Fly King Mountain is looking for a local pilot to help the webmaster update the web site about soaring in the King Mountain Idaho area. Please send information and updates using the email form below. It would also be great if I could contact you about inquiries I get about pilots new to the area who want to fly King Mt.
Give me a few days to respond, I may be out soaring (I hope).
First Stop: Moore, Idaho
The road up to King Mountain, as well as King Mountain Glider Park is in Moore, Idaho. You can camp at the Park in Moore, or at King Mountain Glider Park. Please contact John K at King Mountain Glider Park prior to camping at his site.
Moore Park is located at the corner of 3150N and Main St., just off Hwy 93
43.73556°N 113.36694°W or
Camping is OK at Moore Park. The park does have restrooms, large trees with shade, and grass for your tents.
Make sure that you pick-up after your dog!
While you are in the neighborhood, take time to check-out King Mountain Glider Park, just a little North of town. They also have a fly-in every summer.
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.

Oh, and a thank-you now and then to the volunteers that support sites in this area doesn’t hurt. Help keep everything running well by following the rules and respecting private property. One more thing – HAVE FUN!
If you have a question or want to contact us, just fill in the form to send us a message. It may take a few days, but one of us usually get back once we get home from work or flying.

I have been flying since 1969, when I earned 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 2007. Started flying sailplanes in 2003 when I earned my private glider ticket and love flying, 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.
