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.

Fawdon farm will change hands soon so East/West Hill will close as of 13th September 2021. All flying activities are to cease on this date. Mr Telford has granted us many years of pleasurable flying days on these sites and we wish him all the best.
Following BHPA guidance Northumbria flying sites are open for flying.
However the following must be adhered to:
