Paragliding, Hang gliding, Paramotor and Microlight School offering courses and tuition

Paragliding  Learn to paraglide with Airways Airsports - one of the UK's most successful paragliding schools, running paragliding courses in Derbyshire.  Our team of professional, enthusiastic and highly experienced instructors offer every variation of paragliding training and paragliding tuition; from paraglider tandem flights and beginner paragliding courses, to Club Pilot paragliding courses, conversion endorsements for hill flying, paramotoring and winch flying.  

Hang Gliding is the nearest we can come to flying like a bird.  Chosen by Blue Peter to teach Matt Baker to fly, Airways Airsports is a great place to experience hang gliding.   Flying face down, with the wing above you, letting the movement of your body steer you around the sky - the feeling is exhillarating and unique.  Take a tandem flight to 3,000 feet, with three times World Champion, Judy Leden MBE.
