Pilot Development and Refresher Training

As well as offering EP and CP training, we also offer training up to Pilot Rating and Cross Country Fly Guiding for qualified pilots. This training is also useful to pilots who have had a break from the sport and would like guidance before going back into the wild on their own.

The BHPA Pilot Development Structure

You will be able to join us whenever we are ground handling, or running CP training days, as well as specific Pilot Training or XC Days. You’ll receive our instruction and mentoring, as well as detailed weather briefings. Our system will allow you to complete your pilot tasks safely, working through the Pilot Development Structure and with the aim of understanding the practical application of these tasks in the real world.

You’ll also be welcome to attend our theory sessions on Air Law, Meteorology and Flight Theory/Instruments. We’ll even organize and invigilate your pilot exam.

All our training is completely customised to what you need or want, following an initial conversation with our instructional team. You’ll be expected to be a BHPA member and fly your own equipment, which we can of course provide through our shop.

The cost of the Pilot Development Course is £500 which will allow you fly with us on any suitable day, attend all the theory lessons and take your exam. If you only require some refresher training, or a shorter period of training, this is also available for £150 per day.
