Yet another amazing passenger and an incredible experience sharing the air with Adam. We were lucky to fly Devil’s Dyke on the South Downs, one of the most beautiful sites in England. With scenic views all the way to the North Downs towards London and beautiful views of the South coast when high, it is clear to see why this flying site is so popular.
We got to the Devil’s Dyke pub on a cool September morning and were greeted with some lovely flying conditions. The cool morning and clear skies allowed for excellent thermal development in the flat land out the front of take-off. After a short introduction to paragliding and a safety brief we took to the air, launching from the gently sloping hill in front of the pub. Once in the air, we used the gently rising air to gain loads of height above take-off and enjoy the views over the back towards Brighton and along the South Downs.
