2015 Contest – Rain, Weather, still fun

The 2015 contest is over.  The weather was not on our side this year.  We were only able to fly on Tuesday (day 2) and Thursday (day 4).  A total of 19 pilots competed.  Pilot turn out was lighter this year, due to the weather forecasts.

We only provided awards to one competition class due to low turnout and the lack of flying.  We didn’t get much flying done, due to weather, but we had a great adventure exploring the Idaho backwoods.  ~ Connie

Annual Contest Discontinued

Hang Gliding Contests have been discontinued.

King Mountain’s Hang Gliding contest was once the largest attended Hang Gliding Contest in the USA.  Sometimes good things come to an end. 2015 was the last year that we had a national contest.

You can still fly King Mountain! There are still many fly-ins and club visits.

King Mountain and the surrounding area is a great place to fly. All the outrageous stories about BIG AIR, Long Distances, Rowdy Conditions, and High Altitude flying are true.  Come fly, have a good time, fly safe.  Visit the area, lots of things to do.

Check out the Annual King Mountain Glider Park Fly In.

The King Mountain Annual Safari is a free event that happens every summer. All birds are welcome. Free camping, great comradery.  Sailplanes, motorized sailplanes, hang gliders,motorized hang gliders, paragliders.  They all come and fly at the Annual King Mountain Glider Park Safari.
