Lee BlighLee Bligh- Chief Flying Instructor at Cloudbase, has been flying since 1987, has over 4500 hours in the air and has been teaching since 1993. He left the RAF in 2007 and is passionate about helping others to get the most out of their flying.

Lee has seen the sport develop from the very begining and has competed at international level throughout Europe. He was the RAF champion and RAF team captain for five years. This experience has been put to good use building a school with an enviable safety record.

Lee is justifiably proud of the standard of pilots who have graduated from Cloudbase; a standard that is frequently commented on by senior coaches in local clubs and abroad.  Cloudbase graduates have a fantastic feeling of belonging and many continue to fly together both in the UK and Europe on Cloudbase holidays.


coxy2Dave Cox-Senior Paragliding Instructor who joined Cloudbase Paragliding at the outset. He started flying gliders and motor gliders in 1984 and embarked on his first paragliding adventures in 1993 when he first met up with Lee. They have been sharing the magic of paragliding ever since throughout Europe, both in competition and on expeditions.

Dave spent 20 fun-filled years as an aircraft engineer in the RAF and during that time was Joint Services Alpine paragliding champion four times.

Moving onto powered aviation following a brief spell flying hangliders, Dave gained his PPL and microlight licence and now splits his time instructing both with Cloudbase and a microlight flying school.

The whole, perfectly formed team at Cloudbase just wants everyone to fly as much as possible, so we'll be poring over the weather forecasts and the crystal ball to eke out any flyable moments.
