Tandem Hang Gliding

$215.00
Where: Locust Hill, Ontario
Price for: 1 Participant
Enjoy the ultimate free-soaring experience! Tandem Hang Gliding is an exciting and peaceful way to take in the panoramic view of the earth below.

Soar through the skies above the beautiful Ontario country side during this incredible tandem hang gliding experience.

Tandem Hang Gliding allows you to experience the freedom of flight by the side of a certified professional. Surrounded by 30,000 empty acres, the view is breathtakingly beautiful. You’ll see Lake Ontario immediately and then Lake Scugog and sometimes even Lake Simcoe. It’s a dream come true…a truly unforgettable experience!

The glider is launched from a flat field on wheels. No running is required. Following a brief orientation, you and your pilot will be towed up with a hydraulic winch to about 1300 feet where the tow line is released, and you are both free to soar about the open sky. When it is time to land your instructor will bring you both in for an easy, gentle landing on the wheels.

This Hang Gliding Experience offers a serene, bird's-eye perspective of a beautiful landscape and is the perfect unique gift for anyone who dreams of flying!

Wing-mounted photos are included with flights.

Duration: The entire lesson lasts about half an hour. The time in the air can be anywhere from 5-20 minutes. There is no guarantee regarding the length of your actual flight. Factors such as wind strength, direction and thermals, as well as total weight of participants, etc. can affect the length of your flight from take-off to landing.
