March 2014

This winter has been the worst since your webmaster took up paragliding. For a lot of us, the last flight is a distant memory. No photos have been received this month so its back to 2010 when Pete Rycroft and others walked up Grisedale Pike for a flydown on a nice day. Here Tom Thompson takes off and sets off down the ridge to land on the far side of Braithwaite

Brian Doub and other pilots got their first flight at Lowca (on the west coast) on Saturday 11 January. Brian says that although the wind got quite strong the air was very smooth. The photo is of Jonathan Butler flying a Gin Bolero 3. St Bees Head is in the background left and Whitehaven pier can be seen. Photo by Brian Doub

January 2014

No submissions for this months picture - December 2013 seemed to be nothing but wind and rain. This months picture was taken at the top of Clough Head in 2008. It was a superb day for the view but the flying was a cold trip downwards

Not all Cumbria flying sites involve long treks uphill. Here's a good picture of Rick Livingstone flying at St Bees on the Cumbrian Coast. The view is looking to the south and the tide's well out

September has come and gone and the temperature is notching downwards! On the 27 September a group went over to Cautley Spout and flew this great site on the eastern side of the Howgills. Ed Cleasby is the pilot on his AirDesign Volt wing. The Great Dummacks/Calder ridge is behind Ed with another CSC site, Barkin Fell, in the distance behind the wing (where conditions a little later in the day were more 'entertaining'). At Cautley, Ed Cleasby reports that "the flying was an absolute delight". Photo by John Hamlett

September 2013

In July, Steve Kitchen, Gordie Oliver and Malcolm Grout spent the day giving tandem flights to a group of people with Multiple Sclerosis. 8 flights were managed with one using a special buggy to get airborne. Here you can see preparations for take off in place for a flight off Latrigg. Great effort!

July 2013

Action at the Lakes Charity Classic! Take off was challenging but the evening flydown at the LCC proved good entertainment value. The LCC was held in Buttermere - this is the south east end of the lake with the path up Haystacks visible.
