The 2000′ Tandem Aerotow Lesson is perfect for thrill seekers who want to get an overall perspective of hang gliding with a bird’s eye view of the coastline above the Currituck Sound on the Outer Banks. No experience is necessary, and this sky high hang gliding lesson is handicapped accessible.
In tandem hang gliding, the student and instructor are hooked into the glider together. The glider is designed specifically for tandems with a larger wing area for more lift and tricycle landing gear to simplify take offs and landings. An ultralight plane tows you to altitude, the glider is released, then you and your instructor glide back to the airport where you land like a plane. PLEASE NOTE: As of July 1st, 2016 per our insurance requirements the minimum age to tandem hang glide is 10 years old.
We offer Tandem Hang Gliding Lessons seasonally at two locations on the Currituck County mainland. Our two Flight park locations are approximately 30-45 minutes drive from Kitty Hawk and just a little over an hours drive from VA Beach.
CURRITUCK AIRPORT approximately 45 min from Kitty Hawk & 1 HR from VA Beach
COTTON GIN approximately 30 min from Kitty Hawk
The Making of a Pilot
If you’ve ever dreamed of flying or soaring like a bird, becoming a hang glider pilot is something you should consider. The USHPA Hang 2 rating should be your goal because this is the gateway to the sport – we can help get you there.
We offer Hang 2 aerotow training from late spring through late September/early October, and the 2000′ Tandem Aerotow Lessons are the building blocks of that training. With “towing” lesson packages available to help you save on this process, just give us a call to ask us about what we offer in terms of helping you get closer to making your dream a reality.
