Thames Valley Hang Gliding Club

A BHPA Hang Gliding and Paragliding Club

Club Coach Course

We are hosting Club Coach Course over the weekend 14/15 Jan 2017.

This course normally costs £30 for new coaches and £20 for coaches re-attending (recommended every 5 years). However, due to the current shortage of coaches within TVHGC, the club will be absorbing the costs of the course; yes, it's FREE! :-)

Anyone may apply for the course, but to become a coach you will need to:
a) Be a BHPA Annual Flying Member.
b) Hold at least a CP rating with 10 hours (hill) or 50 flights (tow) logged since achieving CP.
c) Be recommended by his/her club. (Chief Coach and Chairman's signature required.)

There is a strict limit to the number of places available on the course and, as it is likely to be extremely popular, places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. So get your requests in to Nick Smith, who will be running the event, at  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Successful applicants will be notified. Venue is still TBD, but will be easily found within our patch.
