    Cross Country has been reflecting our passion for flying since 1988. The magazine is now read by paraglider, hang glider pilots and paramotor pilots in over 75 countries.

    The printed magazine has the highest production qualities, and you can read our digital version on your Ipad, phone or laptop. Subscriptions start at just £2.25 per issue.

    Cross Country articles are widely reccomended by instructors and coaches. With contributors like Bruce Goldsmith, Kelly Farina and Honza Rejmanek, Cross Country gives the latest knowledge in this fast-moving sport.

    The magazine review team aims to get under the skins of the newest gliders to help you make a more informed choice. We also review harnesses, instruments and other useful new gear.

    However, Cross Country's soul is in the adventure and freedom of flying. As pilots, it's a passion we share, and our magazine serves like a campfire that we can all gather around to swap stories.

    Whether it's intoxicating tales from Brazil or the Himalayas, first-hand accounts of record-breaking flights or simple stories of unexpected moments in this extraordinary sport, Cross Country aims to convey that feeling of being up there, in the moment, doing what we adore.

    Meanwhile, correspondents bring news, reviews, opinion and insightful comment on the latest happenings in the free flying world.

    Subscribers receive ten issues per year, the Travel Guide, and are also entered into the annual Subscriber's Draw to win a new wing.
