Move to Kurnell
Moyes Delta Gliders – a stones throw from the headland…
We have just signed off for our shiny new factory and office!
Kurnell is considered to be ‘the birthplace of modern Australia’, as it is the place where Captain James Cook landed on 29 April 1770 – Cook reported back to England that the land was lightly wooded and suitable for agriculture - and building awesome hang gliders ;)
New Fast Bar fittings
All of our Fast bars now have an internal safety wire that is secured by a tang which locates inside the fitting.
If you require a new Fast bar and have the original fittings you will need to change the fittings to the new milled versions.

National Museum of Australia
We’re thrilled to announce that the National Museum of Australia have taken delivery of one of Bill’s early gliders that was originally built by John Dickenson and owned by Ray Leighton.
Together with wooden leading edges, stainless steel A-frame and wooden harness seat this original wing will hang together with a brand new RX and Matrix Race harness in the Main Hall exhibition space.
They will also add interactive media on the history of hang gliding in Australia!
