Welcome to the wonderful world of paragliding, the world’s fastest growing and most accessible form of free flying aviation. Paragliding is the simplest way to learn to fly quickly, easily and offers you the opportunity to see the world from a totally different perspective. The freedom and pleasure you’ll enjoy from this pure form of flying are absolutely unsurpassed!
The Newcastle Paragliding Club assists in managing flying sites in the Newcastle coastal area. Also, there are other sites in the Hunter Valley. They are sensitive sites because of airspace restrictions and landowner considerations. These sites offer excellent flying depending on prevailing weather conditions and pilot skill level.
To fly in Australia you must be a licenced pilot with the HGFA and be financially current with your HGFA membership.
