Weather is an unpredictable factor. You must be flexible with when you can participate. Be prepared to reschedule multiple times or to have an altered session due to weather shifts during the lesson. The school wants to ensure your safety. Otherwise, the instruction, coaching, and customer service are excellent. I thoroughly enjoyed the experience I had today, and I plan to return.

Steve is a great instructor who emphasizes safety in all things. Be prepared for changing wind conditions, since they affect both the safety and the ability to fly. Make sure to keep in touch with Steve prior to your reservation day for weater conditions. Not an easy sport to master, but very easy to enjoy.

My boys had a wonderful experience. Steve was patient and instructs well. We will definitely go again. Please be patient with the weather it can cause a few cancellations but Steve was more than willing to work with us.

Bring a cooler filled with ice, water and food. There are no food places in that area. You will slide and crash in the grass so wear clothes you don't care about and wearing long pants is a good idea. Bring at least a change of socks because the grass could be very wet. There is no shade so sunblock and sunglasses is important. If it's your first time it's a intense workout. My hips, thighs, abs and chest ached for a few days from bad landings and the workout of holding the hang glider and running. It's not easy to balance the hang glider so have some patience.

From Our Editors

Steve Wendt brings nearly 40 years of experience soaring the skies to his lessons at Blue Sky Virginia Hang Gliding's flight park, where he instructs gliders of all experience levels in launch methods ranging from training-hill foot launches to towing. Through personalized instruction in classes certified by the U.S. Hang Gliding and Paragliding Association, he hones flyers? skills in solo and tandem hang-gliding and in piloting trikes and paragliders against elite racing pigeons. Using aero-towing, park staff members can tow pilots to heights of more than 2,000 feet, or get them airborne with platform and scooter towing.

Staff also outfit certified pilots and enthusiasts with a fleet of gliders from brands such as Aeros, Icaro 2000, Moyes, and North Wing, each made from aircraft-grade aluminum and Dacron sailcloth. In the event of regular wear and tear or run-ins with jealous paper airplanes, they can also sew sails, repair harnesses, and bend frames back into shape in a repair facility.
