Discovery Group Training Weekend

font size:

Members of the British Paramotor Squad will be holding a Discovery Group Training Weekend at Challow Paramotor Club on Saturday 25 and Sunday 26 of May (with Monday 27th as a weather reserve). The idea of the Discovery Group is for newbies to the competition scene to have a taster session of flying at a competition, but without the pressure of competing against more experienced pilots under strict rules.

We will be covering precision navigation using Ordnance Survey maps, compass and stopwatch, plus spot landings.   Squad members will pass on tips about map board construction, time and distance calculations, strategy etc.  Cross-country navigation tasks will be set around the local area and pilots are allowed to use GPS as a backup, both for the training weekend and at the Comp.  The event is open to Club non-members who hold current BHPA Pilot with Power environment and will cost £30.  Camping is available.  Spaces are limited and applications for places will close at midnight on Saturday 18th May 19.

For more details please contact challowppg[AT]gmail.com  substituting the AT with @ using ‘Discovery Training’ in the subject line.
