Hat Creek Rim

  A new Club and USHPA chapter have been formed to liaison with The USDA and steward the flying site at Hat Creek Rim. The new clubs website is HERE
Hat Creek Rim is a famous Glass Off site. It is known for its consistent summertime evening glass offs when pilots can often find abundant smooth buoyant air. It is common to see the HG's take off earlier than the PG's while they wait for lighter launch winds.
It is a good idea to hookup with locals at the site. Ham Radio simplex frequency 146.415 Mhz is used and monitored by locals on flying days and most summer weekends you will find pilots here.
 A Yahoo group "hatcreekrimpilots" is now up and running. It has information pics,video links,a log book and is a great place to reach other pilots who fly Hat Creek Rim, log your flight,video,story,pictures and read and view what others have done and are doing.
