Home/ About/ The Paragliding Team/ Jimmy Piper

Instructor, Tandem Pilot & FlySpain sponsored Competition pilot

Gentleman Jim has been flying 10 years and he's made a great impact on everyone he has taught. If there any flaws then they are ours as Jimmy is a FlySpain homeboy, having learnt here originally with us he has gone on to be an excellent XC pilot and very good coach running some our paragliding courses. He's Norfolk born and brought up, not just a keen pilot but natural competition bike fanatic

This year Jimmy competes again in the British Open - we expect good results as last year he placed 5th in his first comp on a no frills serial class glider.  This year he´s already made personal bests of 120 & 150 k xc flights in the UK. He´s a natural pilot and a brilliant instructor and you´ll see him flying his FlySpain Mantra 6
