Hat Creek Rim was pioneered by the Shasta Sky Sailors since 1975. It's been developed and maintained by that same club since that time. We've held the Use Permit there since the Forest Service first required it in 1996. There is one local pilot living at the site. Most users travel hours to get to this remote site but it is well worth the drive. It is known for its consistent summertime evening glass offs when pilots can often find abundant smooth buoyant air. It is common to see the HG's take off earlier than the PG's while they wait for lighter launch winds. It is a good idea to hook up with Locals/Regulars/Frequent Fliers at the site. 2m Ham Radio simplex frequency 146.415 is used and monitored by locals on flying days and most summer weekends you will find pilots here. Making contact through the locals Yahoo Group can help to find out current information.
