  • The perfect experience for the hang glider to be.

    This course is a half day introduction to foot launched flight, learning training protocol, glider set up, preflight inspection, ground handling and landing skills.

    Your hands-on learning will begin on flat ground. You will learn to launch a glider using a light tension towing winch. A tow operator will control the winch with a line connected to you and your glider.

    The first several tows will be short and keep you a few feet above ground. You will be developing launch skills, learning towing procedures, getting a feel for the glider, and working on good landing practices.

    As your skills improve the tows will be longer and take you a little higher off the ground.

    By the end of the class you will be flying by yourself and landing on your own.
