High Desert Hang Gliding
High Desert Hang Gliding's well-practiced instructors teach beginning aviators how to soar through the sky with a hang glider. All students begin on a 25-foot training hill, where they learn the basics of launching and landing before being cleared to take off into the wild blue yonder to rendezvous with handsome pterodactyls. With a course of 10 lessons, ambitious gliders can attain a solid understanding of ground-school theory, acquire the ability to fly without direct instructor supervision, and procure enough knowledge to pass the USHPA Novice Hang Gliding written exam.
