Details

Description
info from: http://www.flystanwell.com/index.php/the-site/29-flying-the-site
The site works best when the wind is between South and East. You probably want between 10 and 20knts wind speed for the hang gliders and 5 -15knts for paragliders. Check the Bureau Of Meterology web site for the observations from Bellambi and it'll give you a good idea of what the conditions will be like.

Do not land in the sea - ever! If you do then you're pretty much f***ed!

The main landing area is down on the Stanwell Park beach. It's not particularly difficult but it's surprising how many visiting pilots stuff it up. If the wind is strong and from the South or the East/NE then watch for rotor coming off the spurs to the North and South of the 'chute'. The most significant danger is the close proximity of the public using the beach. The landing area has to be marked with cones/flags but people commonly stray into it, so watch out and make your approach with this in mind. Top landing is common for the paragliders and possible for hang gliders when conditions are suitable. You must be suitably endorsed for this.
