What to Expect



Byron Airwaves Hang Gliding can offer the potential pilot an introduction to our specialised and unique sport. You're guaranteed a safe, beautiful tandem flight with our 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! The flight is with your instructor and is an introductory tandem flight which lasts for 30mins. It will give you that feeling of pure freedom and no prior experience is needed. 


We sign you up as a HGFA member which gives you trainee membership and allows you to enjoy a tandem flight with third party liability insurance for a further 4 months if you wish to take more flights or lessons. Before launching with your instructor you will be given a safety briefing and explanation about hang gliding, it's as easy as that!


Whilst soaring in your hang glider keep an eye out for the popular Byron Bay dolphins, turtles or white breasted sea eagles. You may even see a Humpback whale or two!
