What our readers say
Love it … keeps me dreaming and sane through British winters.
Ruth Churchill Dower
I love the new format of the print magazine. Beautiful to look at and much easier to read.
I read Cross Country for the brilliant flying stories from all round the world and the global news.
The magazines are great. They keep me going when I’m not flying.
Well done. Like it big time. Much more serious, and really makes the feelings of paragliding visible
Hans Henrik Ter-BorchFacebook
Cross Country is an institution. It helps define the sport, and pushes the limits knowledgeably and safely.
Well Done XC. As a relatively new pilot I am starved of information. Keep up the good work.
I got the Travel Guide – it is fantastic!
Keep up the great work – no one does better
