Accelerate your training on the sand dunes with a personal trainer!
Normal Beginner/Advanced 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 and progress toward your Hang 1, but if you’d like to accelerate the process, Private Instruction may be the path for you!
Private lessons will place you with a lead instructor and focuses your training on developing and refining the skills necessary to meet the requirements for the Hang 1 rating. Most private lessons will offer at least 10 flights per student
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.
