Thanks Dave, hopefully they manage the job on time this time,
It would be nice if they went on to re surface Duper lane after that...

Hi Mike,

Well you have lots of choice from your location depending on wind direction as you are fairly central to Derbyshire, Pennine and Dales clubs. Not sure if you have looked at the site guides for these clubs but all give an indication of what they are like. Also look at Paragliding Map for locations and indication of conditions. I have links to these guides on one of my web pages - https://chrisdervin0.wixsite.com/cp-plus/sites-. Also look at weather and webcams here - https://chrisdervin0.wixsite.com/cp-plus/weather . I live in Aston on Trent and mainly fly DSC sites. If you are heading out to a site for the first time try and contact the relevant club to seek a site briefing by a coach if possible. Not sure if you have joined any clubs yet, some clubs/sites require you to join or have a temporary membership, others allow visiting pilots to fly or pay a day fee, all require BHPA membership to cover third party liability. If you need any more info for the DSC I will try to help. Hope to see you around.

Hi Chris,

You could try messaging Owen Thompson who lives over your way. He is in Australia at the moment but should know some local spots. I live on the south side of Derby and have used one of the local council grounds areas to be the best place, maybe there is a park near you? Obviously stay away from the public, kids, dogs, etc. Good luck and hope to see you on the hill,

Chris

Hi Chris!
Thanks for introducing yourself, and well done on getting your CP! I'm from the other side of the Peaks so don't really know the west side for best ground handling sites. There are definitely a number of pilots who live over there and who would know if there are any. Hope there's a flyable fay before you go away, and you can get out to the hills, start putting faces to names... and even have a fly!

Hi everyone,

I've just done my EP and CP in two weeks with FlySpain and have got my first wing. I'm particularly keen on getting out and practising my ground handling as I'm going away soon. Does anyone have any good spots in the (western) peak or on the East side of Manchester (I live near Stockport).

Looking forward to flying with you guys!

Chris
