Site Management
Ron Jones is the local host.  He will need to know your USHPA rating,  and you must sign a waiver. Contact Ron at 559-313-0162 for a full run down on this beautiful site. There is a gate code that Ron will advise.
 
All Pilots must be members of the USHPA with rating of at least a H3 or P3. 

H2 and P2 pilots are acceptable if under supervision of an instructor or observer. These are required because it is a semi-arid mountain site, and like many others in California, can become quite strong, windy, and turbulent during midday.  Pilots inexperienced in mountain flying should launch early, and land before it becomes too strong.
