PEAK SOARING ASSOCIATION FLYING SITES

The PSA has access to a number of paragliding sites in the Peaks for use by our club members. They represent years of negotiation, observation, knowledge and skill and sometimes hard-won experience.

Many, if not all the Peak sites have demanding characteristics of their own. Members have access to the sites guide and should read it carefully before travelling to a site.

Most of the PSA sites are valley sites, where the site guide states that conditions can get rough in strong winds and/or when the wind is off the slope, this can mean dangerously so! In addition, most of the sites can be wave affected in certain wind strengths and conditions.

If in doubt about any aspect of our sites, particularly relating to safety issues and weather conditions, seek advice from experienced local pilots or, preferably, a club coach who’s contact details are included on this website.
