Welcome to the Manx Hang Gliding and Paragliding Club. The club aims to promote and support hang gliding and paragliding on the Isle of Man.
We enjoy spectacular coastal soaring as well as majestic inland hill sites and we don’t have far to travel between sites if the wind changes direction.
The club holds informal monthly social get togethers. Everyone is welcome, even if you are just looking for further information. Our more experienced club members and coaches are on hand to help. To find out how to get involved please visit our Members Area.
None of our members are active paramotor pilots. For further information about powered flight, please see the power section of the BHPA website.
Controlled Airspace covers a substantial part of the island. You will need permission from Ronaldsway Air Traffic Control before flying in restricted areas. See Pilot Information for details.
If you would like to learn to fly, you will need to travel off island. We used to have an active paragliding training school on the island. Unfortunately there was not enough custom to keep the school going. See Learn To Fly for details.
You will find some great reading on the Club News page with articles going back a number of years.
