The three- to five-hour ultra intro lesson begins with an introductory film and ground-school session that helps students bone up on hang-gliding fundamentals. Next, pilots strap into the provided gear and saddle up in gliders before taking up to flights off the park’s five training hills while a master pilot keeps a close watch.

Susquehanna Flight Park

Certified by the US Hang Gliding and Paragliding Association and drawing upon more than three decades of in-sky experience, master pilot and instructor Dan Guido teaches the basics of foot-launch hang-gliding to a new generation of enthusiasts. He puts SSusquehanna Flight Park’s five training hills and one mountain launch to good use by introducing fundamentals during beginning practice runs or demonstrating how to stop at eagle crossings during advanced soaring sessions. Lessons schemes range from single introductory sessions to the six-session Hang One program, which helps new fliers earn their USHPA Novice rating.
