I've just had my solo paragliding day and I'm still buzzing - it was outstanding. There's more flying, and you get to solo flying more quickly, than I was expecting for one day. The instructors are friendly and helpful, and the experience is one I shall never forget (and hope to repeat!).
I've learnt to paraglide this summer with fly Sussex I passed my Elementary Pilot qualification in 3 days & I'm just about to sit my exam for Club Pilot. I have found every member of the staff to be really professional, knowledgeable, encouraging, friendly and passionate about paragliding, you can tell they really enjoy their jobs! I was so impressed with the briefings, tuition and the fact I got to do 3 solo flights on my first day! Fly Sussex has access to some amazing private training sites and I've also flown Newhaven Cliffs, High and Over and Mount Caburn with them. if you want to learn to paraglide or wanted to try a tandem flight, I highly reccomend Fly Sussex!
I had the best time with fly Sussex. Did a tamdem flight with Jenni and it was one of the best days of my life! The whole crew are so friendly yet professional, I felt looked after, that me having a great, fun time was a priority whilst also making me feel safe and secure. The equipment is also top knotch. I honestly could not reccomend Fly Sussex highly enough!
An amazing experience with an awesome team! Such professionalism in their teaching skills brought to life with some good humour and relaxed nature. Learning with Fly Sussex was like spending the day with friends having an amazing adventure. Certainly looking forward to booking in again for another day.
i had an astonishing day yesterday with Fly Sussex
for my tandem flight
it was a magical experience i was alarmed when i heard we were going to Newhaven Cliffs !
i told Jess that i was scared
and she said ' oh you'll love a bit of cliff flying ' !
she is so skilled in talking you out of your fears
and I'm someone who normally suffers with anxiety ! if i can do this , then anyone can , with Fly Sussex ! then afterwards they gave me an edited film of the highlights
showing clearly the take off , which was a bit difficult
and the two of us flying off the cliffs ! Lucie Robson
Lesson number 7 today, what a great day, I managed, multiple flights including.. big ears.. speed bar.. asymmetric collapses.. reverse launches and to top it off.. soaring. Really feel like it's all coming together now. Thanks all at fly sussex.
Great instructors - both women and men - who care about their students and about the sport. I have trusted them to look out for me on many occasions and they're safety first approach is very reassuring. I wouldn't go anywhere else to learn.
As a spectator I had an amazing time watching Lee my son have his first flight. Can't believe he actually had four solo flights on his first day, Tim and all the other instructors were brilliant, met some real nice people too. Maybe I will be back and give it a go too �
Had a great day yesterday doing the one day introduction course. Tim and the rest of the staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. They even tolerated the fact I kept tangling my lines up whilst moving my glider! Thoroughly recommend giving it a go!!!
Went paragliding with flysussex after one year of fixed wing gliding. Very friendly and helpful staff who quickly get you set up with what you need to know and in the air! Gave me an entirely new perspective on flying and thoroughly recommend to anybody.
I went paragliding with Jess for my birthday this week and it was absolutely excellent. It didn't matter that we didn't have a clear day because jess really made the most of the great wind conditions and I had so much fun. I really felt like I was flying and am keen to do more. Jess put those who were feeling nervous at ease and all the staff had a really infectious energy that left me feeling great for the whole day. Definitely recommend!
