About Poliglide

We're in the Flying Business

A bit about us

Poliglide Paragliding and Paramotoring School is situated 20 minutes south of Byron Bay. Our shop front and air-conditioned training room is in down town Ballina, just minutes from the Byron/Ballina domestic terminal, as well as accommodation.

Training and flying sites are all within 30 min drive of the shop and range from beach sites to gentle grassy launches, which are perfect for training. We have our students perform their early soaring flights in smooth seabreeze as well as thermic conditions to teach the full range of skills, which is why we are able to offer such a broad range of services.
