I had the best one day introduction to paragliding, in fantastic scenery. My instructor Tim was very enthusiastic and... quickly settled my nerves. I was amazed to be in the air before lunch! I managed 6 flights in all and my enjoyment increased exponentially, as my confidence grew. I have always wanted to have a go at this and my first day did not disappoint. Should have done it years ago! Thanks Fly Sussex, see you again soon.read more

If you want an amazing hassle free service and total commitment from the team, look no further and book yourself in asap, it is much recommended.

We had a brilliant day we are still talking about and can’t wait to book our day 2 💪👍read more
Really enjoyed my tandem. Felt very safe. A great intro to paragliding
Amazing day and brilliant instruction. Very welcoming environment and as complete novice, not made to feel like one.... Instructors will happily go over anything that you need to know. Jess was great with her upbeat attitude and made the day really fun, I can honestly say it was one of the best experiences I had and I loved every minute of it. Thank you!read more
I had an amazing experience with Fly Sussex. The staff were really helpful and although I was nervous, they made me... feel calm and relaxed enabling me to have an awesome flight. Thank you 🙏🏼read more
I did a 1 day try it out day on 2nd August. I have done several tandem flights before while away on holiday but wanted... to actually fly rather than just enjoy a thrill and the view. I was in a group of 9 starters and about 4 instructors. Everyone was charming and the 1st hillside was ideal, shallow gradient not scary BUT I am quite heavy (100 kg) and struggled to get off the ground while everyone else started getting off the ground. So we all went further up the hill where take off should be easier but partly due to light winds and partly my incompetence I failed. Tim took me to a higher hill to at least do a tandem with me but the wind changed again and it wasn’t possible. I was gutted. Not at not doing the tandem but because I hadn’t done a real solo flight and that was the objective.So.....Tim took me with one of the other instructors cross country to another launch site, steeper hill, higher winds, 2 practice take offs later off I went, proper solo flight with turns, I was in the air for maybe 2 minutes (hard to tell), on my own up with the birds. Just fabulous. A huge thank you to Tim and the other chap whose name I can’t remember, sorry, an experience I will never forget at just the moment I thought I had blown it. They have the patience of saints and I can not recommend them highly enough. I’ll be back.read more
i was only meant to do the tandem flight but ended up having the one day lesson.Flew solo up to about 100ft it was... absolutely brilliant. Thanks to all the instructorsread more
Fantastic instructors who give you the confidence to try something new and challenging. They make it a real experience.
Fantastic day learning to paraglide. Great experience and great instructors! Will be back for sure!
Excellent crew and staff. Full of smiles and encouragement.
It's a great flying school with a team very competent and friendly. The emphasis is about getting out and flying as... often as possible under close supervision, so you can build confidence rapidly. What more do you want? Fly Sussex has many experienced instructors and I found this variety has given me more chances to pick-up advices and tips, giving me the feeling of being well supported during my progression. Now flying as a novice pilot is a bit challenging, but I know I can always go back to Fly Sussex for advices. and beyond as I still be going there if I need it. Thanks the team!read more
This was awesome!! Had no idea I'd be doing a solo flight from the top of the hill on day 1!! Totally want to do the... course now. Jess was a great instructor, and everyone else was just lovely, super friendly and fun.I would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to jump off the side of a hill/cliff/fly in general, do it with these guys 🙂read more
Despite my initial aprehension (it was bought as a birthday "surprise" despite having not shown any desire to throw... myself of a cliff strapped to a wing 😊) had a fantastic day in October with Fly Sussex and can recommend it to anyone who is thinking of trial flight.Whether like me you might be a little apprehensive of running and jumping of a 300ft steep slope on their first day,there is absolutely no pressure put on you, and Jess and the team coax you along until you are confident enough to take the flight.I heartily recommend it and Fly Sussex to everyone.read more
Brilliant day. first time I had ever been paragliding and I was doing solo flights in no time.Jess was a great... instructor and everyone else involved was really helpful and friendly.can't recommend it enoughread more
Hi all, I passed my CP course a couple of weeks ago and would highly recommend fly sussex paragliding to... everyone.Since the first day, right though to our last day. myself and Rob (flying buddy) have been welcomed and treated like family.... everyone at fly sussex are highly skilled, professionals and enthusiastic about paragliding. with a good training programme and safety structure.The thing I like the most, was the way they all worked with each pupil on a 1 to 1 basis, adapted the training to the individuals skill level / learning pace, getting the most out of us all.A big "THANK YOU" to everyone at Fly Sussex.read more
The most talented & patient teachers I've ever met. But more than that, just an awesome bunch to people to get to know.😁

I think that fly Sussex paragliding is really cool and amazing. if there was a competition for the best paragliding... school they would win it! They make me feel really good and confident when they was teaching me, i lernt a lot. but safety always came first! I didn't want to go home! Thank you to all the people that work there. And thank you for everything you taught me. I had the best time of my life! Regards. Dan's inner child 😄👌🏼read more

I did one day Tandem flight. It was great experience. With gentle landing. Wish to take full flying lesson next year.
I took a one day course with you on Monday and just wanted to send an email to say thank you for a fantastic day. I... was more than a bit nervous beforehand, wondering what I was letting myself in for. My fears and apprehension were gone pretty quickly and this was primarily down to the brilliant instruction I and the rest of the group received from Jess. Together with her co-instructors, I was made to feel completely safe and they were brilliantly helpful, patient, knowledgeable and friendly. The kind of people anyone would want to spend a day with and they were truly passionate about sharing knowledge and seeing us achieve our goals. I thought I might get a few feet off the ground on day one but achieved a whole lot more than that flying through the air and doing it for myself with new found skills I didn’t possess at the start of the day.The whole day far exceeded my expectations. I loved the experience and the way Jess and her team worked with us to make us feel confident and capable. I came home feeling knackered but absolutely exhilarated. A ski lift at the site would be a real help but I honestly wouldn’t change anything about the experience. You guys were amazing and I loved every moment of the day.Thank you!read more
An amazing experience and really helpful and very patient instructors that want you to get the best out of you day
Just did the one day course. We were lucky with the weather and Tim and his team pushed us to make the most of it. We... managed to do 2 solo flights by the end of the morning. Well organised, good equipment, supportive coaching and stunning views from way up high.read more
My family and I decided to give this a go while on holiday in the U.K. and I really recommend it! It was such an... amazing experience from setting up the gliders and checking the equipment to learning to fly with the beautiful Devil's Dyke landscape as our backdrop.read more
One day initial lesson (so far)Fantastic day, fantastic instructors, truly amaizing experience! 👍👍👍
I'm currently having a very good time getting my CP Qual with these guys. They are chilled when they need to be and... tough when needed. All in good measure. I'd definitely recommend training with them and assume the SIV and hols would be of a similar quality.read more
Had a fab time at Fly Sussex today! Went for tandem paragliding and it was a great experience. The instructors were... very friendly and made me feel totally at ease. We were also up in the air just over some cliffs next to the sea so the views were great! I would definitely recommend it. Thanks Fly Sussex and a special thanks to Jess and Ylva for an amazing day! 🙂read more

The best paragliding school in England ��
Just had my first flight with these guys and it was great fun. The instructors were really enthusiastic and fun and I... felt really safe with them the entire time. Definitely doing it again.read more
Mixed feelings about my visit to Fly Sussex. My girlfriend bought me a one-day voucher as a birthday present (for which... I am very grateful !). The tuition, the equipment and the location were all superb - absolutely flawless. The instructors were a very friendly bunch and I would happily recommend their services to anyone considering paragliding lessons. HOWEVER, this wasn't exactly a cheap birthday present, so my girlfriend was "miffed" (an understatement !) when my "one day" experience was over shortly after 12:30. I did have a great time but you should be wary of the duration of the "one day" experience. Clearly the duration is subject to favourable weather conditions but, aside from one or two spots of rain, the day I flew turned out to be completely dry.read more

This school is very special place. The instructors are all superb teachers; continuous patience, generosity of spirit,... enthusiasm and good humour provide a platform for your learning.It makes me sad almost that one cannot go back to the start of the CP and experience the journey anew. Having said that those emotions are tempered by the recent experience with the club on a holiday to the alps. Your mind is blown by how much there is to learn; a whole new world has opened up. Do not leave it. Book it now and just do it. With the skill and support of these wonderful people you will find yourself experiencing this unique sport. It is like nothing else. New friends and a life time of adventure awaits! Thank You so much guys 🙂read more
Great morning out paragliding, great team of staff, thank you!
Excellent tuition for first timers and we were surprised by how much we were able to do. I thoroughly recommend.
The most important thing is that all the instructors are outstanding: encouraging and helpful, and very good indeed at... giving accurate and detailed feedback to help you learn. They're also seriously impressive when they do demos! The excellent sites and equipment and the friendly atmosphere back at base add up to a great experience.I started a while ago and had 5 flights on my first day, and it was exciting so I decided to take paragliding further. Now I have my CP (Club Pilot, or novice) rating. It took me a while because I had a couple of long gaps for work, and if you're aiming for CP I'd recommend trying to fit the course into as few weeks or months as you can (as most people do, I think). Fortunately for me Fly Sussex are flexible and patient, so I got there. I wouldn't have done it without such high calibre instruction, and the sense of confidence and safety that provided.The best moments were that first day at Muggery Bottom, flying from Mount Caburn (which seemed like a very big hill, especially climbing it for the second time - but it was so worth it), soaring continuously for the best part of half an hour on the Beddingham ridge, and managing to take off and land - occasionally - almost gracefully.read more
Hi everyone I really recommend anyone to join Sussex paragliding very friendly team and very professional I'm looking... forward to getting my course and have more fun with all team and visitors nice time 👍👌👌👌💯💯💯Thanks to all team appreciate !!!read more

Brilliant crew of people on top of learning to fly safely - amazing !
If I could give it zero stars I would! I bought a paragliding voucher as a present for my son's 17 birthday.... Unfortunately we couldn't make it during the week, so we paid extra to be able to go on a weekend. On the day before the booked lesson my son got unwell and we cancelled the lesson. I later phoned and booked another lesson, but it was cancelled due to bad weather. Flysussex is now telling me that the voucher is cancelled because we were supposed to give cancellation notice 48 hours in advance. They wouldn't give him another chance to have a lesson and no refund. My son was left without any present for his 17th birthday. I hope Flysussex get rich and successful by taking kids birthday money. Should have read previous review on Googleread more

Had a fantastic time paragliding for the first time - have always wanted to give it a try and got a days voucher from... my husband for Christmas. All the trainers are so patient and knowledgable and everyone in our group was flying down this massive hill by ourselves after just a couple of hours, much more than I expected to be able to do in one day.

Great week at Sussex Paragliding! Many many thanks especially to Tim Cox for training me to CP level and advising me... on equipment. His vast experience, safety-consciousness and calm, easygoing manner were just what I needed. Today was my last day and we got in about fifteen flights before the wind picked up a bit too much. Top landings, speed bar practice, sideslope landings, big ears, ground handling, spot landings, reserve packing... All great stuff! And I love the motto: "Fly more, work less"! 🙂read more

Stella and I had the choice of a number of international paragliding clubs across the world to choose from. We... eventually chose Fly Sussex Paragliding and have never looked back. It was a wise choice. We felt welcome from the first minute we walked into the club premises. The training we received was superb and we knew we were in safe hands.We have completed CP, have our own wings and, thanks to Fly Sussex have the confidence to make our own decisions when to fly and when not to fly. Thank you Fly Sussex and you have not seen the last of us.read more
An amazing experience, superb instruction. Am hooked, will definitely be back to work towards my Licence...

After purchasing the 10 day course for my partner last Christmas I have been to watch on a couple of occasions.

I have learnt so much just being there, I just couldn't have chosen a better present for Gary. Thank you all so much. xxread more
