We are based in Arran and run courses abroad. We have run courses from Hong Kong to Outer Mongolia and have spent a lot of winters teaching paragliding in Nepal in the Himalayas. We are looking for our next winter flying destination.
Funday / Tandem flights
Paragliding - Tandem Flight or Funday Solo
Book then pay on the day.
Choose Funday or Tandem flight with an instructor depending on what is best for the weather and flying site on the day. If you have a preference tell us when you book. The price includes BHPA membership.
Weather: Paragliding is very weather dependent, it needs to be dry and the wind beneath 16mph. You book a day then phone the day before and again in the morning to check on weather conditions. We cancel if the weather looks unsuitable and reschedule for another day. You need patience and no refunds can be given. Paragliding is very weather dependant - pay on the day instead of buying a voucher.
The Isle of Arran has over 30 flying sites taking all wind directions.
