A GUIDE TO PARAGLIDING IN and AROUND LONDON
Over 90% of our students come from London and the surrounding area such as Middlesex, Essex, Hertfordshire and
Surrey. Once Club Pilot,
many will join The Southern Hang gliding, Skysurfers or
Thames Valley Clubs, this allows them to fly sites from North west London to the South coast offering some of the best paragliding in the UK.
To fly or learn to fly a paraglider in London would not be permitted as it is a built up area.
Heathrow Airport to the west along with Luton and Stanstead to the North,
all have large exclusion zones.
To foot launch a paraglider requires hills and
our unique private paragliding sites are situated just off the A27
north of Brighton in the stunning South Downs
National park. We normally meet a Shoreham Airport at
9.30am, which gives you time when travelling from London
and from there it is a short drive to our sites
London is just 50 minutes
by car and with a regular train service
operating from Victoria and Waterloo to Shoreham By Sea Station
its just a short walk from our base at Shoreham Airport.
Although most of our students will travel from London each
day, during the summer you may prefer to stay locally while
on a paragliding course and there are a selection of good B
and Bs and camp sites very close to our training sites.
