NSW has some amazing flying sites and a host of clubs that cover NSW. While not every region people can fly has a club, contacting the closest club to where you might be flying can lead to  some great flying site advice and maybe someone else to fly with. The good news is if you are a NSW pilot you do not have to pay additional memberships to fly at other NSW clubs. The NSWHPA has made sure that all NSW sites are free to fly at for NSW pilots. 

We're still developing these pages but in the future you can expect to find more details on both clubs and flying sites.

PG & HG Novice Sites
http://www.flysydney.com.au/pages/flying-sites-list

Cooks Terrace - This is a great fun novice site that is very popular due to the large grass park and non-metered parking right next to the site. Check out the paragliding and hang gliding site guides for more details.


Long Reef (NE) - This is a good novice site to build up your hours with easy ridge soaring and great views North to Whale Beach. Take care on Summer days as the sea breeze will nearly always strengthen. Check out the paragliding and hang gliding site guides for more details.


Long Reef (SE) - This is a good novice site to build up your hours with easy ridge soaring and great views down to Manly. Check out the paragliding and hang gliding site guides for more details.
PG & HG Intermediate Sites

Newport - This intermediate site is in two halves, the section below the road, and the much larger section hill above. Check out the paragliding and hang gliding site guides for more details.
Mona Vale - A deceptive intermediate site, quite small and effected by compression. However popular with hangliders who in easterly breezes fly around the corner into Bungan. Check out the paragliding and hang gliding site guides for more details.


Warriewood - An enjoyable intermediate site that allows pilots to perform 360's and other manoeuvres. Check out the paragliding and hang gliding site guides for more details.


Turimetta - A tricky intermediate site with a lot of changes in direction of the cliff face. Check out the paragliding and hand gliding site guides for more details.


SYDNEY HANG GLIDING CLUB

This club fly all around Sydney and have been known to fly the sand dunes whenever there'e a stiff strong breeze. They don't have any sites that they formally manage or fly at. They are however masters at flying centimetres off the deck. We call it dune flying or dune gooning and it's a real buzz.

BLUE MOUNTAIN HANGGLIDING CLUB

Founded in March 1987, the  Blue Mountains Hang Gliding Club is committed to providing safe and regular flying opportunities throughout the Blue Mountains and Central Tablelands to the west of Sydney NSW for all of it’s members, from novice through advanced. Regular activities include monthly Club competition days, novice days, towing days and heaps of social flying. We also hold regular trips away to other well-known flying areas.

The BMHGC welcomes all HGFA pilots to come and fly with us at sites in the region. Safe flying is our top priority. With prior contact, an experienced club pilot will be available to introduce you to our sites and give a detailed site briefing. We cater for pilots of all abilities, and invite all pilots who are keen and enthusiastic to come and explore the excitement of inland flying. Feel free to contact the Club executives with any questions or queries that you may have.


Club Contact
Club website: http://bmhgc.blogspot.com.au/
    
The BMHGC manages flying sites in the Blue Mountains and the Central Tablelands. These include: Mt Blackheath, Wolgan Valley, Sofala and Bathurst. For a detailed site introduction and site guide contact the club. A site guide is posted Mt Blackheath takeoff with landing paddock access rules signposted at the entry gate. All sites are open to visiting pilots. These sites are suitable for launching both HG and PG with the exception of the site in the Wolgan Valley, which is unsuitable for PG. Current financial HGFA membership is compulsory for all pilots flying from these sites. This is a legal requirement for flying HG and PG in Australia. HGFA website.

 

Mount Blackheath Site Guide
Mt Blackheath is the main flying site for the BMHGC. The main launch area faces West and consists of an astroturf area for paragliders and a steel ramp for hang gliders to launch from.

This is both a spectacular and intimidating site which is difficult to understand without a lot of local experience. The site has a lot to offer, with everything from smooth evening soaring to massive powerful thermals to push you on your way to excellent XC flying.

This site guide is not a complete introduction to the site, that is something that required specific attention to the conditions on the day, on the hill, and is why we ask visiting pilots to get a site introduction each time you fly until you are experienced enough to make the call yourself. It continues to be expended with further posts linked to below.

The Westerly facing site has the following restrictions for both hang glider and paraglider pilots in addition to the Privileges and Limitations imposed by the HGFA operations manual.

    •    Student - There are currently no PG/HG schools operating from Mt Blackheath
    •    Supervised - Require the advice of a BMHGC safety officer on site before flying
    •    Intermediate - Require the advice of a BMHGC safety officer on site before flying
    •    Advanced - No restrictions


The North ramp is for ADVANCED pilots only and is very dangerous. 

All care is taken here to describe the Mt Blackheath flying site, however it is significantly dependant on the weather. Paragliding and hang gliding are inherently dangerous sports. Mt Blackheath, due to its unpredictability and exposed mountain location is a dangerous site to fly from. Take the advice and experience described here and talk directly to BMHGC pilots about their experiences to give yourself the best chance of success.

Stanwell Park

Jus 60 mins south of Sydney and 15 minutes north of Wollongong is one of Australia's most scenic and enjoyable flying sites.

 

One of the premier flying sites in Australia. We have a unrivaled history stretching back to some of the first ever experiments in flight done by Lawrence Hargrave in the late 19th Century. Today, as then, we have the privilege of flying a beautiful stretch of the coastline between Sydney and Wollongong. 

This is the web-site of the Stanwell Park Hang Gliding and Paragliding Club (SPHGPC). The role of the club is to maintain the flying site for the use and enjoyment of the membership and promote the sport within the community. We cater for pilots of all abilities and try to foster an atmosphere of safety, encouragement and enjoyment. If you're just thinking of trying flying out then take a look at our instructors section.

 If you're a visiting pilot or interested in flying the site (Bald Hill) then remember it's a requirement of the land owner (local council) that you must be a member of the club and familiar with the rules before you can fly the site.

New ? Never flown Stanwell before or just rusty about the rules. Here are four links to essential information you should familiarise yourself with before you fly the site.

 

Club Membership

We'd love you to join the club either online or offline.

Tongarra

 looking back down at the tongarra cliff launch

looking back down at the tongarra cliff launch

Approximately 15 km from the Illawarra coast with a mixture of coastal and inland flying conditions. Overlooking Macquarie Pass, 90 km SSW of Sydney. From the Robertson pie shop take the Jamberoo Mountain Rd and turn left into Lees Road. When you reach the escarpment lookout, proceed for another 100m and take the first turn left to launch.


TAKEOFF
This is a hanggliding cliff launch for advance pilots only. Take extra care on launch. When you approach launch make sure that both wings have equal exposure to lift. The bombout paddock is quite a long glide out (about 5.5 to 1), so we generally turn left after launch. 620m / 2030ft asl

LANDING
Bottom landing is on the north side of the Illawarra Highway. It's the second paddock south of the dairy shed (milking shed). This is a private property and we have a good relationship with the farmer. Top landing is possible but expect some turbulence being so close to the escarpment.


 

Mount CAMBEWARRA

This club fly at a great site near Nowra known as Mt. Cambewarra.  

Restrictions: This site can only be flown on weekends. Before flying here you must contact the duty air officer at Nowra Naval Airbase for clearance on (02) 4424 1211 or after hours (e.g. weekends) 0408 975 825 (see here under "HMAS Albatross"). If flying north to Stanwell Park you must contact Sydney Flight Service (quote approval no. HJ91-02). Altimeters and reserve parachutes are mandatory.


Flight
Height limit 7500ft asl within 15km radius from take-off, except for south of the Shoalhaven River naval air space restrictions no. R437.


Hazards/Comments
Beware of turbulence below and in front of take-off on thermic days and in crosswind conditions.

 The key flying sites in the Mid North Cast of NSW

The key flying sites in the Mid North Cast of NSW

Seal Rocks NE
A perfect spot for a floater.  The launch is a grassy park opposite the shop in Seal rocks. from here you can hop over the back onto bigger hills and cruise up the coast toward smiths lake and back.

Booti Booti - pacific palms NE
Probably the best NE coastal site in NSW. A spectacular headland with some of the best surf beaches for a morning dip. Fly down toward seal rocks if you need a cross country feel.  A key and 4x4 is required. 

Nellies SW
An awesome inland site that provides some of the most enjoyable winter and spring flying relatively close to the coast.  Absolutely fantastic when a weak seabreeze and westerly are doing battle.  Flights back to the coast are very enjoyable.

 Middle Brother SE launch

Middle Brother SE launch

Middle brother SW & SE
One of the main launches in the area.  The SE launch has a ramp and the SW has an earth mound.  Common to have a flight north toward Kempsey or to a local beach from here.  (VHF radio is required)


North Brother NE
The best known and premier site of the region.  Great flying early in the day before the Seabreeze comes in.
(VHF radio is required)

Grants Head SE
A fun little coastal site with easy top landing.  Ideal for an afternoon play in a floater.

Lighthouse Dunes
A good size set of dunes suitable for s spring Southeaster.

Harrys Lookout E
A lookout above shelly beach in Port Macquarie.  Great for a quick fix .  If the direction is right a trip south to the lighthouse and back is easy when flying something with a little performance.
A Key is required for the gate.

Yarras NE
A good inland hill with loads of potential.  It’s a little out of the way so does not get flown a great deal, but is certainly worth the effort.  Some big flights have been had from here.

Racecourse NE
Great fun if you like flying whilst rubbing your belly along the hill and landing wherever you like.  Very smooth lift on this grassy headland

visiting pilots

If you are from out of town and would like to fly the Central Coast situated in the Gosford/Wyong/lower Hunter area you will need to become a member of the CCSS Club as a “visiting pilot”. Of course you must already have current membership with the HGFA as an Australian or visiting overseas pilot.

Download our membership form at the Club website and tick the visiting pilot box. Contact info for our many Safety Officers is also on the site.


Visitor membership is free of charge and means we can ensure you receive a comprehensive site safety briefing before you fly. We also need to keep a log of all pilots flying our sites so we can prove to the relevant authorities just how popular our sport is and hence keep our flying sites open!

We directly manage four sites in National Parks at Crackneck Lookout Bateau Bay, Cromarty Hill Forresters Beach, Moonee Moonee Beach and Wybung Headland and fly informally from several other coastal locations.

We also co-manage with the Newcastle Hang Gliding Club the beautiful Lake St Clair in the Hunter Valley and Catherine Hill Bay.

We work cooperatively with several hang and para gliding schools and can facilitate an introduction to these professionals.

Our members fly hang gliders, paragliders and microlights...some of us are tri-wingual!.

We fly on the coast at our local sites and travel often for weekends as a social group north and south to fly Stanwell Park, Northern Beaches and the Mid North Coast sites around Laurieton and Port Macquarie. Every second year or so we venture up to Rainbow Beach in Queensland for a week and fly en route at Byron Bay.

We drive to fly inland at Manilla, Corryong, Wellington, The Watagans, Broke, Gulgong, Hooley Dooley, Lake St Clair, Blackheath, Tumut, Johns River and Denman both recreationally and in competitions. We use aero tow, static tow, scooter tow, vehicle tow and good old fashioned mountain launches to get in the air

 

Come fly with us - we are family friendly and often camp as a group to share the stories from the day.

ACTHPA

The ACT hanggliding & paragliding association fly and look after the key flying sites around Canberra including the sites in NSW such as Lake George.

The ACT Hang gliding and Paragliding Association (ACTHPA) is the club for all hang gliders, paragliders and their motorised forms in the region. The region is excellent for carbon-free flying and there are some great areas for motorised flight as well. We have many excellent sites, local paragliding instructors and an active pilot community. We maintain a number of launch sites, and wind talkers in the local area to help in deciding when and where to fly.

Club meetings are held on the first Tuesday of each month at the Canberra Labor Club in Weston Creek starting at 7.30 pm. At the meetings we talk about flying and put members in contact with each other. We have a strong social scene.

If it is 'on' then you can pretty much guarantee that someone will be out flying. If you are planning to go for a fly at one of the sites listed on the "Flying Canberra" tab of the website, please tag a message on Twitter @ACTHPA so you can meet up with others. The wind talker provides current wind speed and direction and records this information for the previous 12 hours.  The weather section links to the Bureau of Meteorology and other useful weather information.

If you are a visiting pilot, remember to contact one of the locals prior to flying any site.

Contact: Terri Jewell (President) - 0411 236 715


Lake george site- nsw

The primary site used is known as the South launch.  Access is from Weereewa Lookout carpark.  The launch is a small hike up the hill from the eastern side of the car park near the fence. The path will take you through a small gate (please keep it closed) and onto the ridge. A picture is attached below that gives you an idea of the layout of the land.

Pilots can either land on top of the escarpment on launch or use anywhere on the lake bed. If you require access to the lake bed please contact someone from the club committee for a key to the gates indicated on the map. Please click on this Google Map Link for directions to Weereewa Lookout carpark.

honeysuckle site - tumut nsw

The Honeysuckle site at Tumut provides launches for both paragliders and hang gliders.  A dedicated ramp has been built for hang gliders.  The launch is owned by the Forestry Corporation of NSW (FC) and adjoins the Red Hill State Forest.  The ACTHPA has a permit issued by the FC granting access to the site.  The landing zone is on private property.

Use of the site and granting of the permit by the FC is conditional on the development of a Site Safety Plan and adherence to a number of Activity Conditions.  These documents are linked to this page and you should familiarise yourself with the requirements of these documents and be prepared to abide by them before flying at Honeysuckle.

Importantly:

  • Do not drive off the marked roads or tracks
  • No smoking on launch or landing
  •  The permit does not cover events and any planned events will require additional approval from FC

The landing zone is private property and the landowner requests we stay on marked tracks only. Do not drive through paddocks. Normal farm etiquette applies, please leave open gates open, and closed gates closed.

A map of the site can be viewed on google maps by clicking on this link - Honeysuckle Site Map

Before flying at Honeysuckle, ensure you have reviewed the risk and activity rules agreed with the Forestry Corporation here - Forestry Permit Activity Conditions and Site Safety Plan.  It is a requirement of flying at Honeysuckle that you agree to abide by these conditions.

The FVPi club run various activities outside of annual fly-ins such as, Cattle Musters/Spotting, Fly to Bush Camping,Fly to Pub Lunches etc.

It is with great enthusiasm and dedication to the sport from all board members of FVPi, that they are bringing to life what will undoubtedly be the premier Paramotoring Club for Sydney, if not Australia.
