This is the home of Hang Gliding & Paragliding in Hawkes Bay!

We are a small group of Hang Gliding and paragliding enthusiasts.
Sites around Hawkes Bay include gentle coastal soaring to more
extreme summer thermalling.
If you are a visiting flyer to Hawkes Bay please contact one of our members
before you fly.

If you have any old photos, logos, records or history of the Hawkes Bay Hang Gliding & Paragliding club. Please let me know as I would love to add details to this site..

Thanks. – Tim Whittaker


We are mostly based in Hawkes Bay, New Zealand but sites all over the country draw us to fly.
