Learning to fly

This are a number of schools where one can learn to fly, whether it may be Hang gliding, Paragliding, or Weight Shift Microlighting (trikes) you are interested in.

A good way to start is to contact a club or a school and talk to someone in the sport. Then, perhaps try a tandem flight, weekend course or a full training course.

A list of Chief Flying Instructors based in Victoria with school names where available is included below. See the SAFA website for information about instructors in other states in Australia.

For a map of schools, see the site guide.

HG = Hang Gliding, PG = Paragliding, ML = Microlight
