SkyRides & Lessons

Ultralight Hang Glider SkyRides:

Enjoy the fun and thrill of your first flight while choosing the Intensity to suit your Mood – from Mild to Wild!!  You actually get two experiences for the price of one aboard the motorized Hang Glider – feeling the powerful engine thrusting you into the sky, and then silent gliding after it is shut off at full altitude.  All SkyRides include certified flying instruction and ground training  so your flying experience will count towards any Instructional Package listed below!  Once you are hooked, you will want to re-live the experience over and over again to make your dream of being a pilot come true!

Be sure to sign up for lessons immediately after landing your SkyRide for an extra $300 discount on a Hang Glider or Ultralight Eagle Package (valid that day only)!

Pure Towed Hang Glider SkyRide:

For a pure un-powered Hang Glider silent soaring experience, you will be towed aloft behind our motorized Ultralight Hang Glider while you are learning to become a pilot as part of a Weekender or Eagle course package listed below (not the Breeze).  These flights have a 200 lb weight restriction and are only available by special arrangement 1 day per month with 7 days advance reservation required.  For a one-time flying experience, we recommend the Ultralight Hang Glider SkyRides listed above which also includes an un-powered silent gliding portion plus longer flight times when the motor is running.  But if you have already experienced our Ultralight Hang Glider SkyRide and wish to continue with more flying lessons, then this will be part of your next step in the program.  Laying in a harness above your instructor, you will be towed to 3500 feet.  After release from tow, you will experience the freedom of silent soaring and gliding, have the opportunity to take over hands-on control, and even experience some thrilling Aerobatics (optional).  When you phone to purchase, or to book a date, please be sure to state that you specifically want in these words the “Pure Towed Hang Glider SkyRide” – as most people confuse the names of the different SkyRides we offer since all our aircraft use a Hang Glider wing.  Note the price below is the full retail value of the flight if purchased separately from one of the discounted lesson packages below at a much better value  (Note: Flight times may vary based on thermal conditions)
