We Teach All Year Round, with the exception of TANDEM FLIGHTS, which close from mid-September to late April each year, as the extended high flights we aim to give tandem customers depend on thermic conditions not usually found over the winter. Tandem vouchers which would normally expire during our “closed season” are automatically extended by the appropriate duration.
Paragliding is weather dependent – If we need to call off your course, we will contact you in advance – usually by text, and generally the afternoon or evening before your booking. We reserve the right to cancel at any time for reasons of safety or comfort – the senior instructor’s decision is final. Credit will be carried forward to your next booking and no refunds will be given. Cancelled days do not automatically roll over to the next day; you will need to re-book your next session.
Who can fly? Anyone over 16 – there is no upper age restriction. Please note that under 18s will need parental permission or to be accompanied by a parent. You only need to be averagely fit – there is little strength involved in paragliding, but walking up hills and carrying kit can be mildly demanding. We don’t require a medical certificate, although anyone with medical problems should think twice about flying – if you have any doubts, give us a call. Be aware that it is a risk sport, and take this risk “on board”. If the possibility – however remote – of personal injury due to indulging in a sport is unacceptable, then paragliding is not for you.

Meeting and Admin. If you are booked on a course, we normally begin the day by meeting at Sussex Beauty spot Devil’s Dyke at 09.30am – [map and directions here]. If you are booked for a TANDEM FLIGHT, we ask you to liaise with your instructor in advance of the booked day. Please be punctual. We will inform you by mobile ‘phone or email if there are any changes.

Opening for Courses – Although we close for a summer trip and over xmas/new year, courses run year round! Weather conditions over winter and spring can often offer ideal conditions for beginners.

Opening for Tandem Flights – Tandem flights close from mid September to late April each year as the extended high flights we aim to give to tandem customers depend on thermic conditions not usually found over the winter. Naturally we extend tandem voucher expiry time to give you a full 6 months usage.
