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.
