Ground School is still required for all first time students (or any student that hasn’t taken a lesson at Jockey’s Ridge State Park in the last year)

Accelerate your training on the sand dunes with a personal trainer!

Beginner Hang Gliding Lessons on the sand dunes are taught at a ratio of 1 instructor to 4 or 5 students. We believe that the group setting is a great format for learning to fly, but if you’re interested in more time with the instructor, Private Instruction may be the path for you! Private/semi-private lessons are available by request and dependent on instructor availability. Several weeks advanced notice will usually be needed to accommodate a private hang gliding lesson.

Please note: Private and semi-private lessons still take place at the same time as the regular beginner lessons. You would still participate in the group ground school. Once we get to the sand dunes, however, you would separate from the larger group to train with your own instructor and glider. Private lessons typically offer students 7-10 flights each.

These lessons are available year round at Jockey’s Ridge State Park in Nags Head, NC upon instructor availability.

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!)
