Fly With Us

When once you have tasted flight,
you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward,
for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.
— Leonardo da Vinci

Welcome to the Derbyshire Soaring Club

One of the largest hang gliding and paragliding clubs in the UK, the DSC is based in the heart of the beautiful Peak District National Park. We cater for everyone, beginners, intermediates or seasoned veterans, and hold various educational and social events throughout the year. The club also has a team of experienced and friendly coaches to help you get the best out of your flying. We have hills suitable for beginners and yet boast sites that offer some the best XC potential in the country. Due to agreements with farmers and landowners all our sites are strictly members only – so join us!
