Hang Gliding Chicago-Milwaukee
At Hang Gliding Chicago-Milwaukee, 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.
One of the best experiences I had in my life actually got to fly it !!!!!! No doubt I have to come back to do it again. The operator Rik was professional and made this an experience to remember. I would highly recommend it...

Rick was great. I felt safe and he definitely knew what he was doing. A lot of great stories. We showed up a little early and because he didn't have appointments until after us. We were able to glide for a little longer. Place was easy to find. Cannot say enough great things about this place. I would go back and definitely recommend to friends and family.
