Dalby Big Air 2019The Dalby Big Air is a friendly hang gliding competition, which aims to introduce hang glider pilots to the excellent year-round flying conditions this area of Queensland offers.

Competition headquarters is at the Dalby Aerodrome, where the Dalby Hang Gliding Club has a secure hanger as its home base.
