Places to fly round the West Midlands

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I have moved up to the West Midlands from Kent and am an experienced Paramotor pilot. Do you know if there are any good / legal places to fly from? I was lucky in Kent I had a huge field opposite my house which I was allowed to use as and when I wanted.

I was also potentially looking for a local club to join. 

Regards


Rich

Hi Alan 

I am new to the sport and will have all my gear sorted in the next two weeks and I only live in Dudley.  I have been searching for people to fly in the area with and gain some knowledge from them . Be great to meet up and have chat at some point .

Hi Guys,

I'm looking for a place in West Midlands, Staffordshire etc. to fly paratrike. I hava all the gear ready, just need a field near to fly.
Bit about me. I live in Wolverhampton. I started paramotoring year ago but due to back problems had to abandon it for a while. The back is better now but I still wouldn't risk to take off with a paramotor hence a trike. I looking for people from the area to fly with and the field to practice.

alan_k are still flying in Wombourne?

Hi Steve,

I would love to offer you use of the field but the landowner would rather keep a low profile as the field is used for other activities occasionally, so has restricted PPG to just me, sorry.

GeoffW and I fly some times from a farm near Bridgenorth, another pilot there would be no problem.

It took me 3 weekends of driving up and down farm tracks before I got a yes. These places are hard to find and hard to keep!

Hi all. 

So we have secured a field over alvechurch .

The farmer has agreed a price of £10 per man per day . No limit on the amount of pilots and we can also camp there at a cost of £10 per night . Myself and one other person have keys for the gates . 

If you are interested in flying the field when the weather gets better and I am back in the country then get in touch . 

My number is further up on this thread . 

 

Cheers 

 

Craig

I’d like to come down and fly now and again. More variety the better 🙂

 I’m in Walsall so probably 45 mins or so to drive there which isn’t a problem.

Hi all,

 

Turning out to be a smaller world than i thought. i live in sedgley and have finished my training. I actually met alan down wombourne a while back by chance (not sure he remembers me) and then saw him again in passing at his private field. Didnt know about this forum until now but thought id join as i see a few locals. Jock has also helped me out a lot on fb. i actually bought my motor off his friend Paul.

 

Would be good to all have a meet up if this weather ever improves
