Hi All,

USHPA had an article long ago about some hang gliding in China, I have also found an old relic video on Youtube of hang gliding in China. But , does anyone have any recent experience/knowledge/stories popcorn about places or people hang gliding in China??

I am an American living in Sichuan, China and am an H2. There are quite a few para glider pilots here in Sichuan but only one other HG pilot that I know of. There is one flight location with a small practice hill, that is suitable for HG. As of yet I have not found a place with a large enough LZ for a pilot of my abilities. Though I know of a few places that may be landable for an H4.

Just north of Beijing at a place called MangShan there is a flight club that is also mostly PG but I know a german guy who flies HG there he has a home built powered harness and also a regular unpowered harness. The club hanger has a few trikes and also some gliders that look as if they seldom get used.

I heard that a while back they got out an older trike and flew it without a thorough pre-flight. As they banked over the lake the wing collapsed and they all fell into the lake...I didn't hear about how it turned out for the passenger.

There is a site called www.wozaifei.com that has been started by a Chinese guy who (as far as I can tell) is one of the champions for HG in China at this time. It is dedicated to HG in China. I believe he is a certified dealer for Moyes and his (http://wozaifei.taobao.com/) site also sells flytec varios.

You can also check out: (http://www.falcon0086.com/) It is a HG club on the coast a few hours south of Beijing, I have visited them. It seems that this Chinese guy went to France to learn FLPHG and has started this club/company. They are a certified Wills Wing dealer for China.

Also there is a primary site for PG in China that has a page for fixed wing stuff, and there are HG posts and a few large trike posts that site is: http://bbs.paracn.com/f-57-1.html

There are a lot of videos, that link to www.youku.com (the Chinese version of youtube) most of the time you can view them from the USA.

Use Chrome and the built in translate and you can really figure out a LOT.

I have a dream to some day help with advancing HG in China, but I am first trying to build up my flight time and skills.
