Free Intro Hang Gliding Sessions


Moyes have proudly collaborated with NSWHPA, Tony Armstrong from Hangglide Oz, Tony Barton from Air-Sports  and an incredible number of volunteers to bring this  initiative to life.  Together we showcased hang gliding through a series of free introductory sessions within a 250 km radius around Sydney. As Molly Moyes says “Getting back to how it all started”!

Over 4 weekends we toured the countryside, broke out the Malibu’s and introduced 78 people to the amazing sport of hang gliding.

I cannot thank all the volunteers enough for all their support of these great events and the CFI’s Tony Armstrong and Tony Barton for their excellent training skills.

We really showcased our sport in a fun and safe environment with the expert guidance of so many wonderful and experienced pilots who shared their passion for the sport.

Some fun statistics:
  • Across all 4 locations we had a total of 78 people fly
  • Almost 40% were Women
  • 35 Volunteers supported the CFI’s and shared their passion for flying
  • 990,000 Total Volunteer Step count : )
Thank you: Matthew Te Hira, Louie Cain, Greg Cain, Michael Free, Akihiro Takeno, Peter Burkitt, Rick Martin, Paul Stuart, Jason Lannstrom, Bruce Wynne, Brett Freebody, Brad Porter, Phil Robinson, Mark Wallace, Trent Brown, Geoff Robertson, Gerry Mason, Yasuhiro Noma, Rafael Masters, Alan Taylor, Hossain Tefali, Trent Brown, John Harriott, Rob Van Der Klooster, Rob Larkin, John Dingle, Matthew Tynan, Glen Selmes, Jamie Orschot, Harry Daniels, Cameron Evans, Dustan Hansen, Rod Moore, Carl Syddall, Mark Newland.
