Tandem Paragliding Experience in the Brecon Beacons

By Crickhowell Paragliding
About
Paragliding is a unique way to see the landscape. It's a low impact, silent and lightweight form of flight. The ability to take off and land so slowly, makes it possible for us to fly from a wide variety of locations, and share the sky with local birds of prey. The gentle exposure to the air you feel when flying is exhilarating, without being extreme, and makes for an incredibly memorable experience.

Ages 8-90, max of 6 per group

        As a pilot I have come to fully respect and appreciate Alistair's input at every level. He is is my go to expert for training, development and advice/purchase of new kit all of which I have done repeatedly. Cheers Alistair, I'm very happy to be within striking distance and I appreciate your after sales help and commitment to safe progress in this superb sport.

        Training to achieve my Paragliding Club Pilot licence
        Learning to paraglide in my sixties was not something I ever envisaged happening, but Alistair and his team at Crickhowell Paragliding made it all possible! Everything you need to know and learn how to do is introduced gradually and with great patience and professionalism. There is a good mixture of theory, practical demonstrations and hands on practice and there is no pressure to attempt more than you are ready for. The flying sites used vary depending on prevailing weather conditions and the level of training you have reached, but are all great places. Until you are ready to purchase your own equipment it is possible to use the school equipment which is all in good condition, and then when you are ready Alistair advises you regarding suitable options, and if you purchase it through him he will get you a great deal.

        Alistair and his team are a very professional organisation who provide training at local sites in South Wales including the outstanding Rhossili Bay on the Gower Peninsula. Some of these sites are among the best flying sites in the UK. From the outset, I was impressed by Alistair’s calm and informative approach to training, which was adapted to meet the needs of every student. I can vividly recall those very first tentative steps on Day 1 and always looked forward to the next training day. The instructors were very willing to answer the myriad of questions I had. Ridge soaring and thermalling with a red kite at Hay Bluff, then top landing on the Offa’s Dyke ridge was one of the highlights of my training. Alistair offered excellent advice on equipment, providing it at a discounted rate, so you could complete the final stages of training using your own kit, which is a great advantage of doing your training in the UK rather than abroad. I have no hesitation in recommending Crickhowell Paragliding as your go to place to start this amazing sport.

      Did a tandem paraglide from The Blorenge at Abergavenny with Andy as my pilot. Amazing attention to detail and safety instruction prior to flight. Highly experienced and totally in safe hands! What an amazing flight Andy treated me to. I’m 68 and it was a breeze to partake - so why are you waiting. I TOTALLY recommend it. Keith

      The whole experience was excellent. There was really clear communication when arranging the date. The instructor was skilful, friendly and engaging. I don't think it could have been better.

      After flying paragliders for about five years, I decided to transition to speed flying. The school at Crickhowell was recommended to me so I signed up. There is always a little apprehension about new instructors: how hands on will they be? will the pace be too fast (or slow), are they just going to try and sell me gear I don't really need, etc. Upon meeting Alistair and Andy, the speed flying instructor, I knew this was a well-run operation and all of those worries disappeared.
      Alistair has a calming confidence. He delivers his training with a gentle firmness that encourages progression without you feeling rushed or overwhelmed. Everyone on his team lives for flying. They don't do this because they have to, they do this because want to. I think that this motivation and drive filters down to the rest of us.
      Learning to fly or taking a tandem flight with Crickhowell Paragliding will see you spending time amongst dedicated instructors, with great banter, in some of the most spectacular flying scenery in the UK. As further testament to how much I'd recommend them, whenever I get the chance I travel the four-hours from Leeds just to go flying with Ali and the Crickhowell team.
      I would certainly recommend them to anyone thinking of paraglider instruction, speed flying, or tandem flights in the UK.

      I signed up for a speed-wing conversion with the Crickhowell team. Their knowledge was invaluable both on the hill and when it came to choosing equipment. I would not hesitate to recommend them for any paragliding instruction or tandem experience.
