Airworks can make that dream a reality.
Fly with the best! With our expert dual instructors even a complete beginner can be soaring high above the Downs after just a short briefing. If you get hooked and want to continue your training to learn to fly solo we can help you there too, just check out our learn to fly pages.
Learn to fly with the Airworks Paragliding School on our premium sites at the heart of the beautiful South Downs National Park. We train more pilots to completion of their Club Pilot rating than any other southern school, despite keeping our group sizes small and having a small intake! We train many more pilots to the higher level 'Pilot' and 'Advanced Pilot' ratings than all other local schools put together. Our Club Pilot training includes the top landing and slope landing skills rarely taught abroad but required to fly safely in the UK.
Airworks Paragliding Centre is based at Glynde train station, on the main Brighton and London to Eastbourne railway lines. By road, we are 400 metres north of the A27 in the village of Glynde just south of the National Opera at Glyndebourne. We can even accommodate arrival by air if you tell us in advance!
Alongside our centre is Winging It's fully stocked shop of paramotors, paragliders, hang gliders and associated equipment.
We also have excellent classroom facilities equipped for all your needs and an on-site cafe.
