Submit your entries by 30 September 2021 Competition entries are open to all categories of pilots from 16 years and up. “This is something we are really excited about,” Festival organiser Guy McKanna said. “We haven’t done anything like this before, and it’s going to be a thrill to share our experiences to a wider audience. Flying for us is a solo pursuit, but this film festival gives us an opportunity to expand our audience and invite them to join us to be part of the bigger picture. This gives us a chance to include family and friends to narrate and direct the story,” McKanna said. “We are grateful to our sponsors for getting on board for the Free Flight Film Festival. Joining SAFA are Cloudbase Paragliding, Sky Out Paragliding, and paraglidingshop.com.au .” McKanna said. We are looking forward to sharing this with all our members and can’t wait to deliver this spectacular experience to the broader public.
