According national legislation, paragliding free flight requires a specific license.

The attribution of a paragliding pilot license is responsibility of the Portuguese Free Flight Federation (FPVL) by delegation of the National Civil Aviation Authority (ANAC) and the Portuguese Institute of Sport and Youth, IPDJ.

UonAir paragliding school is part of the FPVL and its instructors are duly qualified and recognized by the FPVL, having extensive experience, both as pilots and instructors.

As a student and as a pilot it is necessary to have sports insurance. UonAir in collaboration with the Portuguese Free Flight Federation has a protocol with an insurance company that ensures this requirement.

Paragliding Free flight in Portugal is divided into two levels, but only level 1 is mandatory. Upon completing the first level, the pilot is able to fly paragliding. The second stage is classified as improvement and is not mandatory, enabling the pilot to perform advanced mountain flight (thermal and distance flight – XC – Cross Country).

UonAir – Paragliding School – provides all the necessary equipment for the Level I pilot course.
