South Downs Hang Gliding is a British Hang Gliding and Paragliding Association (BHPA) registered school exclusively teaching hang gliding. We have over 25 years of continuous teaching of the sport, both here and abroad. Our instructors are all active hang glider pilots with advanced pilot ratings and full BHPA instructor licences. We have a wealth of experience to share with new pilots.
A first day's hang gliding is great fun for almost anybody. To complete a course you will need to be reasonably fit and active. Weight is no problem as the size range of our school gliders will suit anyone from 50kg to 125kg.
You must be over 18 and accept that all adventure sports carry an element of risk.
BHPA membership insures the student for third party risks and opens a log book to monitor progress through the syllabus. The first day of training can be completed on daily (£16) membership and is offered as a "One day Intro". To continue your training to EP level, you choose either 3 month "trial" membership at £84, or the full annual membership for £128.
