The Gliding Federation of Australia welcomes you to the exhilarating, spectacular yet serene flying experience of gliding. If you are new to gliding and want to find out more, click the Try Gliding link above to learn more.

Gliders take to the air like birds with wings outstretched, soaring on rising air currents, immersed in three dimensional space and flying silently with an eagle’s view of the world.

Gliding is for everyone - men and women of all ages fly gliders. In Australia you can fly solo from the age of 15 and some pilots continue gliding into their eighties. It is never too late to learn to glide and many pilots take up the sport in their 40s, 50s or even 70s.
