Lion’s Head


For now, this is just a collection of links and resources for flying Lion’s Head. It is a stunning place to fly, but due to complicated local weather conditions, it can soon get very dangerous (and yes, experienced pilots have sadly passed away here). Treat it with respect.

Read Stephan Kruger’s excellent four-piece blog on flying Lion’s Head.


Take note of the Glen Club wind talker: (Tandems stop flying when it hits 24 km/h).
