According to national legislation, paragliding requires a specific license.

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

The UonAir paragliding school is a member of the FPVL and its instructors are duly qualified and recognized by the FPVL and have extensive experience, both as pilots and instructors.

As a student and as a pilot, you must have sports insurance. UonAir, in collaboration with the Portuguese Free Flight Federation, has a protocol with an insurance company that guarantees this requirement.
