Flying

Peak District flying is all about taking off into the skies and leaving your cares and worries behind you. Whether you like the silence and the feeling of getting away from it all amongst white fluffy clouds, or if you like speed and danger and fancy free flying over the hills and mountains of Derbyshire, then why not consider looking into Peak District flying as a new hobby for the year?

There are several ways to get into flying in the Peak District. We have up-to-date information on the very popular sport of peak district gliding, which includes hang gliding and paragliding in its subject. Take off in an or unpowered or motorised glider and experience the feeling of soaring above the clouds in silence or get further with an engine and pack your bags to go flying for the whole day.

We have Peak District ballooning, which combines the thrill of flight added with the condensation of floating on a breeze. How would you like to see the world from a new perspective in a relaxing and safeway, enjoying the beautiful Derbyshire countryside below and perhaps sipping a glass of champagne on the way? It's a great gift to give for a birthday, wedding, or anniversary present - or maybe you just feel like treating yourself to a break from the norm?.

Peak District helicopter rides are another alternative to get away from it all at high speed. Takeoff usually means having to visit a local country pub beforehand and then jetting off over the moors and taking in the sights. When you do come back to land 20 minutes later, perhaps another drink may be required to settle your nerves? What a shame!

Whatever floats your boat, or should we say flies your aircraft, we have so many different areas to Peak District flying that we can sort you out with a sky bourne adventure for sure.
