The importance of this cannot be underestimated, we make every effort to ensure every trainee gets uncluttered airspace to develop and hone their flying skills at a steady, safe and uninterrupted pace.

Like the performance of many birds, paragliders can soar like eagles, for hundreds of kilometers, on currents of rising air. Paragliders can fly cross country for over 400km and fly to heights of over 15,000 feet. On your first paragliding lesson we aim to get you flying solo in a day.
Learning to paraglide will require determination and effort, but the rewards are soon realised, and your first low, ground skimming flight will give you a tantalising glimpse of your future potential...Book now on one of our paragliding courses.
