Club Pilot (CP) is the BHPA level of competence required to fly without direct instruction, within a club environment. By the end of the CPC, you will be able to:

Ground handle - inflate and control your paraglider on the ground in the full range of flyable wind conditions
Take-off and land in the full range of flyable wind conditions, from light to moderately strong winds
Use your canopy's full range of airspeed appropriately
Make 180 degree turns
Carry out hill-side and top landings
Fly safely with other pilots
Demonstrate understanding of the concept of "active flying"
Deal with small asymmetric tucks and carry out the "big ears" rapid descent technique
Pass the CP theory exam.

You will also have at least 30 minutes of soaring flights and will have gained further theoretical knowledge of Meteorology, Principles of Flight, Air Law and General Airmanship. Most importantly, you will have shown your instructors that that you have a sufficiently responsible attitude to paragliding to leave the school environment without posing an unacceptable risk to yourself or others.

Once you are CP qualified, you can join a local BHPA club (or clubs) and fly on their sites. Clubs cannot train you any further but the BHPA club coaching system has been devised to help you progress.
