An FAA-certified flight instructor takes visitors soaring above the landscape in an amphibious hang glider while a high-definition camera captures the flight. The video is transferred onto an SD card to take home. The entire experience lasts about 30 minutes, with 15–20 minutes of flight time.
The FAA–certified Cygnet II–powered hang glider bearing the Amphibian Air stamp gives riders a bird's-eye view of Savannah and the outlying Low Country as they zip about during guided lessons. An FAA–certified instructor takes the front seat in the trike's open-air cockpit directly ahead of the student and demonstrates the basics of flying before allowing his pupil to take the controls if conditions permit. A certificate of training documents the flight for the student, which can be used toward a sport-pilot license. Amphibian Air recommends wearing comfortable clothing and making reservations for sunrise or sunset any day of the week, as those are some of the best times for a smooth flight.
