The ultimate hang gliding experience. Released at 5,280 feet - a mile in the air - you'll be aloft for so long that you'll feel like you were born with wings. There is quite simply no better way to enjoy hang gliding - with no previous experience required!

Activity Highlights

  • Fly tandem with a certified instructor
  • Towed to 5,280 feet (a mile up)
  • Control the glider yourself
  • Enjoy aerobatics under the safe control of your experienced pilot
  • Fly for so long you'll think you have wings!

Get a taste of everything hang gliding has to offer, from flying past your own shadow on the clouds to watching rainbows of refracted light, from gliding serenely above beautiful Florida to the excitement of aerobatics.

Our Mile High Tandem Flight starts with your safety and piloting briefing. Once you're clear on procedures, you'll strap in for the flight of a lifetime! Our ultra-light aircraft will tow your glider to a height of 5,280 feet - one mile - before releasing you to descend.

Under the guidance of our professional instructor, you'll have the opportunity to experience the very best of modern hang gliding in total safety. Fly among the clouds like a bird, without any engine noise. Glide gracefully above the Florida landscape, a mile below you. Take control of the glider, safe in the knowledge that your qualified instructor is there to support you.

And when you're ready, get a taste of the thrills, too. Modern hang gliders don't just glide - they spin, they stall, they dive, they do 360s and wing-overs. Your instructor can show you just what a glider can do, and get your heart pounding with excitement!
