Visiting Pilots Welcome - To fly club sites you are required to first join the club for the day/fortnight/year Membership The same as anywhere else, you have to pay if you want to play. For compliance of HGFA requirements, legal liability, insurance, and your share of the costs of providing private land, maintenance and operational infrastructure to allow you the opportunity to fly.
Information is made available to members to help you fly club sites safely to maximize fun. It is essential before flying you have safety site briefings on local knowledge of micro weather influences and updates to navigate local issues to mitigate risk on where is ok and safe to launch fly and land with conditions of use. Collective goal is to preserve the flying sites and privileges for all pilots, and when your day is done of fun in the sun, your flying buddies see you fit and well to get home safe.
It's a small world. Network of people know each other. And know of others who know some one, some where who knows you. Anyone who flies club sites without current membership for the day before you fly, to save the small cost of your sport, is liable to lose everything: all legal action and damages claims by anyone & inviting HGFA flying ban and a big fat CASA fine. "A man that flies from his fear may find that he has only taken a short cut to meet it." Club members notice someone new / visiting. We welcome you to join us, even for one day and invite you to make new friends.

How to get Here!
Canungra is a small country town nestled in a quiet valley behind the Gold Coast and surrounded by tree-covered ridges separating wide flat valleys. The location provides the environment for varied and challenging flying as well as plenty of alternative activities should the weather fail to co-operate. The town has most of the essential facilities necessary for survival of today's parapeople. There is a pub, post-office, supermarket, a few cafe's, a chemist and one ATM. The launches are 15-20 minutes drive from the town centre.
Canungra is situated about 40 minutes drive from the Gold Coast just over an hour from Brisbane in the SE corner of Queensland. There are scheduled international domestic flights into Brisbane and Coolangatta airports. If driving from the south on the coast road, stay on the Pacific Highway until you reach Nerang and then follow the signs to Beaudesert/Canungra. If coming on one of the inland routes, stay on Cunningham's Highway until you cross the Great Dividing Range and then follow the signs for Boonah, Beaudesert and finally Canungra.
