SkyHigh Paragliding Club
Welcome to the SkyHigh Paragliding Club!
SkyHigh is based in Melbourne and is one of Australia's largest and most active free flight clubs. We are dedicated to helping paraglider pilots ... particularly new pilots, get the most out of this fantastic sport ... in a safe way. Please see our Safety Guidelines.
If you don't yet have a Paragliding Pilot License, check out the Training section for a list of License Courses.
On this site you can make Payments for Membership, Swing-n-fling, Annual Dinner, Merchandise etc (when items are available).
The Club offers so many services to pilots that it is impossible to list them all here but most importantly we enable pilots to get to know each other and share their skills and flying plans. Please look through the pages of this website to see some of the things that the Club provides:
- New Pilots ... lots of info for new pilots
- Visiting pilots
- Membership: New Member, Renew Membership, Non-Flying Membership, Check HGFA, Check Membership
- Resources: Weather, Safety Officers, Flying Sites, Training, Equipment, Newsletter, Merchandise, Books & Mags, Videos, Links and more.
- Calendar: Club Events - Fly-ins, Swing-n-flings, Meetings, NTVO, Dinners and Parties
- Forum ... this is where you can keep in touch with all the latest info, including other pilots' flying plans.
We regularly meet on the first Tuesday of each month (except January and November). We fly whenever its on!
Our members travel throughout the state, nationally and internationally to fly. Our goals are to foster a new pilot's first 20 hours in a supervised environment, the ongoing development of all pilots and to develop the sport of paragliding in general.
For once you have tasted flight, you will walk the earth with your eyes turned skywards, for there you have been and there you will long to return.(Leonardo DaVinci)
SkyHigh Paragliding Club Incorporated since 6 September 1990 as a not-for-profit organisation under the Victorian Associations Incorporation Act 1981. For a glimpse of the Club's early history, members should have a read of 'SkyHigh - The Early Years'. Fantastic!
