Club and visiting pilots

It is essential that ALL pilots understand the Club Rules to fly our sites as set out by National Parks as conditions for consent to fly.


Restricted dates:
Crackneck Launch is closed to pilots on all Sundays in June due to whale watching. Wybung launch must not be used during January due to crowded conditions on the beach for landing.

Your cooperation and compliance with the rules will help ensure lasting access to our national parks sites for all pilots.
To understand just how important this is and why we take it so seriously, please read this letter from DECC…

DECC Caution Consent 20161110 212x300 DECC Letter

Tandem Flights

Tandem flights are now available at Crackneck Lookout.

Visiting pilots

If you are from out of town and would like to fly the Central Coast, you will need to become a member of the CCSS Club as a “visiting pilot”. Of course you must already have current membership with the HGFA and an Australian or visiting overseas pilot. Download our membership form here in PDF format or here in MS Excel format and tick the visiting pilot box. Contact info for Safety Officers here.
Visitor membership is free of charge and means we can ensure you get a good site briefing before you fly. We also need to keep a log of all pilots flying our sites so we can prove to the relevant authorities just how popular our sport is and hence keep our flying sites open!

New pilots

Interested in seeing if flying is for you? You are welcome to contact us and even attend our club meetings as a visitor where we’ll be very happy to talk about how to get into flying. A tandem flight for Micro lighting, Hang gliding or Paragliding is also a great way to find out if flying is for you.
