Following the easing of restrictions we are back to flying, all sites other than Chapel Porth are now open but, please adhere strictly to social distancing guidelines and also those published on the BHPA website.
Further to the situation at Chapel Porth, the site is now closed until further notice including, any flying on the ridge between St. Agnes and Chapel Porth beach.
Also note there is no access to Perranporth launch through the campsite, either on foot or, vehicle; even if the barrier is up as the site remains closed at present.
KHPA sites Members Only (Temporarily)
With all that has been going on and taking into consideration the need at present to get information out quickly and accurately to pilots, before a site gets compromised, until further notice; all KHPA sites will be members only and the current reciprocal arrangements with other clubs is suspended.
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.
