Parapente Flying School
25, Jodrell Street,Newmills, High Peak,, Bakewell, SK22 3HJ     Phone : +44 (0)1663 747513

At Parapente paragliding school we have been teaching people to fly since 1987, being one of the oldest established hill launch schools in The Derbyshire Peak District. Our school is located in Newmills, Derbyshire. {Only 30mins from Manchester, 1 hour from Liverpool, 1 1/2hours from Birmingham, 30mins from Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, 45mins from Nottingham, 45mins from Chesterfield, 40mins from Sheffield and 20mins from Macclesfield Cheshire.} The friendly atmosphere and excellent teaching means you will enjoy fulfilling your dream of learning to fly.

You will begin your course by being shown what a paraglider is and how it works. This will be combined with an introduction to the complexities of meteorology and air movement so that you know when and where to fly. Then it's off to the hills for the practical airborne sessions. Teaching is progressive, learning how to control the paraglider on the ground before moving on to low level 'hops'. Only when these skills have been mastered will you move further up the hill to make higher and longer flights. You will fly with a radio so that your instructor can coach you, ensuring that you progress safely. Starting from straightforward downhill flights, you can soon move on to soaring above a ridge using the prevailing wind, then progress to thermal flying and travelling cross country. We will teach you - it is as simple as that!
