Skywings On-line Magazine

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 a printed copy of Skywings Magazine each month through the post as part of their membership subscription package. If you're not a member, you can purchase back issues of Skywings magazine or take out an annual magazine subscription by visiting our on-line shop.

A skywings index is also published each year in the printed magazine. This lists all the articles, flight tests, competition reports, letters and safety items that appeared in the magazine that year. A list of Skywings indexes that are currently available online can be found on the right hand side of this page.

Skywings Online

Skywings magazine is also published online each month. This is an add-on service, and for the foreseeable future a copy of the printed magazine will continue to be delivered to all BHPA members and Skywings subscribers.

Skywings magazines published online prior to the January 2019 issue have now been archived, and are available on the Skywings Magazine Archive page.
