Taste of Freedom Glider Flight
“Taste of Freedom” is approximately 40 minutes in duration. Take off from Tyagarah and arrive at Cape Byron flying low around the lighthouse, keeping an eye out for dolphins or whales at Watego Beach. From there you will go to Broken Head where “the rainforest meets the sea” and you will see our pristine, uninhabited beaches.
Turning inland you will climb to 4500ft for an overall view up and down the coast before the engine is turned off and the propellor feathered for soaring. You will have magnificent views of the Great Dividing Range, Mount Warning and the Gold Coast as you glide back to the airstrip on silent wings.
Unfortunately, we are unable to carry any passengers weighing over 110kg. This is a legal weight restriction.
Byron Gliding Club also reserves the right to refuse flight for minors. Generally speaking, minors should be tall enough so that they can see outside the cockpit. We must also be confident that they weill not play with the controls or become distressed during flight.
