Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I was doing motorised paragliding for the first time with Andrew. I'm having afraid of heights so I was nervous beforehand. Pilot (Andrew) called me before and made me feel safe. He was really calm and expert doing this. Recommend this experience totally! It was just mind blowing and worth every penny!

It was my first tandem flight. It was really windy on the coast so we tried to fly in Corabell. Ironically, because it´s a place in the inland, there was to less wind. So we flow around seven minutes, but the wind was so slow, that we didn't´t flew high. I enjoyed this flight nevertheless! But Irvin thought this flight didn´t count as a real flight. So he offered me a second flight on Lennox Head. There we had a fantastic flight. We flow around twenty minutes. On the left hand side we enjoyed the beautiful sunset and on the right hand side, there was the wonderful ocean, where we also could watch some whales!! What a unbelievable flight! I would definitely recommend the flight with Irvin. He was very kind and you can see that he´s an experienced paraglide-flyer.
Thank you so much Irvin, for the nice experience!! :-)

Thanks for your great review Laura. We are so pleased to hear that you had such a wonderful experience. Even though your inland flight was only short, it is still a very special way to see the Byron hinterland! We would love to get you flying in the future if you are back in our area again :)

A gift tandem introductory flight. Poliglide were patient in finding the right weather and my availability window (wind direction is key). The flight takeoff and landing was surprisingly easy, safe, flying was comfortable and overall just really enjoyable. Watching whales breaching, waves and Close up to Lennox cliffs and low fly bys for camera wielding family. Irvin was friendly and informative, I'd recommend!

I just had a Towing endorsement course, and got some equipment from Andrew and his team! I am extremely happy with my entire experience, from booking to the end of the course. Extremely professional, reliable, safe, friendly, fun, and with extensive knowledge! Probably the most knowledgeable paragliding towing instructor in Australia! I would definitely recommend this course or any other course with Andrew and Poliglide to anyone :)!!

The reason for a terrible rating is because of our experience, or the lack of. Andrew may be a good instructor but I couldn't comment on that as we never had a chance to experience.
Booked the two day try out classes (not cheap to begin with) for my partner's birthday and although we got booked in for a Friday, which we both ended up taking off of work, we got completely forgotten about. Andrew showed up an hour late, gave a bit of a spiel for about two hours and told us we could fly with him the following day. He would contact us with time and place....Well, contact was never made again until the following morning by the time which we would've never made it down there.
We did get a refund as I have requested it although to be honest it should have been offered to begin with.
The lack of communication and the unprofessional customer service was a complete turn off.
Andrew is a nice guy but being nice does not get my money worth.

We really appreciate your feedback. It provides us with opportunity to improve. We acknowledge that our communication for that session failed, and that your partner's birthday fell during a major weather event. Hope you get flying soon.

I was apprehensive before take off but so exhilarating, the most amazing experience. Felt safe and Ervin was sensational and shared so much local knowledge. I just want to do it again.

Was awesome to see Lennox from a different perspective - from the sky! Felt super safe and comfortable in the harness. Thanks for an awesome flight! I loved it so much, I gave my brother a flight as a gift when he visited and he was just as stoked!
