Continue your progression to your first Pilot Rating (USHPA – Hang 1) with the Advanced Beginner Dune Lesson. After you’ve completed the Beginner Dune Lesson, this is the lesson for you.
This Hang Gliding Lesson focuses on developing and refining the skills necessary to meet the requirements for the Hang 1 rating. 7 flights are guaranteed and the student to instructor ratio is reduced to 4:1 with one of our Lead Instructors. These lessons are available year round at Jockey’s Ridge State Park in Nags Head, NC.
Progress to your Hang 1
We offer a series of progressions toward your Hang 1 rating at the Hang Gliding School to meet the needs of whatever your busy schedule may dictate. The Advanced Beginner Lesson is the core training component for achieving the Hang 1 rating. If you’re not sure you want to commit to a series of lessons, this lesson can be taken “a la carte” as many times as is necessary to get you to the point that you can demonstrate the necessary skills to achieve the rating. For those that are more determined we also offer a couple of packages that might save you a little money and help you achieve the rating a more quickly.
Full Day Dune Lesson Package – $209
- 1 Beginner Dune Lesson
- 1 Intermediate Dune Lesson
Combines the Beginner Lesson with 1 Intermediate Lesson and saves you $10. You can upgrade to this package withing 24 hours of taking your Beginner Lesson. It can be accomplished in one day or over the course of two days…whichever fits your schedule.
Hang 1 Training Packages – $699

If you know that you’re ready to go for it, this package will save you the most money per lesson. Sign up for this 6-lesson training package and you’ll save $155 over 6 lessons. You can take all the lessons in 3 days or spread them out at you’re own leisure on weekends or over the course of a whole year (or even longer!). Just keep in mind like with any sport, consistency of training is one of the keys for developing muscle memory and good habits so we encourage you to not wait too long in between lessons.
Hang 1 Camps (7-nights Lodging Included!) – $1099
Available 2-3 times per year in April/May and September/October, these camps are a great way to learn at the same time as other like minded students and give you a great glimpse into the camaraderie of the pilot community.
