When is the best time to learn?

Paragliders can be flown anytime as long the wind is not too strong or if its raining.

 

South East Queensland Winters are usually quite dry and mild which allow us to genuinely teach all year round while most schools in the southern states and coastal areas of Australia simply shut down. Meanwhile, here in Canungra, thanks to our multiple high mountain sites facing west and east, local pilots can still thermal up to 5000ft and fly more then 50km cross country during the shortest days of the year!

Summer days can sometimes be quite warm so we simply often fly just after dawn and in the late afternoons to avoid the heat and strong thermal activity during your initial training. Once you progress from the training hill and start flying from the mountains the summer heat is not an issue as it is often nice and cool up high. Summer sea-breezes also offer good dynamic soaring with pilots often riding smooth lift up to 3000ft with spectacular views of the Gold Coast and Brisbane.
