High Adventure Paragliding on the Isle of Wight is a fully registered British Paragliding and Hang Gliding Association (BHPA) school and was the first in the UK to teach paragliding in the late 80s. High Adventure can also boast that numerous teaching techniques used by other schools today were developed by us. We have our own private teaching sites which enable you to enjoy uncrowded skies and plenty of room to learn in.

Experienced Instructors
At High Adventure Paragliding, all our dedicated instructors have been teaching paragliding courses to beginners, intermediates and experienced fliers for many years. All our instructors have a wealth of experience to offer new pilots, and are all licensed by the British Hang-gliding and Paragliding Association (BHPA).

We are located on the Isle of Wight which is about 5 miles off the south coast of the UK mainland and just a short ferry ride across the Solent. We are within easy reach of London (1½ - 2 hours) and the Home Counties.

More Flyable Days
Because the Isle of Wight is so far south, the Island very often escapes the worst effects of low pressure weather systems. This means we are lucky to get more than our fair share of good flyable days. Our good understanding of local weather patterns provides smooth and dynamic flying conditions that are ideal for learning the basic paragliding skills. With the added benefit of access to over eight flying sites catering for most wind directions which are all within 30 minutes’ drive, it is clear to see the advantages of learning to fly with High Adventure Paragliding.
