The Northumbria Hang Gliding and Paragliding Club is a small, but dedicated club consisting of pilots from Newcastle-upon-Tyne and surrounding areas of Durham and Northumberland. We have a good number of excellent, uncrowded sites covering most wind directions situated in the beautiful surroundings of the Cheviots and North Pennines. Visiting pilots are most welcome but please contact the club first.
