Video and ground school preps budding aerialists for a hands-on lesson in hang-gliding in which an instructor and trainee coast on the wind at heights of more than 1,500 feet—which is higher than the Empire State Building. While midflight, the instructor hands over the hang glider's controls to the pupil, which allows the student to test out steering skills as the instructor catches up on yesterday's crossword puzzle.
