Blue Sky Hang Gliding Adventure is a 4 hour session where participants will learn the basics of hang gliding flight, be familiarized with all in-flight equipment and necessary safety gear. The short ground school will be followed by learning how to hold and jog with the glider properly as we prepare for your first flights. The Wright Brothers only went 119′ in distance, just a few feet off the ground on their first attempt. You will have the possibility of flying over 500 feet of distance if you control the glider well.
Our new pilots will fly close to the ground for obvious safety reasons, while they learn how to fly at the proper speed, and how to fix and control direction. Wheels make for smoother landings, but pilots might try to land like a bird and walk to a stop. Fun and safety are the main ideas. In our small group sessions, pilots compete to see who can fly to the end of the course and smoothest and maybe land on their feet. Usually participants will have 7-10 flight attempts. Weather/wind conditions play a major role of course.
