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.

In the meantime you can see some great photos of Tandem Hang Gliding in Devon during spring here: https://www.facebook.com/2Flylikeabird

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.

Fun tandems last week - looking good from Sunday onwards


We had some great fun flying the Tandem Hang Glider over the south-west last week. The North Devon Coastline is a great place for Air Experience flights - both Woolacombe and Putsborough hills were used and we had a blast flying high in the sky.

Looking ahead Sunday through to Tuesday is forecasting on-shore westerly winds so if you are booked in get in touch!

Closed from 11th March to 20th March


We are closed from the 11th March through to the 20th March - a trip to Lanzarote for some slightly warmer weather!

We will return your calls and emails on the 20th and we will be ready to start flying the Tandems again from the 23rd onwards.

Enjoy the weather - it is starting to look a lot like spring now on the long range forecast!
