The site is not far from town and overlooks Piesang Valley. The take off is partly on the road and is small and there is not much room for error. The View is great looking towards Beacon Isle and Robberg. The flying can be good in a southerly wind and landing is either top landing or landing in the various open patches below amongst the houses and parks. I would not recommended this site for new pilots.

No Students.

Grading: Basic 200 flights.

This is a great thermic site about 80m high, situated about 15km from Plettenberg Bay. The site is flyable in any south variation and being a bit further away from the sea than most of the other sites means some nice height gains is possible. It's also out of George ATC control and restrictions. Great flights are possible from this site, especially towards the east going Storms River ridges way. The owner has given control to local Skywings members and so one must call them before flying. No commercial operations without permission of owner i.e no Tandems or training.

 

Rules: Skywings members only
