    Mountain Tandem Hang Gliding Lesson

    Not one to keep your feet on the ground? Get your head in the clouds where it belongs during this tandem hang gliding lesson! You'll take the plunge from 3,500-feet up, launching off the side of Kagel Mountain in the San Fernando Valley. Prior to your launch, you'll meet your instructor and pilot at Sylmar Flight Park for a quick look at the landing area, before a 45-minute scenic drive up the mountain. There, you'll help assemble the modern, lightweight tandem glider you'll be using, and receive an orientation on safety and flight mechanics. In the air, you'll enjoy 2 miles of exhilarating flight that could take anywhere from 10-20 minutes. Your instructor will show you the basics of steering as you go, even giving you the chance to take the controls for yourself. Of course, you'll enjoy an incredible bird's-eye view of the valley as well, including a view of Los Angeles! Pretty fly, huh?

    Intro Mini Beach Hang Gliding Lesson (Weekend)

    Looking for a little pick-me-up? Learn to hang glide during this introductory course! You'll be getting your feet off the ground (but not too far off!) during a series of easy, low-altitude flights that start with a running jump off of a 30-foot training hill, and finish on a beach 100 yards away. Windsports Soaring Center's professional instructors will teach you all the basics you need to know to maneuver the ultralight glider, starting with a safety briefing and demonstration. Then, over the course of approximately 2 hours, you'll have four separate opportunities to hone your skills. Your instructor will run alongside you during each run, keeping your altitude to no more than 10-feet above the ground. In the process, you'll learn to launch, control your speed and altitude, and land. Thanks to expert instruction and small classes, typically consisting of 5 or fewer people, this is the perfect way to develop fundamental skills and find out if hang gliding is something you'd like to pursue in earnest. Come to think, it also opens up some interesting commuting options ...
