Hello Fellow Flyer.

It's that time again, when the nights start drawing in, to make plans for the winter migration.

South India offers fantastic weather, lovely people, stunning scenery, delicious food, excellent value for money and is one of the nicest places we've flown.

Southern Spain Hang Gliding

You are invited to join our Hang Gliding holiday to Southern Spain. This trip is for all hang glider pilots including those with low airtime and current CP students. You will need your own glider, harness and helmet.
Other equipment recommended: alti/vario, reserve parachute and radio plus headset for communications.
Autumn in Southern Spain can provide some excellent flying conditions but please note it can be cold up on the mountains! We hope to achieve six full days of flying, however, even in sunny Spain, we may get poor weather.

[TRADE] Himalaya - XC flying

BOOK NOW, this trip will fill up! For our fourteenth year running, we are once more off to that most reliable and mellow thermal paradise, the green and luscious Indian Himalayan foothills.

Each year pilots with differing levels of experience, ranging from absolutely zero hours since qualifying to near Skygods come with us.

We always leave with experienced pilots and everyone always wants to go again. Most break all their personal bests! In 2011 we completed a 110 km out and return cross country flight, probably the longest guided group xc of all time...

Hang Gliding Lanzarote

A midwinter break for all levels of hang glider pilot. Superb volcanic scenery and the awesome Famara cliffs. We stay in villa accommodation near Puerto Del Carman. Hire cars provide access to the flying sites. Often too breezy for paragliders Lanzarote is perfect for hang gliding with magnificent coastal soaring and inland thermic flights with interesting convergence over the island.
Spaces are limited. Contact us ASAP to register interest.
