Our Hang Gliding Tandem Flights are slowly towed up to either 1500′ or 3000′ by a specially designed ultralight airplane – with your certified instructor next to you the entire time.
This means you will not be running off of our cliff-side ramp! This ramp is for rating pilots only.
INTRODUCTORY HANG GLIDING EXPERIENCE
Have you ever dreamed of flying?
Our Introductory Hang Gliding Experience is the first step to becoming a pilot! Fly solo on our bunny hills before taking a tandem to 1,500 or 3,000 feet!
Learn the basics of launching and landing a hang glider! You’ll be shown how to control a hang glider before getting up to five flights off our gorgeous bunny hills.
Afterwards, you’ll be able to put your skills to use while flying tandem to 1,500 or 3,000 feet!
In order to have a successful lesson students must be able to confidently run about 30 yards.

Introductory Experience with 1,500ft Tandem
Introductory Experience with 3,000ft Tandem
Discover paragliding with a certified instructor by your side.
Paragliding Mountain Launch Tandems take flight from our grassy slope launch on Lookout Mountain. Your instructor will guide you through the entire experience.
HOW IT WORKS
You and your instructor will be together in a chair-like harness. You will be with your instructor the entire time.
After a few running steps, you can expect to be floating blissfully in the air away from Lookout Mountain. Once you are in the air, you will be able to sit back in their harness as if sitting in a chair. Enjoy the amazing views along Lookout Mountain while your instructor seated right behind you controlling the paragliding wing above.
When heading down to land, you can expect to slowly descend toward our large, grassy landing field. Your instructor will be guiding you the whole way on the landing process. As a passenger, you simply need to lift your legs up when instructed to slowly slide in while remaining seated in your harness. Easy peasy!
