How much does paragliding cost?

Paragliding is by far the most affordable flying sport. As soon as you have your own equipment and fly autonomously as licensed pilot, the cost stay very modest. And if you are so into it, it might cost you all your other good weather outdoor activities :-)

A complete equipment for your training phase - glider wing, harness and reserve - will cost you between CHF 3500 (second-hand) and about CHF 5500 (new).

All the transport costs related to the training amount to about CHF 500.- in total.

As soon as you are flying with your own equipment, you must have a third party liability insurance. Most pilots from Switzerland are insured through the collective insurance contract of the Swiss Hangliding Federation (SHV) at Generali, with a yearly fee of CHF 73.

The examination for the license, which has unlimited validity, consists in a theoretical exam followed by a practical exam. For each exam, the SHV collects a fee of CHF 125.

In some flying sites, there is a small fee for takeoff or landing, as a rule CHF 2 per flight or CHF 5 per day. This is how the clubs compensate the farmers for the use of their meadows where we takeoff or land. That's all.
