Paraglider Reviews

We stock a wide range of wings in various sizes, so as well as being able to offer you demos to fly, it also means we can thoroughly test them and compare them against each other. In our reviews we focus on handling, security and matching the wing to the right kind of pilots.

Harness Reviews

We analyze the newest harnesses from a pilot’s perspective. We also have brand new trial harnesses in our showroom, available to hang in during a custom fitting session.

Instrument Reviews

Finding the right flight instrument is mostly about identifying your information needs and matching those with the functionality of the units on offer. It’s one thing being able to operate an instrument on the desk in front of you, quite another thing to do so in the air while being lofted by sporty spring thermals.
