Join the Southern Hang Gliding Club
New Membership Application
Membership of the Southern Hang Gliding Club expires for all members on the 30th of April. You will be charged for one full years membership upon joining regardless of the time of year at which you join. The cost of your first renewal is reduced roughly pro rata to account for the shorter first years membership.
For example if you join in June your first renewal will be about £40, if you join in March your first renewal will be about £10. The reason for this is that each year helmet stickers are issued in a new colour so that current members can be easily identified on our sites.
NB. As of the 1st January 2015, the slope landing and top landing exercises for paraglider pilots, have been moved to the pilot rating. All of the club's sites have rules that require thses skills. In order to fly our sites, all new paraglider pilots must have not only gained their CP rating, but also have the practical exercises of top and slope landings signed off in their pilot task book. Hang glider pilots are unaffected.
The current membership rates are as follows:
- Standard Membership: £50.00 (£56.00 in first year with induction pack)
- Non-flying Membership: £10.00
You can pay to join the Southern Hang Gliding Club by
- Cheque or
- Direct Credit Transfer (B.A.C.S.) or
- Credit/Debit Card using PayPal (extra £1.85 charged to cover fees)
New members are asked to attend an induction course as soon as possible, and preferably before flying our sites. We hold these every month at two locations: one in London (see London Wing) and one in Glynde (see Local meetings)
