You wouldn't know it but I may have your white full helmet

Someone accidentally picked up my new Charlie Insider Helmet from the lz couple weeks ago and left me theirs by mistake. You'll know the difference only when you look at it as they are both relatively the same small size. Yours had a glue-on GoPro camera mount on the top front, and mine doesn't. If ...

Forest Service Very Concerned

We received a special notice from the forest service asking us to be very very careful when we are within the Angeles National Forest boundaries (route to Kagel Launch and on launch) They have raised the Fire Danger Level to "Extreme" and are reminding us that smoking in the forest is illegal unless...

High Speed Rail will affect the SHGA

Don't make the mistake of thinking that the California High Speed Rail won't disrupt your hang gliding activities. You can play a role in if and when this rail line will blast through Sylmar, Kagel Cyn, or Big Tujunga Canyon. If you're interested, attend the following meeting in the valley. http://m...

Thanks Kat, Parachute Safety Clinic Quoted from Betty Pfieffer……... Every pilot flies with safety equipment. We know it’s there but we never want to use it. But how well do we understand it and do we know when and how to use it? What are the limitations of throwing a parachute and what should ...

Meeting at 10:30 in the morning in the lz (Saturday 4/2/16)

We need the biggest turnout ever for the Sylmar Neighborhood Council elections if we hope to re-elect those representatives that look out for us. Please get here early before flying (10:30) because we'll car pool over to the polls, vote, and get back for the 11;30 trucks up the hill. If you didn't a...

Absolutely a good point Greg. It's not possible to convince a substantial majority that this and other similar expressions cause any significant problems. As such, it should be left up to the individual. Those who wish to yell whack will, and those that don't won't. The discussion simply brings refl...

This is just one more case of "men being men". Not much different than the fun of foul language, or the fun of scattering beer cans across the lawn, or the fun of peeing on car tires or in the bushes in the lz. Most of this is either viewed as harmless fun, or as indications of poor character, or so...

Considering how important this is, I think we can get a large group of pilots and family members to show up at 10 am on this coming Saturday and car pool over to the Sylmar Recreation Center at 13109 Borden Avenue to vote for our Neighborhood Council candidates.

Dan, Thanks for posting this. I've followed Diane's quest for bringing Sylmar up to the same fire protection standards as most other LA communities and she is to be congratulated for her hard work and findings. I sure hope a lot of our hang gliding enthusiasts can make it over to that meeting on Sat...

Our friends are asking us for help

Pilots, Several of our community allies have asked us to join them in signing a petition to encourage the Trader Joe company to open a store in Sylmar. The hope is that they will choose to move in to the soon to be vacant Fresh and Easy Market space behind Denny's Restaurant, and we would love for t...

I don't see where you've been properly introduced.

You've seen lots of his cartoons in HGM, Oz Report, and almost every other HG peri...
