Learning to Paraglide


Have you ever dreamed of soaring like a bird?

Airworks can make that dream a reality. Paragliding can be enjoyed by people of any age - you can learn to paraglide in as little as ten days and they don’t have to be consecutive days, you can spread the training over several weekends or whatever best suits you.

With our expert tuition you will quickly develop the technique to become a competent pilot; strength is not a requirement. We have private sites covering all wind directions, ideal for the early days.

Our Club Pilot training includes the top landing and slope landing skills rarely taught abroad but required to fly safely in the UK.

Please Note: Lessons do not have to be taken on consecutive days and may take more or less days than stated, depending on the individual's ability. It is advisable not to leave too much time between lessons, as progression through your course will be detrimentally affected.
