This is the ultimate tandem hang gliding tow at 5,280 feet! The tandem lesson is the most state-of-the-art training available, and perfect for students who want to get an overall perspective of hang gliding with a bird’s eye view of the coastline above the Currituck Sound. No experience is necessary, and this sky high lesson is handicapped accessible.
Don’t forget to bring some warmer clothes for the cooler months, because flying in an open air glider at a mile high will likely be 20+ degrees cooler than the ground temperature! This may be a welcome reprieve from the sweltering summer heat, but flights in March, April and even May and September can be quite brisk. Keep that in mind when booking your Mile High Tandem flight. 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 the Cotton Gin on the Currituck County mainland. Our Flight park location is approximately 30-45 minutes drive from Kitty Hawk and just a little over an hours drive from VA Beach.
