Located on the Bukit peninsula, approximately 2 kilometres east of the Timbis site, Gunung Payung is often flyable when the winds are too easterly at Timbis.
Gunung Payung launch is 60 metres amsl and is flyable in east-south-east through south winds. Best flown early to mid dry season (June - August), the site is not recommended for novice pilots however as there are no beach landing options beneath launch at high tide. Even at low tide, the narrow beach is very restrictive.
Timbis Flying Club members are available on-site to offer local knowledge and lend a helping hand. Refreshments and snacks are also available.
In good east-south-east through south-east winds it is possible to launch from Gunung Payung and fly the ridge a few kilometres to the east and soar the Nikko Hotel complex. Landing options near the Nikko however are very limited!
