History of the HKPA 香港滑翔傘協會歷史

The HKPA was established by the following three founders, in 1990/91:

  • Gus Scott - Chairman (membership #001) ... Police Inspector
  • Tony Bird - Treasurer  (membership #002)... Cathay Pacific Captain, AHGA member, also a qualified hang glider pilot
  • Rupert Utley - Secretary  (membership#003)... Police Inspector, BHPA member
Later, Paul Collins, a HSBC Accountant, took over as Treasurer and Tony Bird assumed the role of Vice Chairman. Paul worked on the Association insurance policy and our membership accounts. In 1992 Chris Lodge joined as Safety and Site Officer. 

At the beginning of the 90's, Tony and Rupert worked on the administration of the HKPA and HK Societies Registration with the Police, exemption from societies ordinance, BHPA recognition and pilot rating schemes, started negotiations with CAD,  Agriculture and Fisheries Department, and the Country Parks Authorities, Association Insurance, etc. Subsequently, the same team drafted the first version of the HKPA constitution. Tony Bird and Rupert Utley used the BHPA constitution, Operations Manual, Pilot Rating System and applied it to the HKPA. Both also designed the HKPA logo; it is very similar to what you see today. The logo was originally designed with the idea of placing a paraglider over the top of the then HK Tourist Association logo (used with permission from the HKTA). The first run of HKPA tee-shirts with "Fly Hong Kong" were manufactured in Sham Shui Po in 1992-93. The HKPA's first local member was Man Kam Fai, then a Fireman with HKFS in 1991.

The founders and several members have participated in a few world championships, e.g. 1992 World Paragliding Cup. In 1992/93 there was the Hong Kong Paragliding Championship held at Shek O and that was made as selection process for the HKG/HKPA Team. The 1993 Paragliding World Championships was held in Chamonix and comprised Gus Scott, Ruprt Utley and Christian Ronning, with members Michael Spurling and Neil Moody as team managers. The 1995 Paragliding World Championship team comprised of Scott Ligertwood, Christian Ronning and Rupert Utley.  

In the early days the Founders labeled all the registered and unregistered paragliding sites on survey maps and designated the code based on the first pilot to fly on that site. Tony Bird was the first to fly off the Peak, Tai Mo Shan, Long Ke Wan, Ma On Shan and several other Sai Kung sites (mostly hills). Tony was also the first to venture over to D'Aguillar, as well as to the Junk Bay site. Rupert Utley was the first to fly at Shek O (both East and West ), Sunset Peak on South Lantau, and Pat Sing Leng. Later HKPA pilots Steve Wordsworth and Jack McDonald took up the HKPA Committee positions, as with pilot members Michael Spurling, Ah Fai, Paul Zimmerman, and Paul Collins, and all are credited for the huge amount of hard work in making the HKPA more mainstream, getting more local membership, refining the Constitution, site maps, as well negotiations with government authorities, including the introduction of radios.

With the successful formation of the Hong Kong Paragliding Team, the representative were then able to compete at the Asia Games in 2018.

Hong Kong Paragliding Association was then officially incorporated as a Company Limited by Guarantee in 2021, renamed as the Hong Hong Kong Paragliding Association Limited, to further promote paragliding activities.  

香港滑翔傘協會 (HKPA) 於 1990/91 年由以下三位創始人成立:

Gus Scott - 主席 (會員編號 #001) ... 警務督察

Tony Bird - 財務主任 (會員編號 #002) ... 國泰航空機長,AHGA 成員,也是一名合格的滑翔翼飛行員

Rupert Utley - 秘書 (會員編號 #003) ... 警務督察,BHPA 成員

後來,匯豐會計師 Paul Collins 接任財務主任,Tony Bird 則擔任副主席。 Paul Collins 負責協會保險政策和會員賬戶。 1992 年,Chris Lodge 加入,擔任安全和場地主任。

在90 年代初,Tony Bird和Rupert Utley 負責處理HKPA 和香港社團註冊處向警務處的註冊、豁免社團條例、BHPA 認可和飛行員評級計劃、開始與民航處、漁農署和郊野公園管理局、協會 保險等進行談判。 隨後,同一個團隊起草了 HKPA 憲章的第一個版本。 Tony Bird 和 Rupert Utley 借鑒了 BHPA 的章程、操作手冊、飛行員評級系統,並將其應用於 HKPA。 他們兩人還設計了 HKPA 的徽章,與你今天看到的非常相似。 該徽章最初的設計理念是將滑翔傘放在當時香港旅遊協會徽章的頂部 (經香港旅遊協會許可使用)。 第一批印有 "Fly Hong Kong" 字樣的 HKPA T 卹於 1992-93 年在深水埗製造。 HKPA 的第一位本地會員是文鑑輝,當時是 1991 年香港消防處的消防員。

創始人和幾位成員參加了幾屆世界冠軍賽,例如 1992 年世界滑翔傘盃賽。 1992/93 年,香港在石澳舉行了香港滑翔傘錦標賽,作為香港/HKPA 隊的選拔賽。 1993 年滑翔傘世界錦標賽在法國夏慕尼舉行,由 Gus Scott、Rupert Utley 和 Christian Ronning 組成,會員 Michael Spurling 和 Neil Moody 擔任團隊經理。 1995 年滑翔傘世界錦標賽團隊由 Scott Ligertwood 、Christian Ronning 和 Rupert Utley 組成。

在早期,創始人在地形測量圖上標註所有已註冊和未註冊的滑翔傘場地,並根據第一個在該場地飛行的飛行員指定代碼。 Tony Bird 是第一個飛越山頂、大帽山、浪茄灣、馬鞍山和幾個西貢場地 (主要是山丘) 的人。 Tony Bird 也是第一個冒險前往鶴咀和將軍澳大利亞場地的人。 Rupert Utley 是第一個在石澳 (東部和西部)、南大嶼山的大東山和八仙嶺飛行的人。 後來,HKPA 飛行員Steve Wordsworth 和Jack McDonald 接任了HKPA 委員會的職位,與飛行員成員Michael Spurling 、阿輝、保羅司馬文和Paul Collins 一起,都被認為使HKPA 更主流化、吸引更多本地會員、完善憲法 、場地地圖以及與政府部門的談判(包括引入無線電) 付出了巨大的努力。

隨著香港滑翔傘隊的成功組建,其代表隊員得以在 2018 年的亞運會上參賽。

2021 年,香港滑翔傘協會正式註冊為擔保有限公司,更名為香港滑翔傘協會有限公司,以進一步推廣滑翔傘運動。
