Experience an 85 minute flight in a glider, high above the picturesque landscape of the Caboolture region and magnificent Moreton Island! View unspoilt beaches and the stunning scenery at heights of 3500ft and experience the beauty of silent flight as you take in the spectacular views!

Come gliding and enjoy the spectacular 85 minute flight around the northern Moreton Bay region!

On the day of your gliding experience, you’ll be met by your experienced glider pilot and you’ll be introduced to the glider. Climb aboard one of our latest model Super Dimona motor gliders. These gliders are the most reliable and comfortable motor gliders available and feature excellent visibility through a one piece canopy with no door or windscreen pillars to block your view.

As you depart Caboolture Airfield, you’ll experience spectacular scenery as you climb to 3,500ft passing the Pumicestone Passage, Bribie Island over Moreton Bay to the Wild Dolphin Resort and Tangalooma Wrecks on the west coast of Moreton Island. We then head for the east coast cruising along the beach to Cape Moreton. From June to November, whales are often sited on the annual migration. Then it is over the spectacular Spitfire Channel for a return to Caboolture taking in views of the Glasshouse Mountains and up the coast to Caloundra.

During the flight you'll be sitting next to your pilot in the front seat of the glider and will have plenty of opportunities to take photographs and talk on the flight radio. You can even have a go at the controls under the watchful instruction of your experience glider pilot and fly the glider yourself. You’ll discover just how easy it is to fly! Your pilot is a qualified motor glider instructor and will be more than happy to explain how this state of the art glider flies and the techniques used by glider pilots to fly long distances using just the natural thermal energy in the atmosphere.

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Would love to go again. Thanks to the organisers who allowed for several re-schedules due to bad weather. Finally the conditions aligned with the schedule and the flight was tremendous. The aircraft provided an unbeatable view, and was surprising comfortable given the size of the two person cabin. Lewis, the pilot, was very considerate and informative. The opportunity to find thermals and gain height without the engine topped off the journey. I have never experienced anything like it. Thanks again to the team, hope I can go again. 22 April 2013

Rated 4 out of 5 by Great pilot - very informative. Wouldn't recommend this if you get motion sickness though. I was looking through the camera a lot (filming), and got a bit 'woosy'. Phil, the pilot, would just level out until I felt better, so no need for the sick bag! 18 July 2012

Rated 5 out of 5 by I had an absolute ball. My pilot was informative, entertaining and obviously loves his job! I have raved about the experience all day today at work. There are some very jealous people now. Lewis, my pilot, was fabulous. 7 November 2011
