Busy summer Tandem Hang Gliding - Autumn looks good for Sea Thermals

08-09-2017

We have had a busy summer Tandem Hang Gliding in Devon. For those looking for adventure and adrenaline, the experience of free flight is awesome! Using both our sites at Woolacombe and Putsborough we have been getting fantastic views of the Atlantic Ocean as well as Exmoor, Dartmoor and the neighbouring counties of Cornwall and Somerset in the distance.

Looking ahead September, October and November are great months for flying. The sea temperature is holding around 15 degrees so as the land continues to cool we have perfect conditions for warm air getting pushed up over the coastline to provide great lift for soaring.

The long range forecast isn't too promising for flying. The jet stream has shifted, bringing in periods of warm fronts and the accompanying rain with it. We are watching ahead after the 7th August to see if the conditions will change on the August synopsis.

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

21-06-2017

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

25-05-2017

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.
