Comments:  Paragliding is the ultimate easy footlaunch aviation!

With a paraglider in your car, you can arrive at a hillside flying site, unfold your flying machine from its rucksack, and after a few minutes be ready to join the birds, flying and soaring above beautiful countryside... no hassle, no noise, no distractions... just you and the elements ... This is paragliding! You are in control of your own aircraft - using the air currents to glide around in the freedom of the sky ... Let us introduce you to this wonderful sport on the beautiful South Downs, a perfect environment for safe, progressive paragliding lessons...

Our Courses...

TASTER EXPERIENCES: We offer tandem flights, single or two day tasters for those wishing to try out paragliding - these experiences also make an excellent gift idea - we offer vouchers for all of our courses. Tandem flights and taster days are also an excellent way to experience paragliding if you're thinking of taking it up but a little unsure of what to expect.

COURSES: As well as tasters and tandems, we offer the full BHPA Elementary Pilot (EP) Course, which covers the basics of paragliding and gets you up and flying solo in around 5 days (they don't have to be consecutive, and we do allow you extra days if needed).

After completing the EP course, you can move on to the Club Pilot (CP) Course level in order to fly without supervision and join a club. We offer several packages to get you there, either with or without equipment - Click here to see prices or book now or call us on 0780 350 6567 to discuss our money saving options!

About Apex Paragliding School

APEX is a full-time paragliding training school, based on the South Downs near Brighton, around an hour's drive from London. Sussex is one of the friendliest paragliding environments in the UK - rounded, grassy hills and beautiful countryside lend themselves to paragliding, and range from gentle training slopes to 700-foot hills which allow spectacular height gains of thousands of feet to qualified pilots.paragliding lessons and tuition.

At Apex, we have 22 years experience of defying gravity, dating from the early days of this fantastic sport. We offer a friendly approach with small groups and low student-to-instructor ratios, working on both private and club sites. We are registered with the British Hang Gliding and Paragliding Association, and all Apex instructors are fully qualified BHPA Instructors or Senior Instructors; Gary Cook, Chief Flying Instructor at Apex, has worked in the sport since 1988, serving on BHPA Training, Safety and Examining Committees and Club Committees. Our courses run 7 days a week* (weather permitting), and you can book to fit in with your own requirements.
In addition to teaching, we supply the equipment you will need to become a safe, qualified paraglider pilot; we are agents for all major brands. Our secure online shop stocks a range of books and DVDs about paragliding (click the equipment link at the top of the page).

In the coming 2011 season, we hope to be offering specialised Koch winch on selected weekends in addition to our usual hill-based training.
