Easter Fly In :    It's on again! The Skyhigh Easter Fly-in . a must for all pilots, hang glider, paraglider, novice or skygod.

You'll be flying in teams of four each day (one advanced pilot; one intermediate; two novices) and setting your own goal based on the morning weather briefing.

Phoenix Cup The Phoenix Cup is Paragliding in Masquerade. Paraglider pilots fly in creative costumes, this with the inherent colour and excitement of paragliding captures the imagination of spectators. Last years inaugural event attracted more than 20 pilots creating over two hours of spectacular display for the public. Costumes included, Fred Flintstone (including car), a bath tube, fire engine, crash test dummy, a huge 20m octopus and many more. Costumes remain secret right up to the last minute in an effort for pilots to out do each other. The standards of entrants are very high, with pilots sometimes putting in many days of preparation. This year's Phoenix Cup will build on the enthusiasm of last year
