First aid refresher training for tandem paragliding pilots

refresh your first aid training!

Fortunately, few accidents happen with tandem flights. But shit happens! Are up to handle the situation of emergency? Are you able to react correctly in the event of a possible heart attack? Do you know where the nearest defibrator is? How does the alert work here in Switzerland and what should you pay special attention in the case of a helicopter rescue?

In the refresher training we challenge you in challenging emergency scenarios that will demand a lot of attention from you. You will learn to keep track of things in practical exercises and to draw your attention to the important aspects of emergency management. In this way, you will learn how to successfully provide first aid in an action-oriented manner and - if necessary - to alert the emergency services correctly.

With special attention to emergency management with guests

Compared to the classic first aid trainings, the focus of this refresher is on accidents that can occur while accompanying guests on the way to the take-off site, during take-off or landing. You are quickly called upon to provide assistance and patient care until the rescue team arrive and at the same time take care of the other passengers.

Therefore, the following topics are considered and practiced in the course in addition:

• Emergency management in the event of accidents thanks to a clear algorithm

• Dealing with groups in emergency situations

• Proper delegation of tasks, including to guests

• First aid outdoor equipment for pilots


Including BLS-AED-SRC certificate (Generic Provider)

All parts of the BLS-AED (Generic Provider) refresher course are taught by SRC-certified instructors. After completing the course, all participants receive a BLS-AED ID card certified by the Swiss Resuscitation Council (SRC). The certificate is valid for two years.
