Eagle Rise

Large inland ridge. Hang gliding only.

Takeoff

Open grassy ground ramp, suitable for hang gliders and paragliders but closed for paragliding (except school use) due to the sensitive nature of the new LZ's used by the paraglider pilots.

Landing

The paddock directly in front is sensitive and landing there could result in the site being closed. The original Pines landing paddocks are still to be used. They are to the right of launch (west) across Zig Zag Road, with the dam and windsock. Land parallel to the road but to the west (i.e. to the right) of the dam. Ensure you land there or well away from the immediate bombout options in front and to the immediate east. Observe usual gate etiquette and don't drive into paddock. Drive slowly on dirt road to minimise dust when passing houses. Before going XC, please check the map for allowed and forbidden landing paddocks in the area. Bombout elevation is 800-900'/250-270m asl.

Flight

Controlled airspace exists over launch C LL 4500. You must check current Albury VTC or Melbourne VNC for any changes.
