Skydiving courses organized by the Swiss Air Force, so called SPHAIR courses, (SPHAIR >> Exploring Aviation Talent) are meant for young Swiss, 16-18 years, to get their license before their military service in a special forces unit, the "Fallschirmaufklärer Kp 17". The boys qualified for these courses will have the possibility to participate two times 2 weeks, to learn the basics of skydiving. The objective is to get the Swiss license during the second course. 
The fees for these courses are mostly paid by the Swiss Air Foce, therefore this is a good chance for a young person to get the skydiving or flying license. The course fee at Para Centro for these courses is about CHF 500.- for board and lodging during these 2 weeks.

As the Magadino Airport is the home of the military Parachuting school as well, you will find yourselves in a familiar surroundings, once you completed your license at Para Centro Locarno.
