At Midland Paragliding we are committed to making sure your flying with us is a fabulous experience where your safety is paramount.
We do this by:
1. Employing BHPA**(British Hanggliding & Paragliding Association) trained professional caring instructors
2. Training you in small groups (max. 4 novices) ensuring more personal instruction time
3. Flying you on some of the most beautiful sites in the Midlands , South ,East ,and West of Ireland
4. Using highest quality, user friendly training paragliders – harnesses – radios – helmets etc…..all included in the price.
5. Working flexible teaching hours. We stay on the hill as long as it takes
(we don’t just hurry off at 5 o’clock!)
6. Constantly seeking to improve our quality of service to you.
Training is usually conducted on gentle nursery slopes, practising take offs and ‘low hops’, all the time under our expert tuition. All our instructors are very experienced pilots with a caring and enthusiastic attitude committed to maximising your enjoyment and safe progress. Your instructor will explain how the canopy is laid out, checked, inflated and how it is controlled when on the ground and in the air ; you’ll then take it in turns with other members of your group to have your first short training hops………..
When you’ve become adept at ground handling, controlling airspeed and making gentle turns, you’ll go to a higher hill for longer flights. As you gain experience you’ll learn to soar – to stay up in favourable winds and make longer flights. Eventually top landing and no more climbing slopes and onward to flying for many miles across the Irish countryside……..Heaven

Skydive Ireland offers you the chance to experience the ultimate adventure of freefalling through the sky at 200 km/h. We offer two types of skydiving experiences:
The one day course is designed to teach you about the parachute equipment, how to perform a skydive and how to fly and control the parachute to a safe landing. The first skydive takes place from an exit altitude of 3,500ft. Repeat skydives allow you to progress to higher altitudes and longer freefall. Additional skydives are only €45 per jump.
The Tandem Skydive is for people who would like to experience the feeling of skydiving as a once off thrill. After 20 minutes of training you are attached securely to a very experienced Instructor who takes care of everything to do with the skydive. The exit altitude is 10,000ft and you freefall for 25 seconds at 200 km/h until the parachute is deployed at 5,000ft. You are given the chance then to fly the parachute.
