Just minutes from Byron Bay and less than 45 minutes from the Gold Coast.

After climbing high above the countryside, the engine is turned off and you fly like a bird enjoying the freedom of a limitless sky.

These amazing self-launching motor gliders embody all the advantages of powered aircraft combined with the inherent safety of sailplanes, they regularly soar the rugged ridges of Mount Warning and the cliffs above the historic Byron Bay Lighthouse, as well as one of the longest ridges in Australia, the Coorabel, site of a famous endurance flight back in the 1930s.

Your highly-trained and experienced pilot will give you a pre-flight briefing before you climb aboard and get comfortably strapped into your seat ready for take off. You will sit beside your pilot and once airborne you’ll have an unimpeded panoramic views of the Byron Coastline, plus the Northern Rivers Hinterland & Mountains.

Don’t forget your camera. You won’t want to miss this opportunity for some spectacular photos.

The Byron Gliding Club has been established since 1992. It’s main aim to promote the sport of gliding.
