PARAGLIDING + PARAMOTOR TRAINING

High Adventure prides itself on being able to offer students in-depth training and instruction under the supervision of highly skilled and accomplished pilots.

We have access to over 12 flying sites. This advantage means that there is rarely a wind direction that we cannot fly in. In addition to our extensive sites, we offer winch towing. This means in nil wind we can still train and ensure that you get the most from your learning experience here at High Adventure.

Our school is based within 200mtrs of cafes, shops and the water. We offer onsite accommodation in self-contained units that are fully equipped and air-conditioned. You don’t need to bring anything but your clothes. Our students are our priority, and your training here at the school should be nothing short of an all round enjoyable experience.

Day 1 of the Corryong open.

We had a nice scenic tour of the area with an 88km race to goal finishing at Khancoban airfield.
The start was light winds and a huge enter start cylinder meant there was several different options to position one’s self to start the race. The best position was over on mitta mitta so we had a easy run over the hot high ground and should be able to hit the first turn point in one glide. Well at least that was the plan.
I had a good start with the lead gaggle pushing hard along course but not getting as high as I expected. The climbs were broken and ratty but we could stay up ok.
We hit the first turn point and had to find lift on a little ridge groveling in light broken lift which was challenging. We got enough altitude to leave and head along course line and find a better climb which took us up to about 7,500’ and went on glide towards pine mountain hoping for better climbs. We got absolutely drilled on the glider going down at 5-6m/s but was rewarded with a screamer going up at 4/6m/s and catching the gaggle in front. I left that climb and pushed to chase down a few Glider that were ahead with a Buoyant glide tagging the next turn point I was almost on top of the gaggle of the guys I just caught and with the climb weakening and not overly high I decided to head out along course line to what I though may work as a little hill in the flats that was just within glide and Hopi g to drag the gaggle with me to help find it.
As I got closer I could feel the glider steering me toward the lift. It was drawing me in so I let it take me where it wanted to go and bang straight into a really nice climb and back on top of the gaggle this one went higher and we could make the jump to the next bigger hill where is expect to get he next one. So off we go coming in low again on the hill but perfect timing this one was even stronger taking it up to 8,500’ and with a 6-1 glide to goal from about 15km out I was off. Full speed chasing the guys in front still that were thermals the whole way to goal! Just when I didn’t need them they are everywhere! Anyway it was an easy final getting to goal with about 1,500’ up my sleeve it was fun to throw the glider around over the lake to celebrate. Finishing 9th for the day and a good leg stretcher it was a great start to the Comp with a big week of flying it looks set to see more big tasks in the days to come.

Task 3 of the Bright open.

It was a hot sweaty bowl of soup kind of day flying. We had a race to goal from Gundowring to Mt Beauty Airfield via a few turn points out in the valley. It was a hard slog getting away from launch early after take off which almost had me thinking I might be in the bomb out but persistence paid off and I managed to climb out a have a good start sitting around 2,200m and leading out in front to the first turn point. After that we climbed and headed for the second turn point moving very fast and in front again was nice tagged the second turn point and decided the main ridge was the best place to go. We arrived a little low on the foot hills but with a few good pilots close by I thought we are good to gob we will find something here. I could see some guys turning but not climbing very well behind me and dismissed that as there were better climbs around we just needed to find it and this was a good spot to get it and we should get the jump on the other guys.
Turns out the only thing we found was the ground and ended up landing as a result of pushing too hard for the conditions on the day, we were out of sync with the thermals as just after I landed a good thermal broke off and had to watch everyone above me climb out.
Moral of the story know when to slow down and stay in the air I got too hungry for lead out points and pushed way to hard.
It looks like a hotter better flying day today to I will be taking that onboard and hope to get to goal in a speedy smart manner 🙂

I like these updates, I specifically wait for them to find out how the comp conditions were. Pitty about the bomb. But keep up the nice updates and great work!

Haha, this is a greek guy...he uses some choice Greek words! The first time he speaks he says 'I hope I don't drop the phone now' (with a choice word at the start), then he says, 'The mobile fell', then responding to his mate on radio he says 'no, (choice word)' In case anyone was wondering 😉

I’d like to know if he used the ‘find my phone’ app to get it back and what condition it ended up in. Possible with the sandy looking ground below that it might have survived?

Why we do things differently to other training facilities

We train on lots of sites

Why? Because lets be honest, you’re never going to fly just one site out there on your own are you. More sites you fly the more experience. We offer coastal, inland, thermic and winch – over 8 sites. 

We Have Load's Of Experience

Dave and the team have taught hundreds and hundreds of students to fly in my years as a CFI. As a school we’ve focused on growing a strong community of pilots who are supportive, skilled and have an impeccable safety record. 

We Are Dynamic

 We’re leading the way in bringing new events to Australia for all level pilots. The continued development of both pilots and the sport is critical. Our ongoing free skills development weekends, the introduction of the Icarus X Series – we’re serious about your development. 

Did you know?

We stock multiple brands meaning you’ll never be pushed into buying something that isn’t 100% right for you.

Truth is – you’ll never be pushed into buying anything! Its just is not our style. 

We are Dealers for
