Have you ever dreamed of flying the way the birds fly? Gliding gently through the air with a bird’s eye view of everything below and out to the horizon, or soaring upwards on rising thermal currents, banking and turning to follow the lifting air. Maybe you’ve even been aware that there are some people who do fly this way but thought that you could never do it. Well, you CAN do it.

The modern sport of hang gliding offers the easiest, safest access to personal, bird-like flight that has ever been available. Hang glider pilots utilize lightweight wings made of aerospace aluminum alloys covered with space-age polymer fabric, shifting their weight to control speed and direction.

Today’s advanced teaching methods, coupled with modern flying equipment, make the learning process easy, safe, and fun. You can get involved at any level and to whatever degree you choose, from a single, introductory lesson to a full course of instruction leading to solo flight and your own pilot rating.

To start, you can fly from a mountain in a tandem wing with an instructor at your side, or skim over soft sand dunes under an instructor’s supervision, just a few feet off the ground. If you choose to go farther, you’ll learn the finer points of controlling your wing under the guidance of your instructor, while you also learn to understand the winds and how they affect your flight.

You’ll become part of a community of pilots, and find that people who share a love of flying are some of the most interesting people you’ll ever meet - people who live life with a sense of adventure and with a passion that few experience.
