Drawing on over 30 years of paragliding experience, using the latest machines and testing equipment, the Flight Park provide a professional repair, re-pack and testing service for individual pilots, clubs and schools.
The Flight Park is currently open for services, reserves and repacks. Our current turn-around time is about 10 days
For £60, our skilled technicians will check deployment, air and re-pack, and then check routing and deployment system, before signing off and sending it back to you. So that when the RASP reads red you can be straight out of the house and on the right hill, safe in the knowledge that your kit is fully functioning.

For £95 we provide a full glider service that includes checking the porosity of the fabric at various points along the top and bottom surface, a thorough canopy of the leading and trailing edges, cell walls, and stitching for signs of any wear and tear. Our technicians will apply small patches, where required, within reason.
All the risers, maillons, pulleys, brakes, magnets and connectors are checked. Followed by measuring sample lines and a symmetry check, finishing with a line strength check on a selection of main, mid and upper lines.
