He's very nice, me and my sister had a great time we would do again
Natesha N. · August 27, 2017
Flying with Steve at Blue Sky Hang Gliding was a pleasure. He provided encouraging feedback after each flight and was always positive. It was tiring (you'll run alot) but once you find the sweet spot of the glider, it's an amazing sensation. If hang gliding is on your bucket list, as it was mine, I HIGHLY recommend giving Blue Sky (Steve) a call!

About Blue Sky Virginia Hang Gliding

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.
