Redlands Airfield

Welcome to Cloudbase Paragliding

Based at Redlands Airfield, Wiltshire, we are a well established paragliding school offering all levels of paraglider training from Air Experience Flights through to BHPA Club Pilot and beyond to tow endorsements, tandem flying and cross country.

Learn to Fly!

Learn to fly a paraglider over the beautiful scenery of Wiltshire from our base near Swindon.

Our experienced, talented, caring instructors pride themselves in giving quality instruction. We believe everyone is individual, so our training is geared to your specific needs and ability with the ultimate aim of getting you flying safely in a Club Environment and beyond.

Air Experience Flights

An Air Experience Flight with Cloudbase is a wonderful introduction to paragliding!

As well as the wonderful sensation of flying a paraglider and the stunning views, depending on the experience you choose you may be able to take control of the glider (with your instructors help of course), or even make some short solo flights. You never know, you might even decide that paragliding is the hobby for you.

About Cloudbase Paragliding

Cloudbase Paragliding is steeped in flying history. Originally started in 1989, the name was resurrected by Lee Bligh and Fiona Burgess in 2009 when their new BHPA school was created in Wiltshire.

In 2009 Cloudbase Paragliding Ltd was created as a BHPA paragliding school by Lee Bligh and Fiona Burgess. In 2017 they then went on to acquire a successful microlight flying school to become Cloudbase Airsports.

A few kind words from our past and current students

Just a note to thank you for all your time and effort spent training me to become a club pilot, has to be the best hobby!

Mike SCP Course

Thanks you so much for the Paragliding on Sunday! It was a fantastic experience the sensation of flying was amazing and the views across the country side spectacular. You’re right  – even though I suffer from vertigo I wasn’t scared at all and in fact felt very relaxed up in the clouds – as soon as we landed wanted to go straight back up!
