Lake Chelan Flyers

Lake Chelan Flyers (LCF) is a Chapter club of the United States Hang Gliding and Paragliding Association (USHPA) serving pilots in the Chelan area and the greater northwest.  LCF provides ongoing management of the Chelan Butte flying site, and serves as liaison between the flying community and the multiple land owning agencies and other parties involved.

LCF regularly hosts the annual Beach’n and Bike & Fly events, and supports other flying events and competitions through close cooperation with other USHPA Chapter clubs including Cloudbase Country Club (CBCC), Northwest Paragliding Club (NWPC) and the North Cascades Soaring Club (NCSC).


The goal of LCF is to help ensure the long-term availability of the Chelan Butte flying site as a fun, safe place for all pilots and families to enjoy.
