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 be on site to 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.
SSDR pilots are also able to use this field and are more than welcome to come and join the fun.
Permission for pilots intending to fly from the festival airfield is only granted with the purchase of a weekend ticket.
Weekend tickets with permission must be bought from this website in advance and will not be available on the gate.
Due to the size and nature of the event we must insist that all pilots intending to use the airfield at Parafest must prove current third party liability insurance at registration and receive a site brief 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 email@example.com with a copy of your policy so we can confirm it is valid for the UK and you will be allowed to fly.
If you currently have no 3rd party insurance but wish to fly from the Parafest site you can purchase the AXA policy from this link for about £140:
If you purchase the AXA policy and are not a member of any training organisation, therefore unable to prove any formal training, you may be required to undergo a brief assessment to confirm you are able to pilot a paramotor safely and competently.
