"I really enjoyed my time training with YX paragliding. Mick is a great instructor, always giving clear instructions and a very reassuring voice on the radio for first flights! All of my training days had a very practical approach whilst still learning the theory along the way. The small teaching groups allow you to progress quickly and mean no waiting around. I thoroughly enjoyed learning to fly with Mick and the team and would not hesitate to recommend YX paragliding to anyone starting out."

"Thank you so much Mick for making my dream come true! I’ve been wanting to fly for about twenty years, and I am now qualified to do so, and that’s all thanks to the wonderful training I received from Mick and Chris. I always felt supported and encouraged from the first day during my training with XY Paragliding, Mick is great at making you believe in your own abilities, giving you confidence in yourself and belief in what you are doing.
They have a unique friendly and relaxed school, always welcoming first timers, I’ve made friendships that will last a lifetime, and have already spent time in the air with some of the other pilots since qualifying. I’m still in touch with Mick and the other pilots, and intend to fly with them as as often as I can now that I’m qualified - see you in the sky!"

"It takes a special kind of person to have your life in their hands and for you to trust them completely from the word "go". I never had any disillusiones towards Micks abilities as a instructor, and he proved me right time and time again. Mick is a fantastic instructor, his light hearted nature and joy for paragliding made learning extremely enjoyable. If you want to soar like a bird and become part of the most rewarding sport then Mick Bird-jones is your man!"

I have just passed my Club pilot rating with YX paragliding over 8 visits between July and September. I cant recommend Mick and his team highly enough. Good selection of flying sites, good instruction with balance between safety, learning and having a good time. Well worth the trek. Thanks to Mick, Hayley, Dave and Chris.

"On retirement I thought I should do something extraordinary and decided to learn to fly a paraglider. I now have my own wing and a licence to fly. Without any doubt, I owe my success to Mick and his team of instructors who’s skills, professionalism and sense of humour enabled me to achieve my goal and I would not hesitate to recommend YX Paragliding to anyone of any age who has the desire to learn to fly."

Sean Clark Passed my CP rating today. Just want to say thank you to Mick and Hayley and all the XY paragliding instructors for helping me get there in the end. The professionalism of the XY paragliding team is second to none. I'm hard work at times so thanks Mick for not giving up on me. I can't wait to fly with you all soon.
