We hope you find the information useful. If you are a pilot that would like to fly in Hong Kong, you must register as a visiting pilot to be eligible to fly legally in Hong Kong. You also would need to have respective 3rd party insurance.
The HKPA 香港滑翔傘協會
The Hong Kong Paragliding Association (HKPA) is the paragliding National Sports Association in Hong Kong, appointed by the Hong Kong Sports Federation and Olympic Committee and fully recognised by our NAC as the sole body responsible for non-commercial paragliding administration and governance.
Anyone undertaking paragliding activities within the territory of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region should possess a HKPA pilot license or an overseas pilot license that the HKPA can recognize.
Commercial Tandem flights are not condoned by the HKPA. If you choose to fly with a tandem pilot who charges you money for the flight, be aware you do not have any insurance coverage from the HKPA and should discuss this fact with the pilot.
Visitors from foreign locations are encouraged to contact an HKPA official before undertaking any paragliding activity. Hong Kong is an affluent society with a strict legal system. Flying without insurance coverage could get very costly very quickly in the event of an incident or accident. It is recommended that visiting pilots should purchase individual third-party liability insurance or join the HKPA as a full member to be covered by the HKPA group third-party liability insurance policy.
Perhaps one of the most special traits of the HKPA is that we exist at all. We treasure our relationship with government bodies who allow us to fly in crowded Hong Kong. Flying in Hong Kong involves paying more attention to the rules and regulations more than in most other places in the world. Visiting pilots should contact the HKPA before take off. HKPA pilots need to scrupulously abide by the rules of the Association.
