FLYING SITES

The paragliding scene in Thailand is just emerging onto the stage in Asia. The last few years has seen a steady increase in the number of flying sites, and a corresponding increase in the number of pilots coming to Thailand to explore their potential.

Thanks to the efforts of local pilots, flying organisations and groups, paragliding here is becoming increasingly accessible & hassle free. Thailand is also gaining serious credibility as an XC destination with bigger distances being clocked in both the north & south of the country in the last 12 months. In April 2015, a new Thai XC distance record was set by Mitsuharu Koga launching from Khao Sadao at 232km.

The reality is that Thailand is only just getting noticed as a flying destination. But there is clearly a lot more to come. Between 2013 and 2015, the national distance record has moved from less than 100km to 232km, and a handful of new sites have opened up with site records of well over 50km.

If you’re planning to come and fly in Thailand, then you’ll need to take out a membership with the Thai Glder Club to fly certain sites. You can check out the requirements here.
