Two Locations are available:
1. Bald Hill, Stanwell Park is the primary site used, with amazing views of Grand Pacific Drive. Undoubtedly one of the premier coastal flying sites in the world, located just 1 hour south of Sydney. We are able to utilise this site when the winds are from the south/southeast. The site is about 500 feet high above the sea level, providing spectacular views of Grand Pacific Drive, the Royal National Park and the coastal escarpment.
2. Hill 60 is a great flying site when the summer north easterly winds are blowing! Located just 25 minutes south of Stanwell Park, Hill 60 is almost surrounded by water, overlooking beautiful swimming beaches, the five islands of Wollongong and Big island, a bird sactuary just offshore. So you'll be sharing the air with sea birds, large and small, and the north easterly winds make for warm sunny weather. Great hang gliding conditions, and we're the only school flying here!
