Great Lakes Hang Gliding
At Great Lakes Hang Gliding, people can fly like eagles. Much like baby eagles who start off watching from the safety of the nest, beginners benefit from a little expert help. Before their initial tandem flight, aspiring gliders learn basic flight techniques and safety procedures before they are towed to altitude by a plane. Of course, as the name implies, they'll spend that first flight strapped safely to their instructor. After getting their air legs, gliders that want to fly solo can take certification classes on site from the same trusty instructors.
