Beginner Hang Gliding Lessons
  Beginning hang gliding students will fly in their first lesson at
5 to 10 feet above
the ground with the Blue Sky 'Low and Slow'
scooter towing methods developed by Steve Wendt. Large and
forgiving training gliders let you begin safely. The feeling of
floating just above the ground for hundreds of feet is something
you'll never forget.  On the first day you will go through a basic
ground school and equipment orientation.  You will learn how to
hold and run with the glider while keeping your body in the proper position to control the gliders balance for proper speed and
directional control.  Steve won't let you get higher until you
master the basic skills.  Plus, no carrying the glider back up
the hill.  Scooter tow training allows you to fly over.....

..... flat ground.  Fatigue is minimal while the fun meter is max.
Lessons are generally taught in the early morning while the air near
the ground is calm.  If you decide that becoming a more serious hang glider pilot is your dream, Blue Sky can take you there at whatever
pace fits your schedule and finances. It takes about 12 to 15 lessons
to graduate to 1000 foot altitudes , but you simply fly higher based on your comfort level and skills you develop, safety first! You
can purchase individual lessons, or pay in advance for packages of lessons that can save you money.  So, make your dream of flight a reality with Blue Sky.
