Hang Gliding Courses and Costs

Tandem Flight.......................................................£199

The flight of a lifetime and by far our most popular experience flight. You will lie in a harness, alongside one of our very experienced instructors, in a tandem hang glider. You will be towed aloft by a microlight tug up to 3,000 feet above the airfield. Your instructor will then release the tow line, then you can either fly the hang glider yourself or simply enjoy the view. (see video below of a tandem hang gliding flight up to 3000ft).

Hang Gliding & Paragliding in Derbyshire

 

Power conversion course..........................£ 299 - £ 599

Once you have your CPC (winch) and/or (hill) your power rating is a straightforward step. The short conversion course is half price (£299) if you purchase your equipment from us or if you have learned to fly with us.

Winch conversion.................................................£189

An extra rating for established hang glider pilots. This course generally takes 2 days and the price includes 10 tows which is all you usually need to get the qualification. You can stay on for additional tows from £2 each.

Aerotow conversion.......................................from £349

Aerotow tuition for existing hang glider pilots who already hold their Pilot rating. The price includes your first flight, which is a tandem with one of our instructors, plus seven solo flights (minimum number of flights for BHPA qualification is 8 aerotows). Any additional aerotows needed to attain the rating are charged at our normal aerotow price.

By the day or by the flight

Each tandem aerotow instruction flight costs £120. A "refresher day" for hang gliding on the winch is £149. Whatever your needs and whatever stage you are at, please call the office on 01335 344 308 and talk to one of our experienced instructors who will discuss your individual requirements with you.
