Learn to Fly

Learn one (or all) of these exciting disciplines and gracefully surf the skies with us! It’s probably easier than you think and definitely some of the cheapest forms of free flight and powered flight available.

For a full list of flight schools in Australia, please refer to The Hang Gliding Federation of Australia and click “Schools” on the menu. It is vital that instruction is carried out by a currently licensed and certified instructor. Do not trust your money (or your safety!) to anyone without checking their credentials with the HGFA first.
