Due to staffing restrictions, we’re currently redesigning our Kid’s curriculum. Please call for more information, while we rework this lesson option.
Our Kids Hang Gliding Lesson is perfect for letting kids experience the thrill of flying! Although there is no weight requirement for this lesson, the child must be able to follow simple commands. Our experienced instructors will ensure your child has a safe and thrilling experience. This new trainer was designed specifically to give people the experience of flight on level ground, flying along at 5′ to 7′ off the ground. Thrust is provided by the instructors.
The glider is appropriately named the “Boone Flyer” after Richard Boone, well know pioneer hang glider designer and aerospace engineer. He designed the glider so that people of all ages and capabilities could experience the feeling of flight no mater what their physical capabilities were. He has flown people with disabilities and children with terminal diseases, putting a big smile on their faces. The Boone Flyer was specially designed and built for Morningside, a Kitty Hawk Kites Flight Park.
Kids Hang Gliding lessons are conducted at our training hill. Kids will get 3 flights each. Currently, our kids lessons are available by appointment only. They usually begin around 1:30 (following the conclusion of the intro lesson).
