Want to Learn to Fly?

You must join the BHPA, who govern the sports of paragliding and hang gliding in the UK before you can join the DSC. Additionally you must complete some basic training before you can fly with other members of the club. There are several schools in the Derbyshire area, and lots of information on the BHPA website:

There are many reasons and benefits to joining the DSC, we’re a jolly bunch, and we want to help you have the most fun possible, while staying safe and sound, but definitely not on the ground.

The DSC  was founded in 1971, and has been providing quality to members ever since. Located in the picturesque and delightful Derbyshire Peak District, DSC has over 500 members and does all kinds of awesome things for and over the Peak.

For questions and answers, you could go say hi in our DSC forum to meet some of the other members in the community.

Speak to us today!

We’ll be happy to hear from you and answer any questions you may have, expert or beginner, hangy or floppy, let our team help you get airborne.
