In the Air – First Lesson!
Instinct Windsports offers new students a four hour introductory session. You will quickly and safely learn about modern hang gliding training techniques. And, you will get to Fly the Hang Glider YOURSELF, on your first lesson! Your introductory flight will be from flat ground, with little or no wind, and you will stay within 5 feet of the ground as you learn for yourself, how much fun Hang Gliding really is. It’s a great venue to learn how to fly Hang Gliders.
Your Hang Gliding Intro Session includes a brief but thorough instruction about hang gliding including a look at the hang gliding aircraft and equipment.

The Scooter-Tow is the glider industry standard method of instruction for introducing new glider pilots to flying in the air. Don’t worry. You’ll never get higher than you are comfortable with, and a certified glider is used that is designed for beginner instruction.
