Hang Gliding and Paragliding are the way to go for those who are ready to change their lives. For many people, this is not just a sport, but a way of life. Once you become a pilot you will never again go anywhere without considering the potential flying.

Try our introductory two days course, introductory trial tandem flight or complete a 10 day pilot certificate course.

You will progress and learn at your own individual pace, therefore the time it takes to complete the legal requirements for the HGFA supervised pilot certificate  can vary, depending on fitness, age, natural ability and of course the weather.

On completing your Supervised Pilot Certificate course you are qualified to fly solo but this is really just the beginning of your exciting new world. At Canungra Sky Sports we pride ourselves in looking after our students long after course completion. If we are not teaching, you will likely find us on the hill flying recreationally or in competition. Hang gliding and paragliding are sports that offer so much, you never really stop learning. Our students become part of the family and we are always there to offer support, help and advice.

The number one reason most people fly? Because it is amazing fun. This is what you can expect when you take a course with us. We find our students thrive with positive reinforcement. With no compromise on safety, your learning experience will be positive, exciting, great fun and always professional.
