Butterfly Dave is a highly-experienced paragliding instructor with many hours flying experience under his belt (or harness)!
He has flown in a number of countries and competitions worldwide and is enthusiastic about giving people the amazing experience of flying;
and encouraging those who wish to pursue this incredible extreme sport as a hobby or as a career.
On the day he will talk you through the process of flying and perform a solo flight initially so you can see what's involved for your tandem flight then you're up, up and away.
Feel free to talk to him about your flight, interests or even career change...he's always happy to chat.
Tandem flights involve clifftop take-offs and landings!
Ideally call us the day before (and definitely before you set off) to check our flying weather forecast - then you can get super-excited if we're 'on'!
