The perfect experience for the hang glider to be.
This course is a half day introduction to foot launched flight, learning training protocol, glider set up, preflight inspection, ground handling and landing skills.
Your hands-on learning will begin on flat ground. You will learn to launch a glider using a light tension towing winch. A tow operator will control the winch with a line connected to you and your glider.
The first several tows will be short and keep you a few feet above ground. You will be developing launch skills, learning towing procedures, getting a feel for the glider, and working on good landing practices.
As your skills improve the tows will be longer and take you a little higher off the ground.
By the end of the class you could be launching into a short flight and landing on your feet depending on weather conditions and aptitude..
Daily - 7:00 AM through 3:00 PM
**Evening courses are available during the week May through July, or weather permitting.
