Newcastle Paragliding Club

Welcome to the wonderful world of paragliding, the world’s fastest growing and most accessible form of free flying aviation. Paragliding is the simplest way to learn to fly quickly, easily and offers you the opportunity to see the world from a totally different perspective. The freedom and pleasure you’ll enjoy from this pure form of flying are absolutely unsurpassed!

The Newcastle Paragliding Club assists in managing flying sites in the Newcastle coastal area. Also, there are other sites in the Hunter Valley they are sensitive sites because of airspace restrictions and landowner considerations. These sites offer excellent flying depending on prevailing weather conditions and pilot skill level.

Visiting Tour Groups, Clinics Or Events

All visiting groups whether they be for tours, clinics or events must contact NPC before arriving.

They should advise the club of their intentions together with the expected number of visiting pilots and the organisers' details.  

Newcastle paragliding launches supports a large community of free fliers, commercial tandem operations, a number of local schools and clinic providers.  The club needs to be made aware of groups of visiting pilots to ensure that flight operations can be operated safely, especially during times of high usage e.g. mitigate congestion issues by utilising a duty pilot.


To fly in Australia you must be a licenced pilot with the SAFA and be financially current with your SAFA membership.

International Visiting Pilots

If you are an international pilot you still require SAFA membership to fly in Australia. Please visit the SAFA website HERE for temporary membership. It can be done online, so please do so before arriving on our sites.
