The Dalby Big Air

The Dalby Big Air is a friendly competition with a view to introducing as many hang glider pilots as possible to the excellent year round flying conditions the area offers.

Dalby is situated on the Darling Downs, 2.5 hours drive from Brisbane. It is the central hub of a vast cotton and sorghum growing district which provides ideal soaring conditions with an excellent road network that facilitates easy pick ups.

Competition headquarters is at the Dalby Aerodrome, where the Dalby Hang Gliding Club has a secure hanger as it’s home base.
