Thanks to a collaborative effort between the BCHPA, WCSC, ISS, and Mosaic Forest management, “Deer Hunter’s” launch on Mt Irwin is now accessible to all WCSC and ISS members with current HPAC membership, as well visiting pilots. As the valley lies within the Comox Class E TCA, HAGAR certification and an Airband radio are required to fly this site.
The Beaufort valley, located near Port Alberni, BC, offers high-quality XC paragliding for experienced pilots capable of self-guided free-flying adventures. The continuous, south-west facing alpine ridgeline promotes exceptional soaring conditions while the pastoral valley below offers a variety of safe landing options with accessible retrieves.
The WCSC and BCHPA would like to thank Brian B. for his tireless efforts to negotiate and secure this asset for the flying community.
Please refer to our site guide for more information on the WCSC Website.
