Welcome

Welcome to the Cascade Paragliding Club community website.  If you are looking for information about our club, its flying sites or just general paragliding/hang gliding information in the region, you may find what you are looking for on one of the menu tabs above.  If you don’t see what you are looking for, feel free to send us an e-mail at CASCADEPARAGLIDING@GMAIL.COM.    The little grayish box that originates in the lower right corner of the web pages is our chatbox linked to telegram.  You can open it and customize the location on your browser.  Our club is dedicated to the advancement of paragliding and hang gliding in this region, through the education of its members in safety and general knowledge of the sport, as well as the development and maintenance of local flying sites and through the comradeship of fellow pilots.

The primary radio frequency used at local sites is 151.925.  Pilots may be operating on other frequencies also.  Please have a radio and ask what frequency those pilots present are using!

sky...@gmail.com: We did have fun flying today. Almost all hangs but a couple of bags. It looked good for bags nearly all day, as long as you stayed out front. John S On Friday, April 9, 2021 at 9:24:32 PM UTC-7 wrote: > Yes. I'm bringing my hang glider. > > On Friday, April 9, 2021 at 8:52:57

Kiwanda - Public Complaint Regarding Falcon Mating Season
Steve Forslund: Bob they have nested ( if you can call it that amazing where they will later an egg) on the low corner in the past, any little flat surface seems to work. When they are on eggs we do need to be aware and not spook them off though they seem fairly acclimated to us. People mean well but birds of
Your invitation to Wells Land LZ
Dan Wells: Hi local and visiting pilots, Wells Land (no relation to me) has been available to us for quite a while. Just not used often because LongSword is so convenient. Now that it will be the HQ for the Applegate Open its important that pilots be more familiar with it ahead of the event. At
Kiwanda - Public Complaint Regarding Falcon Mating Season
Bob Horning: I could be wrong, but I would be rather surprised that the particular outcropping is a nesting area. It may be where falcons and other birds fly to, sit on, but it’s rather low and large waves come up over a great deal of it. The nesting sites would be on the outcropping directly SW of there,

Mark Sanzone: This is news to me. Let’s update the site guide to maintain ground clearance unless you are on the dune. Nesting birds on the cape, etc. Mark Sent from Yahoo Mail for iPhone On Friday, April 9, 2021, 8:02 AM, Cascade Paragliding Club < wrote: Hey Everyone, Got an
Kiwanda - Public Complaint Regarding Falcon Mating Season

Kiwanda - Public Complaint Regarding Falcon Mating Season
Cascade Paragliding Club: Hey Everyone, Got an email from an individual that was out at Kiwanda and was upset about a male pilot that did a 'touch and go' in a falcon nesting area in the last day or so. After trading a few emails to get the details this was what they described had happened: "I'm sure it was not done on
Silver Star Flight report
Serge Romano: Ayvri is indeed an awesome tool, especially when used in “multi-player” mode and you can relive and analyze the decision making process that went into a flight. On Wed, Apr 7, 2021 at 8:20 PM Luke wrote: > Thanks as always for the thoughtful updates and nice to live the
Silver Star Flight report
Luke: Thanks as always for the thoughtful updates and nice to live the flight vicariously through you and the ayvri file. I hope to get up there when the wildflowers awaken. I wonder how many people are using this site (AYVRI) to view flights. It seems like a decent way to learn some characteristics

Dead calm until 2 pm, then very light thermal activity with big gaps between cycles. No eagles or crows flying. Inversion top around 5200’ where it was a wild rodeo. Stunning views
