51st Annual Hang Gliding Spectacular

Join professional hang gliders, fans, and families for this Kitty Hawk Flight School tradition. The Hang Gliding Spectacular is the longest-running hang gliding competition in the world! We are excited to celebrate the 51st consecutive year of this event and have many fun activities planned – a retro glider display, a video and photo exhibit, and more!

Kitty Hawk Kites invites pilots from all over the country to come fly with us for this four-day event at Jockey’s Ridge State Park in Nags Head, NC, and the Cotton Gin in Jarvisburg, NC (full schedule coming soon). We will have gliders from Wills Wing and Moyes and new Flytec equipment to demo.  Fun Fact: In 2022, we had over 100 pilots attend this amazing event, the most we have ever had!!!

The Hang Gliding Spectacular and Air Games is FREE TO THE PUBLIC FOR VIEWING with fun activities all day long.
