$145 for an Introductory Powered-Hang-Glider Flight ($366 Value)

During the 30-minute flight, a certified instructor introduces participants to the powered hang glider. The light aircraft lets its passengers soar like a kite above green fields and rolling countryside. Pilots decrease the throttle, and the glider gently carries the aircraft toward a soft landing.

Silver Lining Aviation

Silver Lining Aviation's certified instructors create adventures like this every day as they teach visitors to soar behind the controls of sport aircrafts such as weight-shift trikes. Silver Lining's team takes prospective pilots on introductory flights that allow them to experience aircrafts such as the Evolution Trikes Weight Shift Trike and nibble on different flavors of clouds. The aviation experts also sell sport aircrafts, which patiently wait onsite as customers work through custom ground- and flight-training programs. In most cases, the flight instructors prepare their pupils for aerial navigation in as little as two weeks. They also provide 24/7 support, and cook oil soup to feed hungry aircraft.
