Intro tandem flight season starts on May 1. Flights take place at Hope Regional Airport, and are available from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. every day of the week. Sessions begin with a preflight briefing before students get hooked in beside their pilot. Shortly after, flights launch straight from the glider's wheels, with no running or yelling of “mush!” required. While sailing at altitudes of up to 2,000 feet, students can take control of the glider under their pilot's guidance, or just soak in the mountainous terrain and pine trees below. Requests for disabled customers or flying with children can be accommodated upon request by phone.

Fly Gravity Sports

Rolling patches of endless landscape below. Mountain ranges rising ever higher in the distance, far from civilization's buildings and burning stacks of Beatles records. Trees, clouds, and wind—this is a typical day spent with Fly Gravity Sports.

An HPAC-certified pilot, David Llewellyn helps make these human flights possible. In his 15 years of hang-gliding, he has ascended thousands of times over Canada, the United States, and Latin America. Today, he uses Fraser Valley and the surrounding lower mainland as his backdrop during family-friendly tandem flights. He and the Fly Gravity Sports team also provide continuing education for experienced gliders, introducing them to the facility's modern winch-tow technique that requires no effort in becoming airborne.
