SkyHigh Club Meetings are held on the first Wednesday of each month (except January and November). Club meetings are a great way to hear of other people’s flying stories, general safety matters, topics of interest from guest speakers, upcoming events and people’s plans for flying.
Each month we recognise a pilot for the best ‘Flight of the Month’. We also have a ‘Koala award’ which is bestowed on a pilot who has found themselves in a tree in the past month. There’s a saying in the club that there are only two types of paragliding pilots: those who’ve landed in a tree and those who have yet to land in a tree, so while this award is made in good humour it also serves as a good opportunity to hear about what not to do. Obviously, a tree landing can be very dangerous.
