Hang gliding is still one of the best ways to enjoy total freedom in the air, in complete safety - and you don't have to train for hours to experience it! Our tandem discovery flight is an ideal opportunity to get off the ground and soar above the beautiful Florida countryside!

Activity Highlights

  • Fly tandem with a certified instructor to guide you
  • Towed to 1,500 feet
  • Control the glider yourself

With a tandem discovery flight, you have the opportunity to experience the joy of free flight and the thrill of soaring over a quarter mile above the ground, without any prior training. And you won't have to throw yourself off a cliff to get the glider airborne!

Hang gliding used to be considered an "extreme sport", but with the advent of better technology, robust equipment, and proper training courses, the only "extreme" in modern basic gliding is the safety!

Our experienced instructor will go through basic instructions with you before take-off. Then they'll strap in below you, and your glider will be towed up to 1,500 feet (about 0.28 miles) before release.

From there, it's just you and the qualified instructor. No engine noise, great views, and no landing worries - you can fly completely free as you descent gracefully toward the Florida countryside below! You'll take control of your glider, with the instructor to support you and make sure everything is smooth but exciting.

And if you get the hang gliding bug, you can even count the cost of your tandem discovery flight towards a complete solo training package!
