Strapped into an ultramodern Revo Trike powered hang-glider, FAA-certified instructor Paul Hamilton pilots students above Lake Tahoe?s crystalline expanse, which reveals picturesque reflections of the Sierra Mountains? snow-capped crags.
A light-sport aircraft powered by a purring Rotax engine, the Evolution Revo trike enables the prolonged airtime and weather compatibility not found in flights with a conventional hang-glider or out-of-control umbrella. During Paul?s lessons, intro students swiftly suit up in appropriate flight gear before a quick safety briefing prepares them for the journey.
An emphasis on hands-on training anchors the interactive lessons, which require no previous experience and may even take off in winter thanks to Hang Gliding Tahoe?s heated apparel and midflight campfires.
