Ximango 200S VH-XNO

 

Welcome to the Gliding Brisbane-Redcliffe Web site.

 We provide air experience flights in a Ximango Motor Glider over scenic Redcliffe, the Glass House Mountains and Moreton Island, taking off from the closest gliding site to Brisbane, the Redcliffe Aerodrome.

Our usual flight lasts over 60 minutes, but we do have shorter ones (see below). Over Caboolture Airfield, we will endeavour to soar (engine off) with the eagles that live there.

The pilot is Peter Stephenson, one of the instructors in the Caboolture Gliding Club who will encourage the passenger to use the controls. By doing so, he will hope that his life-long addiction to gliding will rub off on the passenger and make him/her want to learn to glide at his gliding club.

The Ximango was imported from South Africa where it was registered ZS-GUP, and the previous owner has this video on You tube.

Please note that passengers have to weigh less than 110kg and be agile.

We have credit card facilities and gift vouchers for all occasions. The flights cost $299.00 for 60mins+, $235.00 for 45 mins and $175.00 for 30 mins. These prices include GST and a 30 day membership ($40) of the Gliding Federation, the body that governs our sport, which means you can have more flights without having to pay it.
