New Hang Gliders

It is always exciting buying a new hang glider and there are a lot of good choices out there. If you are new to the sport then the floater style of hang glider is definitely the way to go. They are lightweight, quick to set-up and pack-up; they fly slow making them easy to takeoff, fly and land. They are forgiving in nature and make great use of the lightest of lift. The floater style of hang glider is all about having fun with your flying. Here in South Australia we do a lot of coastal ridge soaring and the floaters are ideally suited to the many sites we fly on and around the Fleurieu Peninsular. 

Floaters are available in a variety of sizes and options and come from a variety of manufactures. Adelaide Airsports are the South Australian dealer for Airborne Windsports, Moyes Delta Gliders, North Wing and Wills Wing hang gliders. 

If you have been flying for a while and looking to step up to an intermediate, high performance or competition type hang glider, we have the expertise to help you decide what will best suit your needs. There are a lot of good hang gliders available and if you are a little confused about what will be best for your future flying feel free to give Larry a call and have a chat about your next glider.

 

Used Hang Gliders

Of course it is always nice to buy new, you get to pick exactly what you want, size, colour, options etc.. But sometimes the budget just won’t stretch far enough. There are plenty of used hang gliders about; but it is buyer beware! Over the years many makes and models have come and gone, some are suitable for the new pilot but many are not. My best advice is that unless you are an experienced pilot and know what you are looking for only buy a used hang glider from a reputable dealer or flying school. Sure, take advice from local pilots but more importantly take advice from your instructor; he/she should know what would suit you the best. Once again if you are new to the sport then the floater style hang glider is what you want, they have been available for a couple of decades now so used ones come and go all the time.

Adelaide Airsports generally has a number of demo and/or used hang gliders available some of which are listed below. If you need advice about buying a used hang glider or are looking for something in particular then feel free to give us a call and we will do our best to help. We are in constant contact with the hang glider manufacturers and the local flying community.
