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.

Important notice for all pilots

Our club liaison officer has successfully renegotiated access to the Te Mata Peak landing paddock. Many thanks Euan!

Pilots have been given access to the landing paddock until it is sown for cropping and the northern paddock with the following conditions:

1. Recreational pilots only.
2. There will be no vehicle access and no other activities without landowners consent.
3. All pilots must be current members of the NZHGPA for insurance purposes.
4. Club members to be available to help with the planned working bee in the autumn to help clean up the slopes of Te Mata.

We don’t want to lose access to these landing areas. It is essential we respect these conditions. The paddocks are for landing only, please make sure no stock is disturbed and gates are left as you find them.

The forecast is looking promising for the weekend. If you are keen to meet up for a flight text me on 021 605 204. If you are unsure of landing areas etc please contact either myself or Euan on 022 048 7673.
