Club to Host Coaching Course

The British Hang Gliding and Paragliding Association Club Coaching Course is a two day course run over a weekend by BHPA Technical Officers and is designed to train paraglider and hang glider pilots to help others in the sport with various aspects of their flying in an informal club environment.

The course costs £30 for first time attendees and £20 for those who have attended a club coaching course before. The course is aimed at pilots holding a Club Pilot rating or higher with 10 hours logged post CP. Having said that, anyone is welcome to attend the course upon payment of the fee. However, if you are not CP+10 rated then you will not be eligible to be awarded the rating of Club Coach.

The course runs from 9.30am to 5.00pm on Saturday 9th March 2018 and from 9.30am to 4.30pm on Sunday 10th March. For further information and to reserve your place, please either complete the contact form on our website at or e-mail – we welcome pilots from other clubs as well as our own club members.

We plan to hold the course at the Creg Ny Baa Pub. This is the venue for our monthly social meetings and they have good conference facilities so this will be suitable for our needs.

Travel to the Isle of Man involves a ferry crossing (vehicle or foot passenger) from Heysham (the Liverpool ferries don’t run until the end of March). Alternatively, you can fly from a number of regional airports.

Please get in touch if you have any queries or if you would like to reserve a place. We currently have capacity for around 10 more attendees so if you know any others who may like to attend then please spread the word.
