New Logo, New Website!
New website – You may have already noticed as you’ve got this far 🙂
The old website had been with us for nearly 10 years so definitely time for a change.
The logo was pretty old as well so we’ve given it a makeover.
Out with the old: … and in with the new:
The new website is Word Press and Woo Commerce based, two of the biggest players in the game making it much easier to keep up to date with web technologies, security issues and day to day updating.
We’ll make a concerted effort to keep it up to date adding new products as they’re released or as we get them into stock. We’ll also add industry news, how toos, advice and other items of interest so keep checking back.
EXISTING Accounts on our website.
If you had an account on our old website, I’m sorry but your old password won’t work any longer and you will have to re-enter your address details.
When you want to log in, use the “Lost your password?” link to reset your password and then you should have access.
Alternatively, you can create a new account and you can let us know if you want your old account deleted. Unfortunately any old activity won’t have been moved into your new account but we have accounting records of old orders here and can forward details to you if you need them.
Your new account will keep records of any new transactions and orders along with your contact details used to process transactions.
It’s easy to set up a new account when you want to purchase something: Once you have finished selecting the items you want to purchase, click on the basket, fill in your billing name and contact details and at the bottom of this, tick the box that asks if you want to “Create an Account”.
Creating an account when you make a purchase allows you to view your account page any time in the future where you can view orders, save items onto and view a wish list, manage your addresses and change your password.

Regarding our products and stock.
We carry a huge range of equipment, spares and material that isn’t on the website but that is held in our warehouse to supply schools and dealers as well as pilots.
We try to stock everything that’s on the website but there are times when we will run out between orders or we may not have all colours in all sizes but we try our best.
If there’s anything you can’t find, do contact us as we may have it or we can certainly get it for you or put you in touch with someone who can.
Regarding Retailers, Stockists, Test Centres, stock and demos:
You can search for retailers here, however please note that whilst we receive exceptional brand commitment from the vast majority of our retailers, its impossible for them to cover all the range we carry in the UK.
If you are trying to pin point a local retailer and/or a specific product, we are available Monday-Friday 9.30am -5.30pm on 01768 779800 and can be emailed on [email protected] dot com.
Additionally we do offer a Sale or return special order system with selected retailers allowing a try before you buy on selected items that your local retailer may not stock on a day to day basis.
We additionally have a fleet of demo gliders that are available to Test Centres and Stockists so do get in touch.
Safety notices and advice.
Find safety notices easily in our news section as and when they are issued.
In the news section of our website you will also find a range of guides, articles and features relating to equipment advice. We have a schedule of items to add so keep checking back.
Once again, you can find your nearest retailer who will be able to offer any of the items that we distribute, Stockists that regularly hold their own stock or Test Centres that have their own demos.
If you find any mistakes or anything missing or you would just like to offer criticism +ve or -ve, please contact us, we are available Monday-Friday 9.30am -5.30pm on 01768 779800 and can be emailed on [email protected] dot com.
