This forum is dedicated to discussions on how to grow the sport of hang gliding. We will take a methodical approach to collect data and come up with implementable ideas on how to increase our numbers. This includes effective marketing, lead generation, site access issues, improving regulations, lack of instructors, lack of sites, etc

Credit for the impetus going to Ian Jarman, HGFAustralia Administrator at the time thanks to this quote:

"International Standardisation should be a CIVL / FAI goal.
Reinventing something that already exists to an acceptable standard is a waste of our already scant time and manpower resources."
