Paragliding is a unique way to soar peacefully and freely with the birds. You are completely self sufficient from take off to landing and all your equipment fits in a rucksack and can easily be carried on your back and fits easily in a family sized car luggage compartment. Despite not having an engine it is possible to soar freely for hours and over long distances gaining thousands of meters altitude simply using nature as birds do by rising currents of air.

Paragliding was thought up in the 1980’s initially with low performance Ram Air Parachutes, enabling the flyer to take off from Mountains and Hills to maintain their airtime. Over time with advances in technologies, materials and with the use of Computer Aided design (CAD) we can fly aerodynamic, efficient and safe paragliders.

At Fly High Sky Sports we offer taster lessons through to EPPA Pilot certification.
