TVHGC First Aid Course
The club hosted our second first aid course and the first of 2022 mid February . As with our previous offering, the course was delivered by Yomp, who were fantastic! This is an adventure sports focussed first aid course with particular emphasis on paragliding related accidents.
The course took place on the weekend of 19th February 2022, at a venue near Petersfield. Overnight accommodation, meals and travel are at your own expense. The course was open to all pilots! The course cost £290. Those members who joined TVHGC before 21st Sept 2021 received a 50% subsidy.
Feedback from attendees:
Clearly outshines any of the previous 1st Aid Courses
everything necessary for an allround 1st 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 returned!!! This incredibly valuable event was held on March 5th 2022 at Aldershot Garrison Sports Centre, Rawlinson Road, Aldershot
This was a fantastic opportunity to:
Practice deploying your reserve, whilst sliding down a zip wire in your own harness
Learn to repack it during a talk & demonstration by BHPA-licensed packers Gregory Emms & Mark Luscombe
Repack your own reserve, paired up with another pilot, 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/
TVHGC are delighted to offer a Coaching Course that will provide you 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.
The course is open to all HG and PG pilots who hold a CP rating and a minimum of 10 hrs. It is a 2 day weekend course packed with activities, interactive discussions and talks. The BHPA course leaders will provide ongoing assessment throughout the course.
The event dates & details are:
The weekend of the 2nd & 3rd April 2022. Arrive 9:15 for a 9:30 start
