  1. How do I get in the air?
    You will be towed aloft by either the "Scootzilla" winch to an altitude of between 400 and 1000 feet depending upon the wind conditions or aero towed by the Dragonfly tow plane to 2000 feet or good lift.
  2. How do you steer the hang glider?
    Control of the glider will be by your instructor via weight shift. To go right or left he will move his body right or left inside the control bar. To go faster or slower, he will pull through the control bar or push back from the control bar. All you have to do is hold on to your instructor so you both move as one unit.If you're feeling adventurous and want to try your hand at controlling the glider, you can have a chance to take the controls and see what it feels like to pilot the hang glider.

"The only real issue I had was that this experience is weather specific. Once I booked the flight I was then in contact with the pilot and we agreed that the weekend in question was not acceptable so he was able to reschedule until we had a weekend that worked to maximize the experience."
