There is nothing like it…Tandem hang gliding will be one of the most exciting experiences of your life. Fly to altitudes of 2000ft or higher with a certified hang gliding instructor from our flight park at the Cotton Gin in Jarvisburg, NC.

Cotton Gin Flight Flight Park || April – September

Fly to altitudes of 2,000 feet or higher with a certified instructor from our Currituck County flight park. The views of Currituck Sound, the ocean, and the surrounding countryside are breathtaking from these altitudes.

Once released from the tow plane, the only sounds are from you, the instructor and the wind flowing around you. These elements, combined with stalls, dives and turns, are sure to make tandem hang gliding the most exciting and memorable experience of your stay on the Outer Banks.

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.

No prior hang gliding experience necessary!

A big thank you to Alex Perry and the Currituck Visitors Bureau for their help with the 360 film!
