South Lantau is separated into two flying zones (east and west) this page is a about the West flying site.

South Lantau is one of two Southerly sites in Hong Kong. It is mostly a Soaring site, with good thermals on a sunny day. The site allows limited XC flights with great views and a easy beach landing.
The site is in controlled airspace close to the GFS Base at HK International Airport. There are special requirements.
The LZ is next to the small water way. If you land to the Right of the waterway you can easily walk to the pickup area behind at the Beach Club. You can gets drink there too.
Winds to look for on the HKO website are Cheung Chau with as much S as possible and force 2-3. Never fly in force 5 and above wind condition.
Getting to South Lantau – Take the MTR to Tung Chung. You can either get a Blue Taxi ( Exit C ) toward Cheung Sha, or get any NLB bus ( Exit A ) to Mui Wo, Ngong Ping or Tai O. In either case when you can see the top of the hill get out at the Pak Kung Au bus stop.
