David Cookman–Sunshine Coast Hang Gliding Reviews (7)

Amazing gift for my daughter....

a year ago
My 18 year old daughter asked me to buy her a pair of shoes for xmas, so instead I bought her a powered tandem flight with David. She loved it. "Dad I just touched clouds!" was the first thing she said after touching down - "Noosa looks so different from up there" - she's lived in Noosa all her life. David was really organised on the morning of the flight and everything went really smoothly. I would rate this as a high recommend and great value for money. Thanks David & Karen :)

I've been up with Dave a couple of times now and can't recommend him highly enough. He's professional, knowledgeable and you just can see that everything's being done the way it should. He's obviously in love with flying and wants to make sure that the people he takes up have a great time whilst making sure that safety is the most important thing on every flight. Definately give him a call and have a chat. You'll be high as a kite in no time.

Best air experience EVER!!

I love flying and skydiving. This experience topped them all! My Dad and I had the most amazing, fun & comfortable morning flying around Noosa's beaches. If you're in Noosa anytime, get to Noosa Airfield and do this experience!

I had the pleasure of flying with David in his microlight around the shore lines of Noosa. I would have to say that it has been one of the major highlights of my life. The view was spectacular, the freedom you feel when you're up in the air is mind blowing. David is very experienced, funny and friendly, I felt absolutely safe and comfortable with him. A must for everyone to experience. Loved it.

About David Cookman–Sunshine Coast Hang Gliding

Instructor David Cookman offers Weight Shift Microlight Trike and Hang Gliding flight instruction, Trial Instruction Flights and equipment sales and spares. We operate in the Sunshine Coast region and are based in the Noosa Area.

Your Chief Flying Instructor and Training Facility owner is David Cookman. David has over 35 years of Weightshift flying experience. His Instructor Certification is issued by the Hang Gliding Federation of Australia (HGFA). He is qualified to instruct both Hang Gliding and Weight Shift Microlighting. David is also a Senior Safety Officer and Vice President of the Sunshine Coast Hang Gliding Club Inc.

With Fraser Island and the Cooloola National Park as a back drop this area is one of the most stunning areas in which to undertake a Trial Instructional Flight or lessons.

Situated just west of Noosa, on the Sunshine Coast we are 1 and a half hours drive north of Brisbane and 20 minutes drive north of the Sunshine Coast Airport. The Sunshine Coast is a premier tourist destination and the area caters for all individual accommodation needs.

No matter which discipline you choose Hang Gliding and Weightshift Microlight flying are an affordable way to get into the air. They provide an experience that is fun and rewarding.

Available to those 16 years and older, there is no upper age limit as long as you meet the medical requirement for a car license.

With an amazing degree of portability once the skills of flight are mastered the cost of flying is affordable.

Hang Gliders fold up into a long carry bag that can be transported on the roof racks of a car. A Weightshift Microlight base fits on a trailer and like a Hang Glider the wing folds up to be carried on a car roof rack.

So give us a call and start to experience the dream of a flight.
