The Ecole de Parachutisme de Château d'Oex (EPCO) was the first Swiss school offering all jumps at 4'000 meters/GND.

All foreign licenses from the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale (FAI) member countries are accepted. If the insurance coverage from the country of origin does no correspond to Swiss minimum standards, a temporary insurance will be required.

One exception - Swiss parachutists must have a Swiss license. If this is not the case, they are considered as students and must complete the tests and exams in order to obtain the Swiss license.

It is possible to rent equipment from EPCO. We have 20 rigs Javelin, Vector, Advance or Icon with Performances Design (Silhouette 170 - 230, Navigator 220-260), Basik (X-Fun 230) or Aerodyne (Solo 270) canopies. All of our equipment includes a Cypres or a Vigil.
