Tandem Hang Gliding Air Experience's this week in the UK


After the balmy heat wave the forecast is set to settle down with on-shore Westerly winds starting later today.

That means soaring conditions for Tandem Hang gliding flights in Woolacombe, North Devon on one of the south west's most spectacular coastline areas.

The synopsis shows a cold front moving through with winds coming from the West North West direction tomorrow.

Saturday is looking similar as well. Last week we have a great day on Monday - flying all day and into the evening.

Weather system moving through Saturday - watching Sunday


It has been a quite a dry May - we have managed to get in a few flights between the showers during the middle of the month.

Looking ahead - a weather front is moving through the South West on Saturday, so we are watching the winds behind that for Sunday. On the long range we have an on-shore breeze forecasted for Tuesday as well so get in touch if you are marked down for either of these days.

Weather changing Thursday - watching the weather from Friday


The High Pressure system which has dominated the weather pattern for 10 days is finally getting pushed out the way as an Atlantic Low brings rain and unsettled conditions Thursday evening. We will see what the pattern is after this has moved through to check for the Westerly winds which we need for Tandem Hang Gliding

Easterly winds until Monday so no Tandems until next week


We have some easterly winds on the forecast as a stationary high pressure sits over the UK. Unfortunately that is the wrong direction for Tandem Hang Gliding at Woolacombe.

We will provide an update at the weekend once the system moves through.

End of the week looking good for Tandem Hang Gliding


We have on-shore westerly winds forecast for Thursday and Friday in North Devon. Should be good for dual and tandem hang gliding flights. With views of Devon, Cornwall, Exmoor and Dartmoor it is a fantastic place to experience flying. Paragliding can also be seen when the winds is a bit lighter which is another form of free flying.

This pictues was taken from the Tandem group flights last weekend, and below was a lovely evening tandem the next day at Putsborough.
