Airborne Pursuits

Taking to the skies for recreational activities is an ever more popular pursuit. There's a whole host of different modes of flight out there, from the serene to the death defying. The North York Moors is one of the largest open expanses of land in England and as such is the perfect place to take to the skies in a sparsely populated place. The magnificent scenery has made this area a favourite with hang-gliders, balloonists and small plane pilots. On a fine day, the timeless agricultural scenery and rolling hills provide a breath-taking experience. There are many different organisations and flight schools who offer a chance for beginners to get involved.
