Learn To Fly Courses 

Learn how to fly in Queensland with Australia’s most experienced female instructor and her skilled team. We provide lessons & courses on the Gold Coast,  from intro two day course courses right through to full pilot licence courses. We operate in Canungra, Beechmont and Mount Tamborine area of the Gold Coast hinterland in South East Queensland of Australia.

Hang Gliding is the way to go for those who would like to fly like a bird. Unlike any other aircraft, you will be flying in a prone position just like super man, or super woman, or a bird for that matter. Whether you want to race across the skies like a falcon or cruise high like an eagle, hang gliding is the way. For many people, hang gliding is not just a sport, but a way of life. If you would like to learn how to fly, dont wait any longer, call today.  

Our team at Canungra Sky Sports aims to provide our students with the safest and most enjoyable hang gliding experience possible.

Chef flight instructor Lisa Bradley and her highly qualified team of instructors would love to pass on their skills and passion for hang gliding.

You can get your hang gliding restricted license in 9 days, depending on your skills and fitness. We operate from the Canungra hinterland on the Gold Coast.

Try our Deluxe Introductory 2 Day Course + Instructional Tandem, or the Beginner course which runs over two days, or complete a full 9 day course and receive your restricted hang gliding license.

The course starts with you joining the Hang gliding Federation of Australia. You will learn about the glider and associated equipment, set up, pre flight check. Your first steps with the glider will be on flat ground. You will learn to control the glider as it lifts off your shoulders and begins to fly. As your confidence and ability grows you will move higher up a training hill allowing you to gain extra altitude and air time. Once you can show your instructor that you have the control and confidence, it will be time for high flights from 1800 feet up Mt Tamborine or Beechmont. First in smooth air, then ultimatley in light thermals and or ridge lift allowing you to soar like an eagle.

Your instructor will progress you at a safe speed through the course. 

All students will have radios  for all flights and be under supervision by an experanced HGFA instructor.
