The NSW State Titles foot-launch hang gliding XC competition takes in Manilla from 17-23 February 2019.
“The comp attracts the best of the best from Australia and around the world, so is the ideal site for up-and-coming pilots to learn from those at the top of their game. It is also the ideal comp for newer pilots wishing to fly big air and fly big flights.”
HQ is the Royal Hotel, Manilla.
Altitude with Attitude run a series of fly-ins for female pilots in Australia.
The Dubbo fly-in is a towing event for up to seven participants. Organisers say,
“We will be in the tow paddock from mid morning till late afternoon. Breakfast will be briefing time, dinner will be debrief. We will start and finish in Dubbo but where we fly will be up to the weather-gods!”
The entry fee is to be confirmed, but will include meals. You will be sleeping under the stars!
Check the Altitude with Attitude website for more information.
Wings out West 2019 is Australia’s only ground-tow paragliding competition which takes place from 13-17 March 2019 in the central NSW flatlands.
A small, select gathering of just 35 pilots will be able to compete, and at the time of writing there is only one place left!
Dalby is on the Darling Downs, 2.5 hours drive from Brisbane. Organisers say, “It is the central hub of a vast cotton and sorghum growing district which provides ideal soaring conditions with an excellent road network that facilitates easy pick-ups”.
Competition headquarters is at the Dalby Aerodrome, where the Dalby Hang Gliding Club has a secure hanger as its home base.
Pilots need an intermediate/advanced rating to take part in the competition. There are places for 50 pilots, and the entry fee includes all towing fees.
