Did you know it is legal to Hang Glide in Yose Valley?




How cool is that?




Really cool videos once my amateur one is done.

I don't care if you look at the video. But if you open this thread... please vote.
Very interested in the results.

When we were there last year, I saw a few cars with these long "things" on top, covered in canvas. At first I thought they were canoes or kayaks of some sort (or maybe very large tents), but no, they were hang gliders. I didn't know it was legal until then.

But aren't they only allowed to fly on Saturday or the weekend? When I worked in the valley (many years ago) they flew every day.

Those "long things" on top of cars are all over in the Owens Valley now. With the 100* temps, come the hang gliders seeking incredible lift...

Just got back from Tuolumne and saw what I thought was a strange boat or part of one being pulled on a trailer. Perhaps this is what I saw. I would have thought this would be illegal... glad to see it's not. Very cool.

If it had what appeared to be a vertical fin on the top, it would have been a sailplane trailer. (Saw several of them on US395 last weekend.)
