This introductory course begins with a presentation of history, flight principles, and safety considerations relevant to beginning hang gliding. After assisting in setup and preflight procedures, we begin level ground training. Ground-handling instruction evolves into a gradual ascent onto the training slope. Several attempts at man’s oldest dream mark the end of this very enjoyable beginning of your personal quest for flight. Students can be suspended in a simulator to become familiar with weight shift and correct posture if needed.
