Flyability’s aims


Flyability aims to encourage disability awareness and education amongst:

  • BHPA Members
  • School Instructors
  • Club & Coaches
  • All Pilots

We are working as much for all BHPA members as we are for disabled people. Everyone learns – everyone benefits.


Flyability wants to encourage, motivate and provide disabled people with the opportunity to:

  • Access the sport of hang gliding and paragliding
  • Train as pilots in existing BHPA schools alongside non-disabled trainee pilots
  • Be accepted as pilots within mainstream BHPA schools and clubs
  • Experience ‘free flight’ through tandem hang glider and paraglider air-experience flights
