Dubbo Tow Safari


Open paddocks and big skies call you to venture out on your XC adventures

Poliglide are excited to be running our thermal and Cross Country clinics out at Dubbo again in 2022.

Over the last 7 years we have had many people achieving results far beyond their expectations. The transformation from nervous beginner inland pilot to confident adventurer is what drives us to run these types of courses.

Expect to Achieve

-Tow endorsement (if you don’t have one, we can arrange this)
– Personal best altitude gain
– First time thermalling or a continuation in thermalling skills
– First time gaggle flying with friends or new friends
– First Cross Country flights and first out landings.
– Adventure and meeting new people


Montie from Western Australia was all smiles after his first XC flight

The service uniquely offers a dedicated instructor to talk you through your tows and thermals. As your group proceeds, the instructor coaches
you on cross country flights explaining thermalling techniques and optimum landing selection.

For those looking to do their P3, P4 or P5 certifications, this could be a great opportunity to add the necessary thermal flying experience.

The key to the success of these trips is the union Poliglide has with Tow Tek winch producer, Philip Mansell. Phillip’s ability to tow you as well as track you, with his extensive knowledge of Dubbo as well as the use of the latest technology, makes this a fun and manageable adventure. Its the best bang for your buck pg xc experience by far.


Catching the best of the day

Using the Tow Tek state of the art winch systems, we will ease you into the sky for 3 awesome days of thermal hunting and adventure. The Tow Tek winch is a smooth and reliable system that ensures you get to height safely and comfortably.

In 2022  we have two Tow Safaris running back to back;

8th -10th March 2022
12th -14th March 2022

We will be once again working in conjunction with Phil Mansel, utilizing his beautiful property as our base however have the Trundle Wings out west site for a back up paddock camping area. Both have camping options and great value.

We have morning briefings and evening debriefings where we cover a range of topics to equip you with the tools you need to get the most out of your time with us and set you up for great future XC flights. By recording the ICG records of your flights via your phone we have the ability to review each flight and discuss theory surrounding how you can expand your skills.

If you’re interested in beginning or refining your thermal and XC skills and you are ready for some great, adventurous days of flying and camping under the stars at night, then our Dubbo xc adventures are for you!
