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 and is our recommended time of year to begin solo training (March-November).

Thanks to our multiple high mountain sites facing west and east, pilots can still thermal up to 5000ft and fly more then 50km cross country during the shortest days of the year in June and July!

Summer days can be quite warm and humid so we simply often fly early in the morning and in the late afternoons to avoid the heat and strong thermal activity during your practical training. We have a large airconditioned classroom so we often retreat there during the middle of the day to complete the required theory components. Once you progress from the training hill and start flying from the mountains, the 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.
