“Thanks again for a fantastic 1-day introduction. I couldn’t wipe the smile off my face for days. The 1-day intro was above and beyond in terms of learning and training. To go from indoor simulators to solo flights in one day was amazing! I would recommend Poliglide to anyone wanting to get a taste for the sport. It was a great group with friendly and expert instruction. I’m in the process of getting some time off work to complete the full course with Poliglide. Thanks again.”

“I have just undertaken paragliding at 55 yrs old , so never to late for para gliding !!!

I researched and ”’attended”’ training at several other schools along the east coast of Australia. Many other learner and experienced pilots also industry suppliers and the sports leaders recommended ”Andrew at POLIGLIDE” para gliding based in the Byron Bay area.
Andrew and Fiona guided all 5 of us through the 9 day course.
1 student came from Cairns to the distant north and another from as far as Melbourne to the south. All were recommended POLIGLIDE from previous students and experienced pilots as the best teacher and pilot available for training and after completing the course ”’I AGREE” !!!

Many great skilled pilots out there teaching paragliding however being a great pilot and a great teacher I discovered is a combination rarely found.”
