      Soar above beautiful mountain views as you learn to control a hang glider while flying tandem with a USHPA Certified Tandem Instructor. You will Aero Tow to your predetermined height then release the airplane to experience aviation at its purest. You will experience breath taking views and enjoy the wind in your face as you fly above the beautiful foothills of western North Carolina. You will see Grandfather Mtn. Table Rock and the Catawba River as you fly. You will then roll in on the glider's wheels for a soft landing and celebrate your great adventure with your friends. We are proud to offer our students the experience of a lifetime and share their joy in our family friendly atmosphere. HD videos of your flight are available to purchase for you to share your adventure with your friends back home.
