Hang Gliding Lessons

[slideshow id=5 w=300 h=200]

Adventure At Altitude is the ONLY Hang Gliding School in Central Canada!  We feature an INNOVATIVE Low-level Tow Training Program using MODERN training gliders to get you flying solo QUICKLY!  During an intensive training program you can finish the full course Eagle package in just 5 days, or you can spread your lessons out during an entire season or two as your personal schedule allows.

There’s no more running down the hill and getting tired pushing the glider back up again….  Instead you gain experience flying HIGH at cloudbase with your tandem instructor with full hands-on control during your 1st lesson.  Then on your 2nd flying lesson you will actually fly solo skimming safely low to the ground while being towed by an ATV in full control of your instructor should you veer off course!  Watch our lesson videos by clicking the “Photos” tab to see what you can expect your 2nd flying lesson!  Then the next video shows progress at the 5th lesson of a “Weekender Package” with the student being able to fly for longer duration in full control for the full length of the runway before being towed much higher and to begin learning to land gently on your feet instead of the wheels by the end of the course!

Lessons are available anytime in the mornings or evenings based on our flying schedule.  You can take one lesson of 2 hours duration, or up to three lessons in one day.  Just make a reservation at least 48 hrs or more in advance.  Check out our Package pricing.  Hang Gliding Lessons can be held rain or shine with a ground school lecture, and flying may be rescheduled.

Adventure At Altitude is the only school in Canada to utilize a powered ultralight trike during hang glider training for students having difficulty mastering control or for learning advanced thermalling techniques.  This motorized Hang Glider allows more time in the air, provides the ability to cruise around to find thermals, and enables climbing high above the turbulence to find smooth air for personalized training.
