The need to feel the wind in your hair is best fulfilled by hang-gliding, though it can also be fulfilled by hot-rodding in a convertible or getting yelled at by a giant who works at the bank. Feel the rush with this Groupon.

Choose Between Two Options

Hang-gliding guru Jeff Hunt begins each introductory lesson with a classroom briefing and ground training where students learn to handle and lift the glider. Next, Hunt will progressively lead them up a practice hill during five training runs that allow students to soar into the sky. Each class—which typically consists of 1-10 students—includes a glider, harness, helmet, and a limited amount of kneepads. Browse the site's FAQ for more information.

Fly Texas

Jeff Hunt probably understood the trajectory of his career path in a way most people don't. With an aerospace engineering degree from the University of Texas at Austin and experience working with Tracor Aerospace after college, he is very familiar with how things move forward. Though most aerospace engineers are focused on building spaceships and watering blooming stars, Hunt chose to focus on hang-gliders. Over the past 25 years, he has competed in cross-country hang-gliding competitions and become a USHPA-certified advanced tandem instructor. At Fly Texas and Fly Mexico, he shares his passion with students during half-day and daylong hang-gliding classes or shuttles more experienced gliders on flights.
