ONLINE SCORING AT ALL COMPS

Flytec Element combo vario/GPS

HGFA Waiver

It is a condition of entry into any NHGC competition that the entrant must be a member of the HGFA and as such have signed the HGFA waiver.

WOW! Flying With Eagles

This is a short video of Dustan's flight when an eagle tried to join him for the ride.

Pre WOW is a success

Everyone had a good time at pre WOW. So much so we all vowed to do it again next year.
Operations went smoothly and there were many happy pilots each day including Pete and Ian who were doing the towing.
On the Saturday to spite stable conditions Mark, Allan, Fred, Dustan and Rorry stayed up for most of the day just getting acquainted with the area around the strip.
