All our sites are registered to Paramania. The school allows us access to the sites subject to the conditions set out in this guide. In return, the club guarantees priority use of the sites to the school when required. Please respect this arrangement and be prepared to move to an alternative site if asked. If you have not trained with Paramania or flown the sites before it is recommended that you be accompanied by a club coach or other club member with knowledge of the sites to familiarise yourself with the sites, bottom landing areas, and arrangements for payment of site fees.

Using a site

  1. Before visiting a site contact the farmer or landowner listed in the guide to confirm access and permission to fly and to check if any landing fields or access tracks are currently out of use.
  2. On weekdays telephone 0800 575544 to NOTAM the site.
  3. Use only those tracks, parking areas, launching and landing areas specified in the guide or indicated by farmer or landowner.
  4. Enjoy your flying but please follow the countryside and mountain codes. Do not disturb livestock or damage crops and fences. Leave gates as you find them. Do not obstruct gateways and tracks and pick up any litter. If you notice obvious problems such as broken fences, livestock roaming on roads, or loose dogs please tell the farmer at once. It will help him and avoid paragliders being blamed for the carelessness of others.
  5. Carry your club site permit with you at all times and be prepared to show it to farmers or club coaches if asked. Do not argue with landowners. We are their guests and want to be invited back.
  6. Please comply with all regulations and MSRs laid down by the BHPA and the CAA. You must carry adequate valid third-party insurance.
  7. Report and accident/incident as soon as possible. BHPA incident report forms are available from the BHPA These contain detailed instructions on official reporting procedures.
  8. Pay your site fee to the place indicated in the guide. Site fees paid on a personal basis are one of the best means of maintaining good relationships with our farmers and landowners. They are to cover wear and tear on tracks and fields and are payable whether you fly or not. They are currently £2 per head or £3 per head depending on the site but please note that these are under review. Please refer to the relevant site page before flying.
  9. After visiting a site let us know how you got on.
