Ride the glory…

October 14th, 2013

Video of Bob & Tracey’s recent Morning glory trip. Ted also makes a cameo appearance..

We think Tracey is the first female trike pilot to fly the morning glory, while Ted is certainly the first T- Lite pilot to catch the cloud! Best viewed full screen, HD, turn the volume up!!

Sunday’s cross country hang gliding flight from the Rex Lookout Port Douglas

August 29th, 2013

Sunday saw a good turn out of pilots launching from the Rex. Bob, Adam, Brett, Paul, Ron, Joe, Will and Matt. Everyone flew North landing at various locations along the way, some as far as Miallo.
A big thank you to Vanessa for being brave enough to drive a few smelly, sweaty hang glider pilots back to launch! She even bought beer and chips!
Here is the video…..

Cooktown weekend

July 6th, 2013

Hi all,
Last meeting resolved to head to Cooktown again!!
We are going on the weekend of the 19th, 20th and 21st July. This is the Cairns show weekend, so Friday is a public holiday.
Troy is coming up from Mackay, and being a public holiday means we can head up Thursday night, and get an extra days flying!!
Here’s some inspiration…

Please let Bob know if you’d like to come, so we organise vehicles, etc.
