot rating system to CP is almost palpable. If it is not the "good old" British weather that causes delay after delay it is the problem of finding a paragliding school that isn't booked solid, trying to shift their backlog of students. Here in France we offer CP completion courses at La Motte du Caire, in the Alpes de Haute Provence, where it is normally flyable and the sun shines most of the time. Once you have completed all the required tasks you can sit your BHPA CP/Novice exam on the spot and return home a qualified CP Pilot.

The CP Course

This course is all about airtime. We fly every day building up the hours and experience you need to paraglide safely with other pilots. Our sites are not crowded and are perfect for soaring and completing all the manoeuvres needed including your deflations, slow flying, top and spot landings. We expect you to study each evening for about 30 minutes in order to grasp the theory needed to pass the CP exam once all your tasks are completed. We aim to give you experience of 3 different sites during your stay to give a better understanding of flying conditions as they vary from place to place.

Once you have completed the tasks and made it to BHPA CP/Novice level we continue flying with any remaining time, to ensure that you gain as much airtime as possible during your stay with us. An average EP pilot, in a week might normally expect to get about 8 - 15 hours of soaring, depending, of course upon the individual pilots ability and the prevailing conditions. How long will it take for you to get that much soaring in the UK?

Once you have completed this course you can come back to us, learn thermalling and work towards gaining the hours needed for Pilot rating.
