Event description

Description

Augusts ‘First Wednesday’ is an evening Hang Gliding, a first for Take Flight Aviation.

Fly like a bird over the gateway to the Peak District. Whether you think this as exhilarating or just pure insanity one thing for sure this is a first for Take Flight Aviation.

We ditch our trusty aircraft to be towed face down by a micro-light aircraft under a piece of fabric! TV presenter Matt Baker from Blue Peter flew here so get ready to experience the same albeit without a Blue Peter badge!
The tandem flight will take you up to 3,000 feet, with three times World Champion, Judy Leden MBE. Then let the movement of your body steer you around the sky - the feeling is exhilarating and unique.

Darley Moor Airfield is situated on a high plateau adjacent to the A515, two miles south of Ashbourne in Derbyshire. The airfield is operated by Airways Airsports. The longest of the runways is 01/19 at 650 metres which offers both grass and hard (if available). We intend to fly in so make sure you’ve been checked out for short field landings and farm strips.

This event has very limited spaces (6 places for Hang Gliding)
