Whether your a newly qualified C.P pilot or a more experienced pilot looking for mentoring and help improving your flying we have a course for you.

A little about me Aidan Davis.
I am the owner and Chief Instructor at Ascent Paragliding. I learnt to fly back in 2000 and have been instructing paragliding with the best known schools in the UK and abroad since 2009. I have flown extensively at many of the best known, and less well known spots through out Europe and beyond.

My main passion in flying is having fun. If you’re not having fun your not doing it right. That said climbing out and covering as much distance as possible is the most rewarding and satisfying form of flying for me, and it’s this knowledge and experience needed to do this that i really enjoy imparting. The process of helping develop a pilots skill set and mentor them as they move on to become a better, safer pilot and conquer new distances and flying environments.

I am the sole UK importer for Icaro Paraglider’s a brand that i feel is leading the way in the regeneration of the paragliding scene. We are working closely together to bring about a injection of vitality and vigor back to the UK flying scene.
