People fly Crestline seven days a week, weather permitting, so it is usually easy to get site information and a ride up the hill. This website's Pilot's Forum is a good means of getting current information, if you can plan in advance or have web access while here. There are a few flight schools which operate nearly every day and they are good sources of information for visiting pilots and for obtaining day memberships and sign-offs if needed. We have an online weather station and webcam installed near the Crestline launch and also have a Windtalker installed at the Crestline 'Top Town' intersection which provide wind information to pilots considering a trip to Crestline; winds between WSW and ESE and under 25 MPH indicate that it is launchable. Visiting pilots who are unfamiliar with the area are strongly advised to contact locals before going up to fly.

Introductory Tandem Lesson or Full Lesson Package:
A tandem lesson flight is a great way to find out what HG & PG are all about, and if they're right for you, plus tandems are a lot of fun. Most USHPA certified HG and PG Instructors are also certified as Tandem Instructors. There are a number of Tandem Instructors who do not also offer further training, as a means to increase the public's access to our sport without the burden of running a flight school.
