Q. Do I have
to travel on the flight you use - for example if I live a long way from
the airport your flight leaves from?
A. No, you can organise your own flight but do speak to us first to make
sure we can do your transfer. You may need to wait a while or organise
your own transfer.
Q. Do I need
my own equipment?
A. Yes. You will need your own gear. A reserve parachute is mandatory and you will need a vario to get the best out of this trip. If you need to purchase these, call Northern on 0845 220 6066
Q. I would
like to stay for an irregular number of days, can you accomodate this?
A. This is possible, but it may
be difficult to arrange transfers.
Q. Do you
do group discounts?
A. We have no specific discount
structure, but if you have a group of 4 or more and are willing for
one person to be the contact for the group, then we will be able to
offer you some discount.
Q. What will
the weather throw at us?
A. We can never guarantee the weather on ANY flying trip. If we could predict this we wouldnt be running a paragliding school! Be prepared for anything and be adaptable and we'll have a good time regardless. Bring some suncream as it can still be hot in September.
Q. How much
experience do I need?
A. You need a CP qualification
and be reasonably current in terms of forward launches.
Q. Can I bring
my non-flying partner and/or family?
A. We have 2 double rooms. No children though, sorry.
Q. I understand there are deer and wild animals around the chalet. Can I shoot them?
A. Yes! Please bring a large callibre rifle and plenty of ammo. The wild pigs can take some bringing down and a large hunting knife is useful to despatch wounded animals.
