This is a great opportunity for novice and intermediate pilots to improve their hang gliding skills.  It is also an opportunity to enhance cross-country and competition performance under guidance from some of Australia's most skilled and experienced pilots.  The Canungra Hang Gliding Classic competition follows directly after the training camp, so for those who enter, there will be two de-briefings throughout the competition week to monitor progress of pilots who attended the training camp.

Pilots are required to supply all hang gliding equipment.  Pilots are encouraged to use GoPros (or any other video cameras) during the training camp so all pilots can watch in the evenings as well as helping instructors to give feedback.
