'The beauty about Paragliding is that you never stop learning.'

With flying we are always developing and learning. There is so much to discover and see. Helping you do this in a safe and encouraging environment is what Paragliding Guide is all about. As a BHPA Development School we support Club Pilots through the BHPA Pilot Rating Scheme.

Pilot Rating Scheme

The PRS has been devised to encourage pilots to continue to improve their personal flying skills, and provides a pathway to develop the appropriate skills to complete the required tasks to progress from Club Pilot to Pilot to Advanced Pilot.
