Porterville Paragliding and Hang Gliding

Pampoenfontein Take-Off

Porterville paragliding, Porterville hang-gliding and Porterville free-flying are all different ways of looking at the same side of the flying coin.  Visitors often only get to see one side.  Porterville paragliding is designed to bring you both sides of all the flying coins.

FlyPorterville is an independent portal for free flying services making Porterville paragliding and hang-gliding more accessible and enjoyable to pilots and non flyers alike.

Paragliding Porterville - A landing Red Locust on the Porterville ridge.



The immature adult Red Locust is a brown colour which gets deeper and redder with age.

Swarms only fly during the day at temperatures above 26ºC but solitary locusts prefer to fly alone in the dark.

Swarms of Red Locusts rarely travel more than 20-30 kilometres in one day. Swarming females often lay eggs at night, their youngsters immediately capable of "hopping" hundreds of metres every day.

The last widespread plague occurred in Southern Africa from 1930-1944 when almost all of South Africa was invaded.
