Lake George is Canberra’s ‘coastal’ site. We soar the 20km+ ridge on the western side of the lake in an easterly breeze, cruising above the Federal Highway. We usually launch at the southern end of the ridge, which we refer to as ‘the lake’, ‘geary’s gap’, or the ‘south launch’. This allows easy launching and top landing, and a huge lake-sized landing paddock. But airspace is at only 3,500ft here, so to go XC we fly to the northern end of the ridge, or start at the Collector launch. The lake is also an ideal place for powered paraglider and weight-shift microlight flying.
