Paragliding and Hang gliding in De Aar
A rare gem, centrally situated and full of possibility. There are wellplaced graded runways (clear of town) with a good road network stretching out over the Karoo from De Aar. A superb place to attempt record-breaking cross-country flights, with more trigger points than Kuruman. Flying in early summer is brilliant!
Fly de Aar offers a winching service. There is a hard-packed dirt runway.
The ground is 1260m (ASL) and expect big height gains. Oxygen is recommended.
The Karoo-bush is great for catching lines in strong wind. Land near a road. Cell phone reception is generally good.
