Cable Hang Gliding >>

Ever wanted to experience the thrill of hang-gliding, but your 'respect' of heights has prevented you? If Airborne Action could remove your worry of controlling the glider...and associated risks, would you have a go?

Cable Hang Gliding has an advantage over traditional hang-gliding, as people feel (and of course are) much safer being attached to a cable which acts as a safety line. So it's perfect for those who have always wanted to hang-glide but have never been game. It's also great therapy for those with a fear of heights.

Cable Hang Gliding is a safe, fun activity for all, (age or disability pose little or no barriers). The only restriction that we do have is a maximum weight limit of 110kg.

 

Cable Sky Diving >>

If you are a thrill seeker, and cable hang gliding sounds a bit tame for your tastes then let us suggest Cable Sky Diving. It provides all the ingredients of fear, excitement and a pure adrenalin rush. Sky Diving is an aspiration many have but few pursue.

Cable Sky Diving operates with all the same safety procedures and equipment of the Cable Hang Gliding. The trapeze of the glider is folded away and you are suspended below the apparatus. The harness is fitted with leg straps to assist you in keeping your legs straight.

This time you launch yourself from the summit platform and experience the sensation of flying with the ability to steer yourself similar to a skydiver in high speed through the air. Once at the bottom you will be winched back to the launching platform for your second flight, but this time you will be launched backwards. Definitely not for the faint hearted.

For the Cable Sky Diving there is a minimum height requirement of 155cm, and a maximum weight limit of 110kg.

 

The System >>

Our system consists of a main steel cable that is suspended between two steel support poles that are approximately 300 metres apart. The summit or launching platform is situated at the high end of the cable system and has a vertical height difference of 50 metres from the pole at the lower end.

You are launched from the summit platform, and gravity takes over. It takes approximately 26 seconds to travel the 300 metres and can generate speeds of around 50km/hr dependant on wind conditions. You descend into the valley and once at the bottom you are winched back up to experience the thrill a second time. The whole experience takes around 5mins per person so therefore large groups can still be catered for.

 

Location >>

Airborne Action is located on Quarry Rd, about 100 metres up from the Victor Harbor Road turnoff, just across the river from Old Noarlunga. We are situated in the foothills and have a spectacular view of our surrounding areas. We are only 5 minutes drive from the McLaren Vale wine region... just off the Victor Harbor Road, 1km from Main South Rd intersection, so why not make a day of it! See map
