This is an experience gift voucher. The recipient will book the experience after they redeem the gift voucher.
Overview
Hang Gliding at altitude is the closest thing to soaring like a bird. In some senses it's the purest form of aviation. Going up to 2000' above the ground is one of the most unique ways to see the Outer Banks. At 2000' you'll be amazed at how fragile the barrier islands look. The quiet of air will be both exhilarating and peaceful at the same time.

Your first time flying in a Hang Glider should definitely be near where the Wright Brother's learned to fly.

At check in each participant signs waivers. Each participant is considered a student by USHPA and the FAA, so you will each receive a pre-flight orientation. Then we will escort you to the runway by golf cart to the Landing Zone.

We fly one student per flight with an USHPA certified Tandem Hang Gliding Instructor. Students will fly in the order that they check in according to their appointment. We will usually fly 3-6 students per hour depending on conditions and how many people are signed up.

During your Tandem Hang Gliding Experience, you will fly tandem in a trapeze harness (lying on your belly), and the instructor will fly in the bottom harness. We pull the hang glider on wheels (landing gear) behind a slow flying aircraft up to 2000' feet. Once at 2000' feet your instructor will release the tow cable from the aircraft, and you and your instructor will glide freely back to the ground where you'll land where you took off on wheels. Enjoy the views, feel the wind, and you'll also get a chance to feel the controls of the hang glider. This is the closest thing to knowing what it feels like to fly like a bird!
