The Island is a proven training ground for learning to fly paragliders with many flyable days and a variety of training sites within a 5 mile radius facing most wind directions. There is a good variety of terrain with cliff sites and the chalk downs where you can progress your paragliding skills..
The Island has been the training ground for a surprising number of top British Paraglider pilots; World Champions Rob Whittall and John Pendry, British Champions Bruce Goldsmith and Barney Barnes, and World Record holder Sarah Fenwick all lived and flew on the IOW in their formative years.
