Enjoy the thrill of a tandem flight in a hang glider over the amazing Colorado Springs landscape.
The exhilaration of Hang Gliding is unsurpassed!
Learn basic flight controls, safety procedures, soaring techniques, and landing approach in your introductory tandem hang gliding lesson. After instruction on the ground and practicing a few runs on "bunny" hills, you'll enjoy foot-launching from a hill while harnessed to an instructor for the duration of the flight. Once you have launched there's nothing else for you to do but sit back, relax and enjoy the ride high above the Colorado landscape.
Some operators offer a choice of both hill and tow-launching techniques. A tow-launched tandem flight is generally easier, because no running is required on take-off; however, hill-launched flights deliver the classic hang gliding thrill.
If you are ready to experience the thrill, call 1-850-308-7968 and book your Introductory Tandem Hang Gliding Lesson in Colorado Springs today!
