TVHGC First Aid Course
The club regularly hosts an incident / first aid course. Our courses have all been delivered by Yomp, who have been fantastic! These have been adventure sports focussed incident / first aid courses with particular emphasis on paragliding related accidents.
The last course took place on a weekend in early October 2023, at Hamstead Marshall Village Hall. The course was open to all pilots! The course cost was around £300. Those members who joined TVHGC before 21st Sept the previous year were eligible to receive a 50% subsidy.
Feedback from attendees:
Clearly outshines any of the previous First Aid Courses
everything necessary for an allround First Aider
excellent series of scenario role plays brought the course material to life and opportunity to practice the skills
was very impressed with the whole weekend … content, delivery and scenarios

Big Fat Repack
The TVHGC Big Fat Repack is on once again for 2024. This incredibly valuable event will be held on Sunday, March 25th 2024 at Aldershot Garrison Sports Centre, Rawlinson Road, Aldershot
These events are a fantastic opportunity to:
Practice deploying your reserve, whilst sliding down a zip wire in your own harness
Learn about repacking your reserve during talks & demonstrations by BHPA-licensed packers
Repack your own reserve, paired up with other pilots, under the supervision of experienced packers
The BFR is the TVHGC's main safety event - a chance to discuss any flying safety concerns with other experienced pilots, coaches or committee members
The TVHGC BFR event gets booked up very quickly. Grab your place on the next event when you see the email.
The TVHGC offers support to pilots in the form of coaching courses that will provide them with tools to help support and develop fellow pilots. Coaches develop a wide range of knowledge within their discipline, allowing them to safely assist others, but it is important to remember that the role does not mean sacrificing your own flying needs.
Courses are open to all HG and PG pilots who hold a CP rating and a minimum of 10 hrs. They are 2 day weekend courses packed with activities, interactive discussions and talks. The BHPA course leaders will provide ongoing assessment throughout the course.
The event dates & details are:
Jan 13 - 14th. SW Wales.
Feb 10 -11th. Jersey.
