Forbes Flatland International Competition

Welcome to my latest blog update report for the Forbes Flatland Hang Gliding competition taking place in Forbes New South Wales. I arrived on Thursday 4th January after a long trip from Coffs Harbour on the east coast of Australia.

The town of Forbes is a four and half hour drive from Sydney, the organiser Vicki Cain kindly invited me over for a few days. To shoot some extra footage for a promo of the best pilots attending the Hang Gliding International event. This film footage is priceless for our upcoming Documentary. I met many friendly well known pilots from many Nations from around the world.

The Hang Glider pilots have traveled many many miles from Japan,United States, Canada,Norway, Sweden, Italy, Brazil, Germany, Austria, and from States around Australia many of the Top 100 Pilots from around world are there for the Forbes Flatland Hang Gliding Gold.

The event is proudly sponsored by Moyes Delta Gliders and the Forbes City Council along with many aviation sponsors. The visiting aircraft there to aerotow the Hang Gliders are the Airborne Microlights and Moyes Dragonfly's.
