Canungra Paragliding and Hang Gliding School - Canungra Sky Sports

Hang Gliding Beginner Course

2 x Day Introductory Hang Gliding Course

What to Expect: This course runs over 2 days. On the first morning you learn to set up the glider, do your safety checks, launch and handle the hang glider on gentle slopes close to the ground, where you will learn basic skills used to control the hang glider.

Depending on the conditions, your fitness and ability, you will be able to move higher up the training hill, giving you extra height and air time.

Over the 2 day course relevant theory will be explained so that you have a full understanding of what you are doing and what you want to achieve.

Following the 2 day course you will know if hang gliding is the sport for you. Most now continue on to complete their restricted certificate course.  Some leave with a basic understanding of what it is like to control a hang glider. The sport does require, commitment, patience, time and money. It is not for everyone. But for those who have the desire and will to achieve mans long lost dream, to fly like a bird, the rewards, freedom and thrills that hang gliding offer are priceless.

Canungra Sky Sports will provide the student with all of the required hang gliding equipment during these classes, including gliders, harnesses, radios, and helmets. Students should bring sturdy footwear. This course delivers an excellent begining and introduction to the freedom thrill and pure joy of free flight.
