Paragliding Lessons

Learn to paraglide by taking lessons with Airways Airsports - one of the UK's most professionally run paragliding schools, offering paragliding courses in the Derbyshire Peak District in the Midlands.

A paraglider is an aircraft that is small enough to fit in the boot of your car, light enough to carry in a rucksack yet with the performance to keep you in the air for hours. Airways Airsports is a BHPA (British Hang Gliding and Paragliding Association) accredited paragliding school. We can offer you the quickest and easiest paragliding lessons to get you airborne as soon as possible as a solo pilot.

Paragliding Lessons

We offer every variation of paragliding training and paragliding tuition at our school; from paraglider tandem flights and beginner paragliding courses, to Club Pilot paragliding courses, conversion endorsements for hill flying, paramotoring and winch flying.

Each year at Airways Airsports, over 100 paragliding qualifications are achieved at our school by students ranging in age from 14 to 85, men and women from all walks of life.

You can train at your own speed, a day at a time, weekends or weekdays, or come for longer periods, as you wish.
