Welcome to the Dales Hang Gliding & Paragliding Club. May your flying career with us be happy and successful. The Club was founded in 1974, after a few enthusiasts had felt the need to organise themselves in order to control the activities of the flyers and to retain the good will of the land owners.

 

We were made official by affiliation to the British Hang Gliding Association at its inception in 1975. Since those early days the Club has grown in strength and today is one of the most successful and well supported in the country. We hope that you continue the Club spirit which has always been encouraged, and that you will want to take part in our activities, and maybe even in the management of the Club at some future time.
