Originally based on Keswick Main Street we moved to our present location near the Pencil Museum back in 2005. The new location offers free customer parking, more space for us to make a mess whilst still being close to Keswick town centre.
Back in ’93 we stocked 2 demo glider and a couple of harnesses, this year is closer to 50 of each! So things have really changed. What hasn’t altered is our passion for flying, stocking the best equipment and offering the best advice to our customers. All our staff are committed pilots.
Steve Giles started flying in 1989, originally on hang gliders before starting to fly paragliders in 1991. So has been in the sport since just about the beginning. He’s flown a huge range of wings, both good and bad, and is passionate about Xc mountain flying. He also flys tandem, miniwings and speedfies. Other interests include snowboarding, splitboarding (ski touring on a snowboard) obsessively, road riding and mountain biking, and caving.
Jan Little joined the team in 2014 when her and her husband Chris moved over to the Lakes from the North East. Flying since 2006 and always keen to improve,
Free customer parking, huge range of demo wings and stock, and free advice from committed pilots over a nice cup of tea.
