Glider Flights Byron Bay
Soar like an eagle over the spectacular coastline and extinct volcanic mountains of the NSW Northern Rivers.
Just minutes from Byron Bay and less than 45 minutes from the Gold Coast.
We usually fly four days a week, weather permitting – Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday.
Sit back and relax as you take off in these amazing powered gliders.
Be enthralled with the spectacular views of the Byron Bay coastline. 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 self-launching motor gliders embody all the advantages of powered aircraft combined with the inherent safety of sailplanes, and 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 Coorabell – site of a record-breaking 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 safety harness ready for take off. You will sit beside your pilot and once airborne you’ll have an unimpeded panoramic view of our paradise.
We usually fly 4 days, weather permitting. Flights are available throughout the day but booking is essential.
