As a current speed rider, I have no qualifications for either speedriding or paragliding (although i have done speed riding courses), given that I have no paragliding qualifications would I first have to attain my paragliding qualifications to then get this swiss speed riding extension to then be able to speed ride in switzerland? If so would I need the elementary or club pilot qualification?


Yes, would need CP paragliding qualification first or the Swiss equivalent before taking the speedriding extension course.

Also, what are peoples opinions on the likeliness of these rules spreading to France/Italy etc.?

Thanks for your help,

Yes, PG + Speed-Flying extension is also required.

I guess this is just local site rules and means that a PG licence with Speedfly extension is still required to fly in Switzerland? Can anyone clarify this?
