Learn to Paraglide in the UK
The Yorkshire Dales and surrounding areas have some of the best Paragliding sites in the UK. The rolling hills and open moors provide gentle slopes and unobstructed landscapes for teaching beginners. In contrast, long ridges and beautiful countryside offer the perfect setting for soaring and cross country flight. There's something surreal about flying over this green and stunning landscape; a privilege that so few experience.
Active Edge uses many of its own un-crowded sites and some of the local Paragliding club sites. These are carefully selected to provide a high level of safety, accessibility, and space in which to train. We operate in the Yorkshire Dales seven days a week. Most of our sites are around the Settle/Ingleton area allowing easy access from the north of England and Scottish borders.
We teach in small groups of 2-6 students and pride ourselves on tailoring our training programs to meet the individual needs of our student pilots. The courses are very flexible; this allows students to progress at their own pace. Training at times which are convenient for them. Our practices follow the BHPA syllabus; students will stay in the school until all BHPA requirements are met. The instructor is satisfied that the pilot is competent and knowledgeable enough to fly safely without supervision.
