Trike flying sounds like a sport from a toddler’s daydream, but it’s actually an alternate name for powered hang gliding, Hang Glide USA’s specialty. The company’s gliders are outfitted with engines but can also fly with their engines off, riding wind currents over Amelia Island’s scenic beaches on the Atlantic Ocean. Wind ruffles passengers’ hair, thanks to the gliders’ open-air cockpits. And though they can try their hand at the controls, passengers are always accompanied by one of the company’s instructors. Every instructor has a perfect safety record and teaches passengers flying basics during airborne rides.
