Hang Gliding Experience for One near New York City, NY

Experience the thrill of free flight with a hang gliding adventure near New York City. As the name suggests, you hang from a large, triangular, control frame while you glide. But that’s too descriptive of the whole experience. It’s only when you are already soaring thousands of feet into the air that you get to discover that there is more than simply hanging and gliding in this popular air sport. If it’s your first time to take to the skies, we recommend tandem hang gliding near New York City with a skilled and experienced instructor. Tandem is the term used to describe two-person flights: a certified instructor and a passenger.

 

What’s great about hang gliding near New York City is that after a brief classroom instruction, you can venture into a high altitude flight side by side with your seasoned instructor. The training is simple, comprehensive and will provide assurance to even the most hesitant of flyers. The moment you are securely strapped to the glider, there are two things to keep in mind: run like hell when it’s time to launch and never touch anything that can interfere with your instructors ability to control the glider. Before you even have time to have reservations, you take a running leap from a steep hill into the wind, and in the blink of an eye you’re airborne! As you gain altitude, you’ll realize that it’s quiet and serene up there; you may even get to hear your heart thumping as adrenaline takes over. Once you settle down, you’ll get to enjoy the clarity of New York’s landscape unfolding before your very eyes. And while you wish you could stay up much longer, it’s time to land and by then you’d have a good idea of what hang gliding is all about. You may be thinking when you could try it again or you may even start looking for a glider of your own!
