Pupils run off the side of a hill strapped to a hang-glider and guided by USHPA-certified instructor Jeff Hunt

The need to feel the wind in your hair is best fulfilled by hang-gliding, though it can also be fulfilled by hot-rodding in a convertible or getting yelled at by a giant who works at the bank. Feel the rush with this Groupon.

Choose Between Two Options

Hang-gliding guru Jeff Hunt begins each introductory lesson with a classroom briefing and ground training where students learn to handle and lift the glider. Next, Hunt will progressively lead them up a practice hill during five training runs that allow students to soar into the sky. Each class—which typically consists of 1-10 students—includes a glider, harness, helmet, and a limited amount of kneepads. Browse the site's FAQ for more information.

Fly Texas

Jeff Hunt probably understood the trajectory of his career path in a way most people don't. Jeff is a CFI (certified flight instructor) in weight shift control through the FAA flying Special Light Sport Aircraft. With an aerospace engineering degree from the University of Texas at Austin and experience working with Tracor Aerospace after college, he is very familiar with how things move forward. Though most aerospace engineers are focused on building spaceships and watering blooming stars, Hunt chose to focus on hang gliders. Over the past 25 years, he has competed in cross-country hang-gliding competitions and become a USHPA-certified advanced instructor. At Fly Texas and Fly Mexico, he shares his passion with students during the intro classes and they learn from his experience with advanced lessons moving forward.
