Air sports in Cornwall

What could be more exhilarating than learning to fly?

Learning to fly in the beautiful natural  surroundings of Cornwall!

Aviation sports are just one of many adventure sports available to enjoy in Cornwall.

Experience the freedom of soaring in the skies above the amazing Cornish coastline.  AOPA Approved pilot training is available (including helicopter training), with flying lessons at a number of locations within Cornwall, as well as leisure flights for those new to flying.

There is a Cornish Gliding Club and Powered flight training with aircraft hire is available at a number of venues throughout Cornwall from the Land's End area to Bodmin Moor.

Trial flying lessons and scenic flights are available at a number of flying club based locations in Cornwall including Perranporth and Cardinham.

Drone Flying has become increasingly popular in Cornwall but you must operate within the law.  On 13th March 2019 new restrictions on drone flights came into use, meaning a change to restriction zones around airports and airfields. For full details visit:

Paragliding courses and training are available. This aviation sport is hill based with launch by foot, not to be confused with Parascending.

Hang Gliding clubs exist in Cornwall offering training for those with Hang gliders and Micro-light training can be undertaken.

For the extreme sports enthusiast, Parachuting and Sky-diving can be enjoyed above the beautiful Cornish countryside.
