The Scottish Hang-gliding + Paragliding Federation

Consisting of all the BHPA affiliated clubs in Scotland.

Ochils round of the Scottish Nationals

The weather for both weekends commencing the 5th + 12th July was such that no round could be hosted by the Ochils club. The forecast for this coming weekend 19th/20th July is currently a little ambivalent so currently BV has set the status to Amber


The weekend 19th / 20th April saw the commencement of this entry level paragliding comeptition with the AHPC hosting a round in Deeside at the same time as their Club Spring competition the McRonald Trophy which is for both paragliders and hang gliders.

The task set on Sunday 20/04/14 - Open distance from Morrone via Tomintoul (24km) with a couple of fun turnpoints consisting of Braemar Castle and Mar Lodge. Window open between 1pm and 3pm. Land by 6pm and report by 7pm. 11 pilots present and the winner of the day was Gordon Smyth

A very nice Scottish Hang-gliding video from Ben Lawers.
