"Fly your dreams"


Blackhawk Paramotor

The Blackhawk Ranch is about 15 minutes away from a beautiful small town in Valley Springs, CA. It is located in a valley south of New Hogan Lake and north of Salt Springs Reservoir which makes it a beautiful place to fly.  

To get there from town: Head West on Hwy 26, turn left on Silver Rapids Rd, and right on Hogan Dam Rd. Keep straight until you get to a gravel road and the field will be at the end on the right.

There are a couple of rules to follow when flying the ranch. Please see below.

1. All pilots must sign Blackhawk's waiver and notify Mike / Heidi at 209-786-7899 before flying the ranch.

2. Always keep the gate closed. Drive on gravel road and camp in designated areas only. 

4. Abide by FAR 103 rules. Do not fly over the dam.

5. No Acro over the field. Right hand pattern. Don't fly over the house or shop. (See map)

For places to stay & eat:

You can camp out at the Blackhawk Ranch, but does not have power or running water.  The closest Motel is The 10th Green Inn.  The Acorn Campground is just a walking distance to New Hogan Lake. Rick Hallowes, a retired head trainer rents his trailer in Burson & can be reached at 209-765-2259.

For a small town, there are many great places to eat at a small price. Some favorites are Fusion Grill, Thai House, Mi Teirra, & Eddie's Grill.
