Tandem Hang Gliding Flights
We recommend that first-timers choose the Ultralight Hang Glider SkyRide for their first flying experience. Not only is it the most popular choice of our customers, it is also the best value flight for your money offering the longest and most comfortable (seated) flying experience we can provide, that also includes silent motor-off soaring if requested exactly like this Hang Glider Flight.
But if you are a purist interested in a true un-powered silent flight experience that is towed to altitude, we recommend that you sign up for a Hang Gliding Weekender or Eagle Lesson Package that includes this dual tandem flight. We only occasionally offer towed tandem flights on the un-powered Hang Glider with a certified instructor as part of a lesson program, but not as a single SkyRide experience.
These flights on the un-powered Hang Glider are only booked one day per month (Easter thru Halloween) based on limited demand. The cost is more due to requiring 2 pilots and 2 aircraft, the climb to altitude is slower so the maximum towed altitude is only 3500 feet, and each flight duration will be different based on the conditions and so they may be shorter than the SkyRides aboard the motorized Ultralight Hang Glider. The Hang Gliding tandems are more weather dependent, so are performed only in the early morning and late evenings, and may result in more cancellations before having a perfect suitable day to fly. A minimum 7 day advance reservation and pre-payment is required, and there is a strict weight limit of 200 lbs, otherwise you will have the exact same flight experience on board our motorized Ultralight Hang Glider that has a 300 lb weight limit.
When you phone to purchase, or to book a date, please be sure to state that you specifically want to sign up for a minimum 2-day Weekender Hang Gliding Lesson Package, and want to experience 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.
