Flying Porterville for the first time…

For the pilot who is new to Porterville, we have a special briefing each morning at the Lodge. This intensive discussion explains the daily weather with the expected flying conditions and the variation in the winds as the day progresses. We also study the region’s topography and its influence on the wind and thermals…

We will often set a “task” for the day and brief pilots on how to achieve it, giving tips and advice; and arranging appropriate retrieve vehicles to follow the route.


All accommodation includes a light, continental-style breakfast (juice, cereal, toast, tea/coffee ) – special orders on request
