Welcome to our Wales Paraglide & Kiting Guide page - This page will help you get started with Paraglide & Kiting in Wales. For a comprehensive list of Paraglide & Kiting Resources see our Links Directory.

Paragliding is not a sport for the unadventurous or uncertain. It takes a lot of time and money on training before you can go out. Even more if you do so without a club.

In order to start you must contact one of the BHPA's training schools. You have to complete a 10 day course before you can fly outside the school and pass any assessment they give you, costing about £900. If on continuing you then buy your own equipment it will cost probably more than £2000(if second hand).
Use the BHPA to find clubs or training schools at
