The need to feel the wind in your hair is most easily fulfilled by riding in a convertible, though it can also be fulfilled by engaging Mother Nature in a screaming match or getting sneezed on by a jumbo jet. Welcome a blast of fresh air with this Groupon.

The Deal

$69 for Tandem Hang-Gliding Flight ($184 Total Value)

  • Tandem Introductory flight (a $149 value
  • Admission to the air-sports park (a $20 value)
  • 30-day membership to the US Hang Gliding and Paragliding Association (a $10 value)
  • Parking (a $5 value on first visit)

Flights are offered Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday from sunrise to sunset. Video and ground school preps budding aerialists for a hands-on lesson in hang-gliding in which an instructor and trainee coast on the wind at heights of more than 1,000 feet. While midflight, the instructor hands over the hang glider's controls to the pupil, which allows the student to test out steering skills as the instructor catches up on yesterday's crossword puzzle.

Hang Gliding

Located on 50 acres of land in Clewiston, The Florida Ridge Air Sports Park gives guests unlimited opportunities to indulge in airborne activities. Winds from the Atlantic Ocean and Gulf Coast converge to create favorable soaring conditions for hang-gliding, paragliding, and controlled umbrella flights. The park also offers pilot-training programs and equipment rentals for expert windsurfers.
