Lead an Active Life

You have to rise up high to make the world realize,
you are an entity which is not bound to any limits.

Powered Paragliding
Hang Gliding
Fixed Wing LSA Aircraft


Grasslands Flying Club was founded during August 2014. The exclusive aim of the club is to:

  1. promote participation in Power Paragliding, Paragliding, Hang gliding and other Fixed Wing activities;
  2. develop and promote skills and expertise in these sports and make such expertise available to club members and
  3. contribute to the development of PPG, PG, HG in South, and Southern Africa.

However, in achieving these goals, the focus of the club is to create an environment for members in which they can relax and enjoy themselves whilst exercising their particular flying hobby.

You are encouraged to contact any of the committee members if you require more information regarding these exciting activities. Should you wish to observe the flying personally, please do not hesitate to visit us at our field. You may just end up with a free demonstration flight with one of the many pilots frequenting the field.

We fly most mornings and afternoons and the best time to visit the field is probably on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon between 16h00 and sunset.

See you there!
