"A big-big thank you goes out to you Andrew, for helping those
of us that are yet to become Sky-Gods. We are all part of your
ever growing family."
Our training sites are situated inland
from the beautiful Jurassic Coast area of West Dorset. We have hills that cater
for most wind directions (Easterly being our most limited) and enjoy probably
the best proportion of flyable days across all of southern England. Each flying
day we meet up on the hill we will be training on. Our four most frequently used
sites are listed below.
Have a look at the our sites on Google
maps. Click on a pin to get the location of the parking or the hill itself with

Google work out a route for you.
Flying Frenzy's training sites in Google maps
Swyre Hill is a smaller
hill overlooking the sea near the village of West Bexington
(home of Peppers by Post - famous for
growing the Dorset Naga, world's hottest
chilli pepper!) The proximity to the sea make for smooth dependable winds and in
the summer we often come here to fly in the sea breeze. The best wind direction is
(AKA Batcombe) is our largest site and a great soaring ridge. At the moment we
allow this to be an 'open' site as it is one of the best cross country ridges
in the South West with experienced pilot frequently flying to the coast at Purbeck.
The best wind direction is NW.
is a medium sized hill set on the side of the Wessex region's most impressive
ancient British hill fort. Looking out from the hill you see one of the most
unspoilt and quiet part of Dorset. The best wind direction is NNE.
Wessex Club Sites
We now have permission to train on two of
the Wessex Club sites. With both of the
above we need to adhere to the Clubs rules and stay aware of any site updates, so
please check here
Bell Hill is a wonderful
NWerly hill. Great for soaring and side landings and a good place to watch experienced
pilots thermal and head off cross-country.
White Horse is just inland
near Weymouth. A great spot for top landings though a bit of a stroll from the parking!
Best direction is just W of South.
