Round Hill

For your first flights at this site, you must contact THPA local pilots for site protocols.

It has proved to be an excellent launch with so many variations of wind strengths being flown for both paragliders and hangies. 5 through to 13 knots for paragliders is typical for the hill. Easy access and retrieval. A bit awkward setting up a hang glider, there's not a lot of room. Mainly a sea breeze or synoptic site, but every now and again nice thermals have been cored up to 2000'.

Restrictions: All visiting pilots who fly Round Hill must contact locals Richard Long or Dave Lutrell of the THPA before attempting to fly here. It is an important part of the agreement with the local council that THPA must keep a log on the number of launches made from Round Hill.

Landing

Landing options available are the beach just west of launch, the local football oval about 2km west or a beach 3km east of launch.
