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.

Keep Your Head on a Swivel!
As all of us know, flying the Kagel Ridge can be very challenging when multiple pilots are in the air. Your head MUST be out of the cockpit at all times. Clear turns always, and be aware of your fellow pilots in terms of location, direction, intention, and skill level.

Never demand airspace from another pilot simply because you believe you have "right of way". The other pilot may not be aware of your presence, or simply may not agree with your ideas on "rules of the road". Never hesitate to abandon your line if you feel it is unsafe, or about to become so.

Bottom line, keep your head on a swivel when you are up in the air, whether you are flying the Kagel ridge or the big skies of the Owens Valley. You never know when someone or something might be headed your way!
