The need to feel the wind in your hair is best fulfilled by ultralight hang-gliding, though it can also be fulfilled by riding in a convertible, swinging on a tire swing, or getting sneezed on by a jumbo jet. Ruffle your locks with this Groupon.

Ideal for Father's Day gifts, ultralights consist of a hang-glider wing powered by a three-wheeled, motorized undercarriage. Each flight begins with a ground-training lesson, during which burgeoning cloud wranglers learn the controls and safety information of the vessel. One or two individual 10- to 15-minute flights follow as certified instructors navigate the kite to more than 2,000 feet in the air, relinquishing the controls so beginner pilots, if comfortable, can put their training into practice.
Adventure At Altitude
Open seven days a week all year, Adventure At Altitude's instructors teach groundlings to soar with the aid of hang-gliders, ultralights, and flying boats. During adrenaline-pumping experiences, guests can share a tandem vessel or pilot their own hang-glider while soaring up to 5,300 feet in the air. Ultralight SkyRides place passengers at the helm of a hang-glider wing powered by a motorized undercarriage. Passengers are welcome to try out aerobatic tricks such as dives, spins, and wingovers, or teach their partners the proper arm signals for left-hand turns in the air.
