Introduction to hang gliding course, Class starts at 9:30 until June 1st then class starts at 8:30 am , Class is 5 hours
This is where you get your first taste of what hang gliding is all about.
Classes start at 9:30 am Sharp! Late arrival after class starts is not allowed as it stops the class and the students lose training time.
When you first arrive we have you sign waivers, watch the training videos and have a brief question and answer period with your instructor. Then you get suited up with your training gear. Next it’s off to the simulator where you get your first feel of what it is like to speed up, turn, and land a hang glider in the safety of a simulator. Most of all you are learning how to react and respond to things your instructor is telling you during the course of your lesson.
Then, this is where the fun starts, the glider! (Actually it is the hardest part of the course but everyone gets it sooner or later). Learning to hold, balance and run with the glider is very important and must be learned before proceeding on to the hill.
Learning to run downhill with a glider and taking off and flying, just like your childhood dreams. If you have been listening to your instructor, and are relaxed you will fly. As you start to run down the hill the glider will start to lift you by pulling on your harness and as you continue to run with a light touch the glider will pull you into the air. Not everyone will get this right away and it takes time and practice but don’t give up, keep trying. Having patients is very important. No first day student will get to the top of the training hill, this might take 3 or 4 days of training before you earn your way to the top of the training hill for nice long flights across the ground. You will, if you can keep yourself from grabbing, jumping or holding on, earn yourself some really exciting flights from the lower part of the hill. Remember hang gliding starts just 5 feet off the ground. It is something you will remember the rest of your life. This is hang gliding, the most addicting thing you will ever do.
If this is something you really want to do then check out the Eagle Package, you will save a lot of money if you sign up for this all inclusive package.
Eagle Program: $2799.00.
