Welcome to the Manx Hang Gliding and Paragliding Club

Known informally as Manx Paragliders, the club aims to promote and support hang gliding and paragliding on the Isle of Man.

Our flying sites are relatively close to each other so driving time is modest. We enjoy spectacular coastal soaring as well as majestic inland hill sites although sea breezes blow for much of the year.

The club caters for all abilities and holds monthly social get togethers. More experienced club members are on hand to help everyone get the best out of their flying.

Roughly half of the island lies in controlled airspace and special arrangements exist for flying in the Control Zone. See Pilot Information for details.

We do not have facilities for learning to fly on the island but there are numerous training schools in the British Isles and continental Europe that are approved by the British Hang Gliding and Paragliding Association. See Pilot Information for details.

When we have great flying days, many of us like to share our experiences with articles, photos and videos. You will find some great reading on the Club News page with articles going back a number of years.
