We start off with a short Ground School that will take about 10 minutes. Once that done, you will be outfitted with a hang gliding helmet and off we go. I will help you in the harness which is hooked into the hang gliding - the harness is built specifically for hang gliding. We'll make sure you are nice and comfortable. Then once settled in by your side, the hang gliding is hooked up to the tow plane and you are whisked aloft on our popular Bucket Flight to 1,500. We take off and land on wheels so there's no need to run. Once you get to that altitude, the instructor will release the tow line and you'll both be free flying around the area, taking in the sites Then at that point I will switch places with you and turn over the controls of flying the hang glider over to you. You'll be shown, with a little instruction, how easy it is to fly. Then you'll both land back where you started.
