Cornwall Hang Gliding and Paragliding Cloud 9  

  Cloud 9 are the specialists in the Southwest for Hang Gliding, Paragliding and Foot launched powered flying.


We have a reputation for providing tuition to high standards producing quality pilots in excess of the minimum requirements for qualification. As a British Hang Gliding and Paragliding Association (BHPA) registered school with many years of instruction and experience behind us we have taught hundreds of students. We now focus on teaching a limited number of customers a year who are enthusiastic and committed to the sport. This allows us to tailor our tuition to individuals closely, resulting in a more personal experience. Low instructor to student ratio gives greater flexibility and better use of time and weather.


We can offer tuition from scratch with no previous experience needed through to post qualification refreshers, development and conversion courses. With over 40 years experience from fun flying through to representing the UK at international level (including over 35 years of instructing) our Chief Flying instructor is still very much the one on the ground passing on the knowledge.


Teaching from sites in west Cornwall we also offer Tandem flight experiences on both Paragliders and Hang Gliders giving the opportunity for trying out the sport for both fun or as a prelude to learning.


If you are serious about learning to fly, need some top up training, environment conversions or would like a Tandem flight give us a call and we can discuss your personal needs and how we can fulfil them, everyone is different .
