  • Dip your toes into the sport of hang gliding over the beautiful Tennessee Valley! 

    You will fly your first flights in a controlled environment, surfing the slopes of our small hills, only about 5 to 10 feet off the ground after learning the fundamentals of flying from your friendly instructor. You will get five opportunities to fly from our small hill with a USGHA certified instructor guiding you step by step.

    After your morning training session, you will fly tandem with an instructor by your side above beautiful Lookout Valley where you will build on your experience in learning to fly the glider.

    A wonderful introduction to the purest form of flight!

    1. How safe is hang gliding?

      Hang gliding is as safe as the individual makes it.  Like any form of sport aviation hang gliding requires careful training and execution. Our experience provider makes your safety a priority, they have the best equipment, a comprehensive training program, highly experienced staff and backup systems to ensure you are safe and have a wonderful experience.

    2. How do you hold yourself up?
      Pilots are suspended from their hang glider by a harness and hang strap system.  You don't have to hold yourself up.
    3. How fast do you fly?

      The trim speed of a hang glider is about 18-20 MPH.  Trim speed is defined as the speed a glider is flying with the pilot is flying hands off.  Most gliders stall at around 15 MPH, are towed at about 33-35 MPH and reach top speeds of 45-65 MPH (depending on the glider model).

    4. What is the difference between a hang glider and a para glider?
      Unlike the rigid airframe that shapes the wing of a hang glider, a paragliding wing is maintained only by air pressure.  This means that the hang glider wing is more stable and can be flown at higher speeds and in a larger range of wind conditions.  Paraglider pilots fly in a supine or seated position unlike hang glider pilots who fly in a prone (laying down) position.
