Paragliders please note:
All line inspection and equipment-check are to be done BEHIND the starting area/slope to avoid blocking other pilots ready to start.
The wind picks up in the afternoon due to the local sun breeze which is predominantly from the west. When the sun breeze kicks in conditions vary a lot, thus pay attention to the lake before you start. If you can see the sun breeze on the lake, you should consider taking the gondola back down to Voss if you´re not an experienced pilot for your own safety and with respect for Voss Resort Fjellheisar.
Make sure you have enough height to cross the town center before landing. Landing between Hanguren and Voss town center (Mølstertunet) is not desirable. If you are unsure it´s better to land at the reserve landing spot at Ringheim.
For those who have a ParaPro2 license or flying from Hanguren for the first time, please talk to the start marshall before you fly. Tandem pilots wanting to fly tandem during VEKO have to be a member of Voss HPK and have to have the same or better insurance than Norwegian tandem pilots.
Have fun, be safe, and call Head of PG if you need anything or have any questions!
