FAQ/Weather conditions.

Can I buy a flight voucher In winter and fly next spring/summer?

Yep 👍🏼 all of our flight vouchers are valid for 12 months, making them the perfect gift for someone special. You can purchase your voucher today and they can use it anytime in the next 12 months (weather permitting).

I have a value voucher code I’m trying to book with, how do I use it?

First off, make sure you’re using your Value Voucher code, and NOT your order reference number. Your value voucher code will start with a few letters. You need to pick a date you want to fly and then click REDEEM CODE.

When booking It is showing “There isn’t enough resources” what does this mean?

I’m afraid this means we don’t have enough spaces available on the date you’re trying to book for the amount of flights your booking.

Can I buy a flight voucher as a gift?

Yes you can! All you need to do is choose which flight length you’d like to gift:
A full length flight £140
A short taster flight £45
Then purchase the relative gift voucher from our homepage.

Where do you fly?

See our ‘Where we fly‘ page for a list of sites we fly.

Can I fly a specific site?

NO, the site we choose to fly on the day you book is determined by a number of different weather factors.

Can I cancel my flight last minute?

You will need to give us a minimum of 24 hours notice to cancel your booking. If you don’t, and cancel last minute (on the day you are booked to fly), you will need to pay a £50 cancellation fee to reschedule your flight for another day.

Is there a min/max age? Can you fly children?

The easy answer is no; we don’t have a minimum or maximum age to fly. So we can fly children, but they must weigh at least 40kg. For elderly people, they must be in good physical condition and be able to run on takeoff and landing. Also you are required to walk to the take off, sometimes around 20mins walk. So you must be in good physical health. One of our sites also involved climbing a small fence if we land at the bottom.

Is there a weight limit?

Yes, you MUST weigh between 40 and 100 kilogrammes (6.3 and 15.7 stone). If you are over 100kg and come to fly, you will be turned away without a refund, I’m afraid. Nothing personal, just basic physics.

How long is my flight voucher valid for?

12 months from purchase. After you purchase your voucher, you’ll receive an email (which might go into your junk file) where you can download your printable voucher.

Can I bring my own camera (GoPro eta)?

The short answer is yes, but you won’t be able to use a head or chest mount for flight safety reasons. We do offer in-flight filming and editing as an add-on service.

Do we offer skydiving?

No, we are a paragliding company. For skydiving, you’ll need to contact a DZ that offers skydiving.

What days/times do you fly?

During the British summer time GMT, we fly 7 days a week, until sunset (weather permitting). During the winter we fly weekends only.

Can we fly at a specific site at a specific time?

The short answer is, probably not. Paragliding is extremely weather dependent. The evening before your flight, we look at weather charts and find out what the wind speed and wind direction is. These are two very vital things in paragliding. We cannot fly if the winds are too strong (this can cause issues while launching/landing), we can also only fly hills where the wind is coming straight up the hill. For instance, if there is a Northerly wind on the day you book, we need to travel to a North facing hill to fly, same with other wind directions. Sunny weather doesn’t always mean safe flying conditions!

How often do flights get rescheduled?

This changes throughout the year, but we do reschedule flights from time to time, due to unsafe weather conditions. Please don’t be upset if your flight is rescheduled a few times, as this is for your own safety. Flying a paraglider in stormy/very windy conditions is not fun, trust me.

Can I still fly if I’m pregnant?

I’m afraid we are unable to fly any women that are pregnant, if you do become pregnant after you’ve purchased your flight, we will be happy to extend your voucher to a time after the birth. This is for the safety of you and your child.


When is comes to paragliding, the weather on the day you book is EVERYTHING.

The weather on the day may seem safe to the untrained eye, but we’re not just looking for a sunny day to fly, we also look at things like:

Air pressure, Cloud base height, Wind speed (big part of paragliding), Wind direction, Thermal updrafts, Future storms arriving, potential heavy rain. As a general rule of thumb, when talking about wind speed, If you can see the trees being thrown around in the town/valley/garden. Then most likely by the time we get to the top of the hill, on the take-off point, the wind speed is going to be too strong to safely launch.

The main part in tandem paragliding is ensuring the safety of our customers, and the weather plays a huge part in the decision whether to fly or to reschedule your flight. There is no “general safe flying conditions” in paragliding, as each site we fly will need different weather types. If you wanted to look at a forecast to see if we may be flying on a specific day, as a rule of thumb, any wind gusts (on the take off point) at/over around 16-18mph can be very dangerous to fly in. Remember we’re strapping ourselves to 40square meters of Nylon on the edge of a steep hill! Also remember, if the forecast is showing 15-16mph (Gusts) in a local town, that can sometimes be doubled by the time we’re on the top of the hill we’re flying from (30mph+!!!). Please don’t be upset if we need to reschedule your flight a number of times due to unsafe weather. We are professional paragliding pilots, with thousands of flight hours, each. If we’re saying it’s not safe to fly, it’s not safe. There’s a famous flying quote to reads, “It’s best to be on the ground, wishing you were in the air. Than being in the air, wishing you were on the ground”. We have a lot of customers asking to fly a specific paragliding site eg, Malvern. I’m afraid we can’t offer this as the site we choose to fly on the day you book is COMPLETLY determined by the weather on the day you have booked. For example, Selsley Common near Stroud (a great site to fly) will only be safe to fly when the wind direction is between NNW and NW, at a wind speed of around 10-14mph, Thermic days we can fly a calm (<8mph) NW wind. Where as Malvern will only be safe to fly when the wind direction is an Easterly, and no more than around 6-8mph at the bottom of the hill. If you’re interesting in learning more, please send us a WhatsApp, or chat on the hill.
