What You'll Get
For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction, which is why every time a human attempts to fly, a bird attempts to drive a stick shift. Engage in one of the primary mandates of physics with today’s Groupon to Dive High at the New Jerusalem Airport in Tracy. Choose between the following options:
- For $85, you get a first-day introductory hang-gliding lesson (a $170 value).
- For $165, you get a first-day introductory hang-gliding lesson for two (a $340 value).
Dive High’s instructors safely prepare terrestrials age 13–80 for exhilarating skybound journeys aboard hang gliders. Each session of 60 minutes or more (depending on the weather) includes a thorough ground training, during which teachers carefully lead solo students or pairs of neophyte gliders through the particulars of ground handling, glider preflight operations, foot-launch techniques, and proper pick-up. Like a flying squirrel learning to spread its wings or an egret learning to play bass guitar, students learn via dedicated one-on-one instruction. Dive High’s unique Flight Deck system guides novices through their initial airborne voyages by securing them to a mobile platform pulled along by a truck, preventing beginning flyers from drifting off course or falling in with an unsavory flock of wrens. As students drift through the air underneath their newly acquired wings, they fly for at least four breathtaking minutes, giving them a chance to apply their newly acquired sky-skimming knowledge.

About Dive High
Dive High's instructors teach students how to hang-glide with ease and safety. In beginner's lessons, they’ll learn fundamental skills such as taking off, landing, and how to call your hang glider back to your arm if it flies off on its own. The lessons become more in-depth over long-term courses, eventually allowing students to take sustained flights over the San Jose area.
