Spare & Repairs
We’re dedicated to keeping you in the air, so we know how important it is to hold a good stock of spare parts for the equipment we supply. We stock all available spare parts from the manufacturers we deal with, even for older models. Many of the spares we hold are not listed in our online shop, as we may only sell a single piece in a year. We also hold stocks of genuine materials, so can help and advise on any repair work you may need.
Please contact us to discuss your spare part requirements, and we’ll do our best to get you back in the air.
If you require one or more replacement or spare paraglider suspension lines, please contact John at Aerofix Paragliding Service and Repair Centre who are based at the Hayloft in Stretfield Mill, Bradwell, Derbyshire. Call 01433 627195 or visit their Contact Page. They will require details of your glider make, model, size and line colour. It is also useful if you have the line diagram with codes for ordering spares, which is usually found in your glider manual/handbook.
Aerofix have an enormous stock of line and make replacements to order from fresh material, to the same specification as the original. They are also specialists in glider repairs and servicing, reserve parachute re-packs and kite repairs.
Paraglider and harness repairs
Paragliders can be damaged by the take off terrain, a bad landing or even a line-over, and occasionally will require a sticky or sewn repair to the sail cloth. More extensive damage may be caused by lines snagging on take off, collisions with trees, fences, other gliders and even by nest-making mice!
This doesn’t have to be the end of your fun. Aerofix Paragliding Service and Repair Centre are based at Bradwell, and will get you back in the air as quickly as possible.

Paragliding helmets are important pieces of safety equipment, and you should take care not to drop them on the ground, let them roll down take off, or be sat on when they’re stored in your rucksack! Your helmet is fragile and vunerable when it’s not on your head – if it is squashed from the sides damage can occur to the gel coat/paint, evident by cracks around the chin piece. A good quality helmet bag will help protect your investment from scratches. Inspect your helmet regularly. If it has been dropped, is cracked or damaged in any other way it should not be used. It is not possible to repair damaged helmets and they should be replaced.
