King Mountain Volunteers
King Mountain exists because of thousands of hours (and personal funds) donated by volunteers. Most of the volunteers also work hard to keep other soaring sites open. Be sure to keep that is mind as you enjoy flying at one of the greatest soaring sites in the USA.
I wish I could remember all the names of those who have volunteered over the years. I think the first year I flew King mountain was in 1999. I will at least try to list a few names that come to me right away – I should have done this years ago.

I have been flying since 1969, when I received my single engine private pilots license. I then went on to earn my commercial, multi-engine, and instrument rating in 1970. I flew hang gliders from 1984 to 2008. Started flying sailplanes in 2003 when I received my private glider ticket and still love flying and especially soaring in gliders. I have flown King Mountain in hang gliders and sailplanes – King Mt. is great for both. I support several flying websites and love this sport. When you fill in the contact-us form, it comes to me, I no longer fly Hang Gliders, nor do I fly Paragliders, however, I will try forward your message to someone who can answer your questions.
