Tandem Hang Gliding
We are returning to have tandem hang gliding with Hangar 3. We have been to Hangar 3 each of last five years and it was certainly a blast!
Hang gliding grants man his primal wish to soar with the condors. Since recorded thought man has dreamed of having wings and hang gliding makes that dream come true. Imagine flying like an eagle. You are thousands of feet above the earth’s surface. Although the air is brisk, the view is stunning and the feeling is exhilarating. You seek out updrafts of air to keep you flying so that you marvel in the view for as long as you can. This is hang gliding. Tandem hang gliding offers you the same experience within the guide of an experienced professional. Tandem hang gliding in New York allows for some of the finest moments you can experience in the air. It’s Tandem Hang Gliding New York! Learn more here...
The morning will start with a safety briefing and instruction, and you will be towed in a tandem hang glider to 2,500 ft above ground with an 'USPHA' rated tandem instructor at your side, then release to fly freely like a bird and land safely on wheels. They video each flight with an on board camera. (Video costs additional $40)
