I can't say enough about Amy and Dan and the Susquehanna Flight Park. They both have expansive knowledge and enthusiasm for hang gliding matched with their kindness and patience. I went with my son who learned quickly and Dan and Amy adjusted the lesson to cater to what we both needed. We are both hooked and look forward to continuing with Dan and Amy. Thank you for a great day!!!

What You'll Get


The human obsession with flight stems from a refusal to accept limitations and an intense desire to find out which of the neighbors secretly have pools. Put your eyes in the skies with this Groupon: for $99, you get an introductory hang-gliding lesson at Susquehanna Flight Park in Cooperstown (a $199 value). Classes take place on weekends from April to November and start promptly at 9 a.m. Students should wear long pants and comfortable shoes.

Master pilot and USHPA-certified instructor Dan Guido calls upon more than 30 years of sky-high experience to teach the basics of foot-launch hang-gliding at his 40-acre Susquehanna Flight Park. The three- to five-hour Ultra Intro lesson commences with an introductory film and ground-school session in which students learn the fundamentals of hang-gliding, from strapping into the glider to parallel parking alongside a passing cloud. Next, beginner pilots harness gliders into provided gear before taking nine opportunities to fly off the park’s five training hills. Dan keeps a keen eye on the proceedings at all times, lending advice and periodically checking the weather conditions to ensure safety. After developing consistent techniques, students can enroll in one of the flight park’s pilot-training programs.
