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. The Sylmar Hang Gliding Association is a 501(c)(3) charitable non-profit organization. Dues and other payments can be sent via PayPal to .

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

It's gotta fit! Dahlsten Cup, 2017.   



Access to launch restored!
December 20, 2017
Joe Greblo has worked his magic, and we now have permission to drive to the Kagel launch, following the Creek fire. The gate combination has changed, so log in to the Members area for the new combination. The forest closure order persists (for details, see the USFS website), so vehicle owners are strongly encouraged to carry a copy of our permit. This is also available in the Members area. Fire trucks and maintenance crews are busy both on Little Tujunga Canyon road and on the Forest Service road to launch, so please be alert and courteous.

Harness preflight
We're all well aware of the need to preflight our gliders, but it's easy to forget that our lives depend on our harnesses as well. Before every flight, it is worth looking over the harness.
Are the lines straight and untwisted?
Are the parachute pins fully inserted? They can snag or work loose over time.
Is there significant wear on any of the lines that go through the carabiner (harness main, parachute bridle, heads-up or knee-hanger lines)?
Are the buckles and zippers in good condition? It can be exciting if a zipper jams as one's preparing to land.
