Skywings is a full colour monthly magazine published by the British Hang Gliding and Paragliding Association Ltd to inform, educate and entertain those in the sports of Paragliding and Hang Gliding.

BHPA members receive an A4 printed copy of Skywings Magazine each month through the post, as part of their membership subscription package. If you're not a BHPA member you can still receive printed copies of Skywings each month by taking out a Skywings magazine subscription through the BHPA online shop.

You can also purchase back issues of our printed magazine through our on-line shop.

A selection of past articles is also available for download on our Skywings Archive page. These articles are provided for historical interest. Links included in these articles may no longer be valid and older articles may contain technical advice or information that has been superseded.
