Hang-gliding grants views normally only afforded to pilots and syndicates of airplane-headphone thieves. Soar more honestly with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- C$149 for a Low and Slow class (C$250 value)
- C$79 for a weekday tandem hang-gliding session (C$139 value)
During the Low and Slow class, students learn about hang gliders, including a ground-handling lesson and time in the hands-on flight simulator. Next, students take to an actual glider, where a winch pulls them slowly just a few feet above the ground, while an instructor controls how high it goes.
The tandem session also uses a winch to get the hang glider in the air. The student soars with an instructors, and can just enjoy the ride or can take the controls from the teacher.
Customers can use their Groupons toward the weekend tandem session that includes HD video, or can receive a $250 discount if they sign up for the entire hang-gliding course.
Fly Gravity Sports
Rolling patches of endless landscape below. Mountain ranges rising ever higher in the distance, far from civilization's buildings and burning stacks of Beatles records. Trees, clouds, and wind—this is a typical day spent with Fly Gravity Sports.
An HPAC-certified pilot, David Llewellyn helps make these human flights possible. In his 15 years of hang-gliding, he has ascended thousands of times over Canada, the United States, and Latin America. Today, he uses Fraser Valley and the surrounding lower mainland as his backdrop during family-friendly tandem flights. He and the Fly Gravity Sports team also provide continuing education for experienced gliders, introducing them to the facility's modern winch-tow technique that requires no effort in becoming airborne.
