Green Dragons was established in 1974, by an Ex-Para and flying enthusiast, Les Shaw. Our participation in competitions worldwide has seen our students, pilots and instructors reach all levels, winning awards for: Duration, Distance and Accuracy.

Andy Shaw Accuracy

‘Accuracy’ is a discipline within Paragliding where the aim is to land on a specific target of under a metre. As well as being a competitive sport, it teaches a lot about glider control, including launch (take off) and landing.

There are many skills to be learned from progressing in our sport, including the thrill of ‘flying holidays’ and planning accurate routes for duration and cross country flights, taking in miles of airspace all over the world. These skills are taught as part of our passion to see our students excel.
