UK Paragliding Courses
Some feedback from people who've learnt to paraglide with Flybubble Paragliding in the UK...
Ben Annett - UK Course
Thanks for all your efforts - I've really enjoyed the course so far!
Ben (upgrading from 5 day to 10 day paragliding course)
Simon Isaac - UK Course
A big thanks again to you and Carlo for the effort you put in training us :)) I don't think I could have asked for better teachers.
Adam Cutts - UK Course
I really appreciate the confidence you have given and continue to give me. I feel so much better about the whole experience than I did before Flybubble!! I am really excited about getting more and more experience and skill.
Lawrence Fansa - UK Course
I learnt with Carlo at Flybubble and hold nothing but praise for these guys.
Winter training has been excellent for me, soaring days, stable air - managed 99% of my training in the space of two weeks.
From my experience I'd say train in the UK, you get to meet the guys on the hill and in local clubs, pitching up to a site on your own doesn't become so daunting then.
Helen James - UK Course
The more students are taught by Flybubble the safer the skies will be for all of us!
Thanks again, Helen
Alay Patel - UK Course
Thank you for your professional coaching over the weekend... and you too Nancy!
The tandem flight was great and yes, I certainly did learn a lot... thanks for that.
Many thanks... and see you on those hills! Al
Andrew Eeles - UK Course
Thank you for all of your coaching efforts. I really enjoyed the overall process (which was quite different to my early hangliding days) and feel very well placed to progress further (hopefully XC before too long). Good luck with the School.
Chris Roberts - UK Course
Thanks for my first day it was excellent fun (if a little warm).
I'd like to book the second day.
Owen Wilson - UK Course
I thought the tandem flight was tremendously beneficial. I'm really glad that I was flying on a tandem for my first soaring flight as I think I would have been unnerved by the other gliders by myself. When I do get to soar by myself I will be able to think back to that situation which makes it all much clearer than just looking at books or watching other flyers.
Christophe Boudet - UK Course
Great day... looking forward to the next session!
Francisco Nascimento - UK Course
Achieving BHPA Club Pilot rating: Thank you all @ Team Flybubble - without you this would have never happened. Thank you for all the good advice, patience, tips, constructive criticism and encouragement!
Gary Hunter - UK Course
Thank you very much for a fantastic three days, and even more thanks for getting my feet well above ground level on my first day.
You're instruction and safety are second to none, and I can't wait to see you soon to continue my training.
Take care, Gary
Gavin Newton - UK Course
Thanks for the excellent training over the weekend, I had a great time. After my high flight I'm really looking forward to some more and then some soaring :)
Big thanks for the tandem, getting a taste of what to expect from the sport gave me big smiles.
And to top off the weekend, I discovered I am also free next weekend after all, so was wondering if you have any spaces.
Gavin Wye - UK Course
I just wanted to drop you a quick note to thank you for a great day. I was throughly exhausted by the end of the day but well worth it.
An added bonus having 1 to 1 tuition!
I still haven't been able to describe the feeling of the ground disappearing from under me to anyone.
All in all a great day, I'll be back soon I hope.
Thanks again, Gavin
Bob Ball & Ken Cristie - UK Course
Many thanks for the excellent introduction to the sport and the excellent tuition.
We both of us realise that there is much to learn.
Gerry Bradnam - UK Course
Thank you for all your efforts in getting me airborne.
The training provided by the team at Flybubble was well organised, professional and great fun. Your advice on equipment has also proved invaluable and the continued help and encouragement you still give me on the hillside is much appreciated.
I asked for the course to be as quick as possible and you made every effort to oblige. I always felt that the training was conducted at a good but safe pace that suited me and built my confidence.
I have already recommended Flybubble to a number of friends and would be happy to be used as a reference for anyone considering them.
The post-CP paragliding trip was one of the best activity holidays I have been on and I have been on quite a number. I certainly hope to join you on any future trips.
Helen James - UK Course
After my unsatisfactory experiences with a couple of schools I found Flybubble who gave me the most thorough and careful instruction I have ever received and who have never sold me anything that is less than perfect for my needs.
In my view it is far better to pick a school that trains each student as an individual and takes the time to advise you on the equipment you need rather than pushing the stuff with the biggest margin for them.
Janos Kovacs - UK Course
Big thanks to the Flybubble team!
I wish to share my experience with anyone looking for a perfect paragliding school.
I finished my BHPA club pilot training with Flybubble this April, and was amazed with the whole training; it was very professional, helpful and personal.
They helped me to find the right kit (wing, harness, etc. from their massive stock) which best suited me, and my level of skills. Big thanks for that!
Happy Landings, Janos
Jenni Fleming - UK Course
Thanks for a great day yesterday. I'd really like to carry on with the training and do the EP course - getting started as soon as possible... Just let me know what you need from me in order to continue!
Thanks for a great day's flying and I'll hopefully see you in a couple of weeks.
All the best, Jenni
John Brettoner - UK Course
I had a great day yesterday and so did Annette... it was great fun and it reminded me of why I wanted to fly in the first place!
I really appreciate your input and the way that you brought certain things to my attention. I now feel sure that I'm finally on the right track with regard to getting my CP signed off.
