Best Hang Gliding Schools
If you're a dare devil and love to feel the wind beneath your wings, you should head over to some of the best hang gliding schools in the US for the safest instruction. Hand gliding schools can be found in every state but North Carolina leads the pack as far as the largest and best hand gliding schools.
- If it's the largest hand gliding school in the world you're looking for, head down to Kitty Hawk Kites. Kitty Hawk, the site of the Wright Brother's Memorial, has the best winds and soft sand dunes upon which to land. You can hang glide alone or tandem. Group lessons are also available at this large, seemingly best hand gliding school.
- If you're looking for the oldest, most established hang gliding school in the US, California offers Windsports Soaring Center in Los Angeles. This school was established over 30 years ago and has some of the most seasoned hang gliding instructors around. Just like Kitty Hawk kites, you can join group lessons, fly alone or in tandem with your instructor. You'll be soaring in no time.
- Now, if you're really into the scenery as much as the soaring with the birds, head over to Hawaii and go to the Kauai Birds of Paradise company. This innovative hang gliding school will not only teach you to hang glide, but it will teach you to do it on a trike. Fascinating and fun. Rates start as little as $150 US for a 25-30 minute soar over blue water and high cliffs. For $335, you can get the deluxe lesson which will keep you in the air 80-90 minutes.
