Tandem Hang Gliding

Experience the thrill of flight with a  tandem hang gliding discovery flight with an instructor side by side. This is your first taste of the freedom of hang gliding over the beautiful Sierra Nevada Mountains  – Imagine soaring like an eagle!

You will launch off of Slide Mountain soaring around catching thermals that we can ride up thousands of feet over the mountains! A typical Tandem flight lasts about 15-25 minutes. During the flight you can sit back and relax take in the breath taking sights, if you would like to fly the glider your instructor will show you how to fly the glider and let you take over controls!

We fly everyday if conditions are good!
