|| High Perspectives is dominantly a hang gliding training, tandem and towing site, but do tow paragliders when the conditions are right. They also train beginning paragliders who have their own equipment.
The Tow Field is located at 1150 Hwy 7 two kilometers west of Brock Road. It is the first farm west of sideline 22 or east of 24 When you arrive, please park in the designated area beside the office/clubhouse and make yourself known to a staff member. We will get you prepared for your flight.
Depending on the wind direction, launch will be from one of the corners marked A thru to D.
*** Please be very careful when walking across any part of the Tow Field. The line used to tow the gliders is razor sharp and could be on the ground along one of the dotted lines or anywhere in the air. You really want to KEEP WELL CLEAR of the tow line!
