Important Notice

Due to the outbreak of coronavirus, we have reluctanctly decided to cease all operations for the time being. We will continually review our operation in response to events and published guidelines – so look out here for changes.

The current position is this:

  • Trial Lessons already booked and due to be flown before 2 May 2020 are now cancelled. We will endeavour to contact voucher holders to make alternative arrangements. If you have not heard from us, please contact the office.
  • Vouchers for Trial Lessons, due to expire after 17 March 2020 and before 10 September 2020 will be valid for flights until 11 September 2020.
  • Training Courses are under review, and attendees will be contacted as required.
  • We will not be able to take new bookings until further notice – obviously we want to schedule our existing customers, so that they can fly as soon as possible.

We look forward to meeting and flying with you as soon as it is practicable.

Ridge, Thermal and Wave all from one unique site! Why not come along as a group on a week long expedition… 

Uniquely situated in the heart of the stunning Peak District National Park, we have ridges that can be explored in most wind directions and the Pennines can also kick off wave in almost any direction. Just ask our senior pilots about flying round the “lump” to Matlock!

Better still – try it on our simulator first…..
