How to Become a Paragliding Instructor

If you’d like to become a paragliding instructor, whether you’re starting out on your professional career or making a lifestyle change, the first step is to register for the selection tests organized by ENSA for entry to the DEJEPS Vol Libre training program.

Registering for these tests is necessary, but not in itself sufficient, as they have to be passed! To put you in the best possible conditions, Aquilae – Performance Paragliding Academy is launching its support program to prepare you from the beginning of May until September 12, 2021, the start date of the selection tests.

Here are the details of the 2021 program, adapted to the current health situation:

For the duration of the coaching and during the selection test period, in addition to the above program, you’ll have our support by phone and e-mail. And as we are registered as a professional training organization with the Prefecture, you’ll be able to find funding to cover the cost of our service.
