Maritime Hang Gliding Academy

Helmed by passionate sky-scraper Scott Newman, Maritime Hang Gliding Academy transports the landlocked to breathtaking heights with tandem glides and lessons. After donning a harness, novice flyers strap into the tandem hang glider with the expert wind-catcher before climbing up to 1,000-1,500 feet, depending on wind strength and forecasted kite-traffic patterns. With comprehensive safety chats and sturdy harnesses, the airy jaunts introduce students to the quiet of engine-free sky transportation.
