Parafest 2017

A Flying Festival not to be missed.

Parafest is not only a great big social for the pilots and their families, anyone interested in paramotors or paragliding and non flyers are also more than welcome to join us in Wales to enjoy the festival, the music and to party with the rest of us for the weekend.

Also, aside from the aviation traders and live music there are plenty of non flying trade stands and sideshows to keep you entertained for the weekend and let’s not forget you will be in Wales, near the coast, a beautiful part of the world that can be explored beyond what Parafest has to offer.

“Parafest is the biggest and best flying event the UK has ever seen.
Whether an experienced pilot, a new pilot or a potential pilot, Parafest is the only flying event in the UK that everyone should attend”

Mark Morgan - UK team pilot and Sussex Paramotor sales.

“Flying, beer, food, fire and loads of laughs. In the welsh countryside, near the coast, near the hills, the biggest and best gathering of pilots in the UK.
100% success on the weather and 1 in 10 chance of getting a good looking marshal ( or you could end up with me ) ”

Stu Mowatt - paramotor pilot and Parafest marshal.

“After being in the business for 20 years Parafest Is the best flying event I have ever been to”

Paul Bailey - Bailey Aviation

“Parafest was our first trade show and we can’t wait for next year. We sold 4 motors and 4 wings. It put us firmly on the map, we will be back”

Trevor Drury - TAG Paramotors

“A wonderful and friendly atmosphere. Parafest is the only place in the UK for the trades to exhibit and meet their customers”

Clive Mason - CM Paramotors

“Great festival, great atmosphere. We sold a paramotor which was delivered within 2 weeks. We will definitely be attending 2017”

Steve Page - Scout Paramotors UK

“A great weekend that every pilot should have marked in their calendar. Parafest is quickly establishing itself as an annual pilgrimage that every pilot should go to.”

Mike Fletcher - FLYKANDY

“I have attended the previous Parafest events and thoroughly enjoyed them both. Very much looking forward to the third one. This is one event not to be missed”

Mike Chilvers UFLY4FUN

“As an instructor every new group of students always has at least one that started with a trip to Parafest.
These students often tell me how helpful it was to be able to see and try a range of kit, talk to the dealers, meet the pilots and see loads of flying. They all look forward to next years event when they will be able to fly there themselves.”

Ric Womersley - UK team pilot and paramotor instructor

“Parafest, it’s a festival you can fly at.!
The location is great, the food is good, the music is live, the atmosphere excellent.
It’s a very unique flying event, just what the UK community needed

Did i mention that the AC Nitro is the lightest machine in the world, ever, ever ever?”

Vince White - Custom Air, UK importer for Air Conception Paramotors
