Welcome
Sylmar is the world capital of hang gliding and pilots have been flying hang gliders in these mountains since 1969. The first U.S. National Hang Gliding Championships were held here in 1973. The Flight Park is located just outside of Los Angeles and we enjoy around 300 days of flying a year. Please check out the rules and site information before flying here.

Pilots and non-pilots are welcome to enjoy our flight park year 'round! Fly high, fly far, fly safe!

Thanks for visiting the Sylmar Hang Gliding Association's Web site.

Election Results
December 13, 2014

President: Greg Angsten
Vice President: Richard Shaw
Secretary: Larry Chamblee
Treasurer: Katherine Yardley
Safety Director: Frederick Wagner
Activities Directors: Lynn McLaughlin and Cyndia Zumpft-Klein
Directors at Large: Adam Newmann, Robb Derringer, and Marshall Robin

For each of the contested positions, the election results were very close. Frederick won the Safety spot by two votes, and even the spread among the DAL candidates was unusually small. Thanks to all of those who ran, and congratulations to the winners!

Road work: Following the December board meeting, Greg Angsten, Rob Burgis, Chris Daniels, Lynn McLaughlin, Ken Andrews, and Shadow spent a gorgeous (but unflyable) day working on the Kagel road. Perhaps this will help the road fare better in the coming rains.

We can now make payments to the club with Paypal. You can pay club dues, glider storage fees for spaces in the LZ, etc. by using PayPal to send the money to shga.paynow@gmail.com. To ensure that you get credit for the payment, forward your email receipt to Jay at membership@shga.com after you get it and tell him what it's for.

Report of launchable on Friday with extended sleds. TODAY....looking decidedly postfrontal. NW in the 18 to 20kt range at the top of the boundary layer. Scattered cloud deck at 15K, looks pretty widespread on the satellite. Small indication of launch windows but this is the worst looking day of the last three. Cutter or call (626) 260-1615
