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: for $75, you get an introductory hang-gliding lesson at Sacramento Hang Gliding (a $150 value). Choose between the following options:

  • A lesson Tuesday–Friday
  • A lesson on a Saturday or Sunday

Sacramento Hang Gliding’s instructors demonstrate the joy of soaring through the atmospheric boundary layer by launching gallant gliders skyward from their Rancho Murieta training site. In the four-hour introductory lesson, instructors fill in fledgling fliers on flight theories, delving into scientific explanations as well as gravitational myths. Students get acquainted with their air-traversing apparatus during a pretrip inspection, then spend time rehearsing navigational inputs and movements on a stimulator stand. Afterward, students kick off from shallow slopes and increasingly higher hills as the instructor gallops alongside.
