Byron Airwaves Hang Gliding School can offer the potential pilot an introduction to our specialised and unique sport, a safe and beautiful tandem flight with your experienced instructor over Byron Bay’s scenic coastal National Park.
We have been flying over the ridges and soaring above the cliffs at the famous Cape Byron Lighthouse for over 35 years now and the setting for your first hang-gliding experience could not be any better.
Your first tandem flight can truly give you that feeling of freedom like only a quiet hang-glider can and no prior experience is needed.
Further lessons and instructions are available to achieve your pilots certificate.
All flying is professionally conducted with certified instructors who live locally and are very experienced members of the Hang Gliding Federation of Australia.
We are accredited preferred licence holders to operate in the National Park where control and management of all activities are coordinated with the Cape Byron Headland Reserve Trust.
Chief Flight Instructor and company director Brian Rushton has been teaching hang gliding in Byron Bay since 1979 onwards and has been happily married for over 25 years. He has featured with all his children hang gliding together on the major TV networks both national and international.
Byron Airwaves has continued to offer quality and caring instruction and we have the latest gliders and equipment from world leaders in glider design Moyes and Airborne in Australia.
