COVID-19 Update 6th November 2020
Club sites are now closed yet again!
Chapel Porth is once again open for flying. There may still be some activity by our winged friends so, please keep an eye out and avoid low overflying of the Engine houses.
The NT have appreciated our restraint in not flying the site and hopefully this will help in our relationship with them.
Access to Perranporth launch through the campsite is now permitted but, parking permit holders only are allowed to park in Haven’s car parks 7 days a week.
Non permit holders can purchase a parking ticket at the office and park in Haven’s car parks at Perran on the following days: Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday; though non permit holders do appear to be allowed to park on the other days of the week if, the reception desk isn’t too busy.
KHPA sites Members Only LIFTED
With the further lifting of restrictions and a “settling down” with sites; the restriction of members only KHPA sites can be lifted. All visitors should refer to the KHPA site guides and ideally contact club site officers or committee members for the latest information.
High Cliff remains members only at present, as it was prior to lockdown.
Welcome to the KHPA Website
The Kernow Hang Gliding and Paragliding Association (KHPA) exists to promote, facilitate and protect the free-flying activities of its members and visiting flyers by responsible airmanship and mutual understanding with the owners and those accountable for the land from which we have permission to fly.
All members of the KHPA and visiting flyers are required to be members of the sole UK Hang Gliding and Paragliding governing body, the BHPA. The BHPA administers a continuous pilot training scheme, from beginner to expert, and all members have world wide third party insurance protection.
The KHPA developed from the the Kernow Hang Gliding Association (KHGA) in 2002. Before that it was the Kernow Sailwing Association formed in 1975.
Our active flying membership extends from age 18 to 86 and the club is known as one of the most friendly in the country.
Have fun and fly safely.
There is a monthly meeting on the second Thursday of each month at 7:30 p.m. in St. Rumon’s Social Club, Penryn Street, Redruth, Cornwall TR15 2SP. Telephone 01209 215743. Non-members are welcome.
We usually publish a monthly bulletin of club news, events, articles and flying reports. If you want to be on the mailing list for the bulletin please consider joining the KHPA on the Members subscriptions page.
