Article 48 of the Air Navigation (Hong Kong) Order 1995 (Cap. 448C of the Laws of Hong Kong) stipulates that a person shall not recklessly or negligently cause or permit an aircraft (which includes paragliders) to endanger any person or property. Paraglider pilots shall observe this regulation and operate the paraglider in a safe manner at all times. Any person who contravenes with this regulation is subject to prosecution.

HK Paragliding Sites

As there are many flying sites in Hong Kong, it is possible to fly in nearly any wind direction throughout the year. The majority of the flying areas are soaring sites with reasonable options for landing and top landing.  However, some sites are more challenging than others which will require additional consideration and higher experience to fly. 


There are strict limits placed on our flying here in Hong Kong, Please do not fly outside the approved areas.

HK Airspace

Hong Kong has sensitive airspace for paragliding that we do not wish to lose. It has taken years to gain sites and they can be lost in a moment should pilots not be careful. Hong Kong is home to the very busy Chek Lap Kok International Airport. There are height limits at all of the sites that MUST be adhered to.


IMPORTANT: FLYING outside of designated paragliding zones is strictly prohibited - any incident that occurs outside the designated areas will not be condoned by the HKPA and you will not be covered by any insurance.


HKPA strongly recommends that all pilots study and be familiar with the relevant Hong Kong Air Laws to understand the regulations and environment before conducting any paragliding activities.
