The usual weather conditions in the Canungra area allow us to fly from Mt. Tamborine and Beechmont pretty much all year round, and international competitions are organised by the club every spring (check the HG and PG pages for more details).
The CHGC sites are suitable for pilots of all experience levels; from beginners for soaring the ridge lift a few hundred feet above the hill to advanced pilots who will climb to 10,000 feet in thermals and fly cross country as far as Dalby, Warwick, or Kyogle.
If you want to experience the joy of flight and soar with the eagles, join us in Canungra! If you are not a pilot yet, our local instructors are happy to offer both introductory tandem flights as well as full license courses.
As most of our sites are quite sensitive (because of the population pressure starting to affect Canungra), we kindly ask visiting pilots to study the Site Guide and the Pilot Code of Conduct documents carefully before flying in our area; the club section details the regulations for visiting pilots.
We hope that this website will provide you with useful information about flying in the Canungra area; if you have any comments or suggestions please feel free to contact us.
