Experience the joy of flight
Airways Airsports gives you the opportunity to experience the joy of flight, whether you want a day-out to remember or want to learn to fly with the experts.
We offer the following airsports, Paragliding, Hang gliding, Paramotoring, Microlighting (in flex-wing and sports light aircraft) and kiting and kite surfing. We are a Flight School with over 20 years of experience.
Airways Airsports is run by pilots who are committed to sharing their love of flying with anyone wanting to learn to paraglide, hang glide, paramotor or microlight. Our instructors range from a three-times World Champion, World Record holders, British Cross Country Champion, British Distance Record Holder, Royal Aeroclub Gold Medal winner and former members of the British Hang Gliding and Paragliding Teams.
We fly from our own airfield at Darley Moor on the edge of Ashbourne in Derbyshire. Our clubhouse has comfortable seating and a café selling home-made food and drinks. Our viewing platform gives you a commanding view of the airfield where you can watch what’s going on with a cuppa in hand.
Come and experience what its like to be in the air in a paraglider but with the reassurance of a highly experienced, BHPA qualified instructor.
Learn to Paramotor in Derbyshire and the Midlands – it has never been easier. Our one day paramotor course is aimed at people who want to try out the exciting sport of paramotoring.
The flex-wing microlight is what most people think of when the talking about microlights. Our pilots will help you to soar above the Derbyshire hills.
They look like a conventional small plane but these lightweight fixed wing microlights give you the thrill of micro lighting with the comfort of a plane.
Buy someone special a flying gift voucher for one of our activities and give them an experience they will never forget.
Whether you're an aviator, walker, cyclist, or just a lover of being away from the usual hustle and bustle of life, Airways Gliding Club has something for you.
