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.

Flying is fun!   

Kagel Airspace CLOSED by TFR

President Obama will be in town for a couple days. As I read the TFR, flying at Kagel is prohibited from 2:00 PM Wednesday afternoon through 5:00 PM Thursday afternoon. There are differing opinions on these times though, so you may read the TFR and contact Flight Services to determine the true restrictions.
