Lake Keepit Soaring Club
Flying in a sailplane is an unforgettable experience. You can book a tandem flight at the Lake Keepit Soaring Club, near Gunnedah in northern NSW. On the edge of Lake Keepit State Park, this area is spectacular for an aerial adventure – below are winding rivers, rich farmlands, forested ridges and mountains with big thermals. In the two-seater glider you’ll be accompanied by a qualified pilot.
There are winch and aerotow flights. You can launch by aerotowing and go as high as you want. The normal launch height will give you a flight of 20 to 30 minutes, depending on conditions on the day. If conditions are good, you can extend your flight beyond 30 minutes for only AUD1.50 per minute.
