BHPA Registered SchoolsThe SE Wales Hang Gliding & Paragliding Club is a recreational club for qualified pilots.
Under the rules of the BHPA, the sport‘s UK Governing Body, recreational clubs are not allowed to offer hang gliding or paragliding instruction or tuition. If you‘re looking for someone to teach you to fly, or would like a trial flight to see if the sport is for you, please contact a BHPA registered school.
BHPA registered schools currently operating in SE Wales are listed below.
These schools offer a full range of paragliding and paramotoring courses, and employ qualified instructors licensed by BHPA. If you‘re interested in learning to fly a hang glider, or looking for details of registered paragliding schools operating in other areas, please visit the UK schools directory on the BHPA Web Site.
Whilst you are welcome to join the SE Wales Hang Gliding & Paragliding Club any time you like, I‘m afraid you won‘t be able to fly solo with other Club members until you‘ve obtained your Club Pilot rating at a BHPA registered school.

The training programme you‘ll follow will depend on your chosen wing, and the conditions prevailing on the day. But no matter which wing you choose, the goal is ultimately the same - to obtain your Club Pilot rating, and fly solo within the safe and friendly environment of a BHPA recreational club, such as the SE Wales Hang Gliding & Paragliding Club.
