2017/18 Season Paragliding Ladder

The National Paragliding Ladder has been updated for the 2017/18 Season. You can find it here.

It includes the inter-season devaluation, the removal of visiting pilots who's memberships have lapsed and, most importantly, the results of the Linzhou Open, in China, that was nominated as an Overseas FAI Comp by a few pilots.

New Paragliding Competition Rules available for review

A new version (19) of the Paragliding Competition Rules has been created and is available for review. If there are no significant objections then these rules will become official on the 10th of August 2017.

Staffing changes on the PCC

Cameron Kennedy's profile photo, Image may contain: 1 person, outdoor and nature

Regretfully, 2 year incumbent PCC member, Cameron Kennedy has tendered his resignation to me from the PCC. Cameron needs the time to concentrate on becoming a commercial helicopter pilot.

We accept Cameron's resignation and thank him wholeheartedly for all the work that he has put into the PCC over the past two years.


After only limited coercion, Wayne Rohrs has agreed to join the PCC and the NZHGPA Executive have endorsed this. 

We genuinely welcome what Wayne can bring to us, not least his exceptional IT skills which are a much sought after commodity.

The other two members of the PCC: Johnny Hopper and Tim Brown, remain on the committee.

Thanks, Cameron, and welcome, Wayne.


Cordially,
Johnny Hopper
NZHGPA PCC
