Advance paragliders are built to the highest quality standard in the market and as such last many 100's of hours longer than other brands - this is directly reflected in re-sale and trade-in values.
Godfrey's Manilla Paragliding is the Australian importer for Advance paragliders since 1993. Dealer enquiries welcome.
Trade-ins with real valuations are always possible on Alpha and Epsilon and on selected LTF 1 models of other brands (such as Gin Bolero and Swing Arcus).
It is also possible to order ANY other glider/harness brand and model in at very competative prices and get real impartial expert advice - just ask ! Generally models from Gin, Swing, Gradient and Ozone are worth considering if something in the Advance range doesn't suit the budget or personal preference. The rest are simply not up to our minimum design and quality standards to recommend or advise on.
