Flight Zone Hang Gliding School
Flight Zone is run by Chief Flying Instructor Neil Mersham who has been flying hang gliders locally in Byron Bay for over 30 years. He grew up in Byron Bay and knows the local wind and weather conditions comprehensively. This, he says is a huge advantage and such an important safety factor in running a successful operation that relies on the sound judgement of good winds and weather for gliding through the air.
He is a well-respected founding member of the local Club and is endorsed as local Safety Officer as well as also being a very successful competition pilot for over 15 years winning several major competitions.
