Launch sites near Woking?

Recommended Posts

Hi all!

I’m a newly trained Paramotor pilot. Picking up my first rig in a couple of months. Does anybody know if there are any launch sites in or around the Woking area?

Many thanks!

Sounds horrible, but it will depend who you learned with and how well you have been taught to a degree. 

Most of the club sites will want to see a level of competency. 

Welcome to the Paramotor Club! :-)

SW :D

Thanks Simon.

I did my training with Sky School in Spain and I’m in the process of finishing my training with the same school over the next few weeks in the UK..

Just wondered if there were any launch sites specifically near Woking/Guildford.

Cheers!

There aren't many that are public knowledge.  There was Barry's and really that was it.  Some pilots have there little private launch points but nothing official that I have found.  

I am looking into asking the people that run the nutmeg bootsale by Ripley about being able to use that land when not in use for flying.  Pretty much guarantees no Sunday flights but I think it could work for other days.  There are also a lot of empty farmers fields in the area that I have walked that could be used as well.  Finding the owners may be difficult though.

Good idea re. Ripley site!

yes there’s lots of suitable fields all over the place, I wonder how we’d find out who owns them. Local authority?
