Paraglider and hang glider pilots have the many free flying sites of North Wales and Snowdonia National Park all within easy driving distance from the festival site.
Experienced local pilots will offer details and site briefs to all visiting pilots depending on the forecast conditions.
Paramotor and powered hang glider pilots have a dedicated field to use for the duration of Parafest.
Sub 70 trikes and SSDR pilots are also able to use this field to come and join the fun.
Due to the size and nature of Parafest we must insist that all pilots intending to use the airfield must prove current third party liability insurance at registration and receive a site brief on the rules and no-fly zones before flying.
Insurance policies for UK paramotor pilots accepted at Parafest include current BHPA membership with a power rating, the AXA insurance policy administered from Austria and the PMC policy for PMC members.
If you are a non UK pilot or have a different policy than any of the above and wish to fly at Parafest please email firstname.lastname@example.org with a copy of your policy so we can confirm it is valid for the UK.
If you currently have no 3rd party insurance but wish to fly from the Parafest site you can purchase the AXA policy for about £140 from this link: http://www.flugschulen.at/axa/english/mhaft.html
Permission to fly from the festival airfield is only granted with the purchase of a pilot weekend ticket.
Weekend tickets must be bought from this website in advance and will not be available on the gate.
