Training to obtain the Swiss Paragliding Licence (Paragliding Brevet):
Trial day (1 day)
Costs: CHF 100
You’re not sure if flying is for you? Then find out during a trial day. After a briefing and wing-handling and running exercises you will already take off during the trial day.
All the necessary paragliding equipment will be provided for the trial day.
The trial day can be continued in the basic course and the course fee for the trial day will be credited to you.
Basic course (4-5 days)
Costs: CHF 600
On the training hill you will learn the basic flying skills within 4-5 days. You will be able to perform smaller flights from day one.
Once you learned take-off preparation, take-off, flight and landing safely, it is time for your first high altitude flight.
All necessary paragliding equipment will be provided for the basic course.
High-altitude flights and theory
Any number of high-altitude flights during 1 year
Costs: CHF 1700
After the first high-altitude flights, you will perform flights in various flying areas as part of your high-altitude flight training (e.g. in Davos from the Jakobshorn, Parsenn and Schatzalp in Klosters from the Gotschna-Grat and Madrisa, in Prättigau: various areas around our training centre Grüsch/Fanas).
Now it is time to fly and train to get ready for the exam (at least 50 high-altitude flights are necessary for the exam).
Depending on the weather conditions you will perform up to 4-5 flights on a training day. You will be supervised by a flight instructor via radio.
Most of the flights are carried out with shuttle or cable car support. However, Hike&Fly is already an integral part of your training and we regularly offer Hike&Fly tours.
Your well-founded training also includes a theoretical part that prepares you for your flying career and the theoretical examination. The theory is divided into the following subjects: Aerodynamic, Meteorology, Legislation, Material science and Flight practice. The theory lessons are held on 5 evenings in our shop in Grüsch (optionally in Davos).
Not included in the indicated price are the costs for cable cars and shuttles.
For the first 10 high-altitude flights we provide the necessary paragliding material including the necessary pilot liability insurance.
If you buy your new material through us, you will be credited CHF 500 discount.
Organized by the Swiss Hang Gliding Association
To prove your acquired knowledge you have to pass a theory and a practical exam. The Swiss Hang Gliding Association (SHV) organizes the corresponding examination dates.
