Aerotow conversion

We are able to offer aerotow conversion training to suitably qualified club members. At present you need to be at least Club Pilot rated plus a minimum of 10 hours to do an aerotow conversion in a club. Two members successfully completed their aerotow conversion flights in 2018, one in 2019 and another six are currently undertaking training in 2020. Contact us if you are interested.

Aerotow experience tandem flight

We are now to offer tandem aerotow flights to people who are interested in experiencing hang gliding. On a tandem flight you will be with an experienced pilot who will fly the hang glider as it is towed up. The experience of flying at over 1000ft above East Anglia is not to be missed!

Learn to hang glide

Although we cannot train people who have never tried to hang glide before we are in close contact with hang gliding schools who can and we are happy to provide advice to anyone who is interested. The British Hang Gliding and Paragliding Association has a wealth of information on how to learn to hang glide. Feel free to contact us if you are interested.

Disabled pilots

Many people may think that flying hang gliders is impossible for people with disabilities. Nothing could be further from the truth. We are working with Flyability to help disabled people experience hang gliding, and to help suitably qualified disabled pilots to aerotow.
