Hang Gliding BBC 2 Coastal Path - North Devon


Just aired tonight on BBC 2. Here is the clip in case you missed it. Paul get's to "Fly Like a Bird".


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


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


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.
