Tolberg Paragliding Launch Site
Tolberg paragliding site is a thermic site situated a few kilometres outside of George, just off the pass on the way to Oudsthoorn. The site was collectively discovered and flown by a few senior pilots in Skywings and a windsock was erected and take off cleared by members. The site is accesssed by a path and a about 200m strenous hike up the hill next to the radio mast. This site is our main site to access the mountain range of George called the Outeniquas. Please call the club just to let them know you are flying there for safety reasons. The potential is there to fly a 100km flight.
