Spread Your Wings and Fly
If floating above the surface in a two-person flying machine sparks your imagination, take to the sky in a powered hang glider.
During your flight, you’ll learn the basics of weight-shift control, aerodynamics and safety, as well as a bit about weather and its effects on aviation.
Once you’ve reached a relaxed flying altitude, an interesting phenomenon sometimes takes hold. There’s a tendency to forget that a pilot is navigating your course, that an engine is powering the way, and that you’re strapped into a two-seater flying machine, attached only to a wing. All that fades into a new feeling, one that resembles wingless flight.
Anyone who’s seen the Big Island from above knows its magic. But if you want to get caught in its spell, take a lesson in a powered hang glider. Check out Island Ultralight for more information.
