The Deal

Lookout Mountain Flight Park’s flock of USHPA-certified staff members train hang gliding neophytes to tickle the troposphere above a 55-acre training ground. The experience begins with basic training at Lookout Mountain’s ground school to teach fliers and aspiring cartographers how to launch and control a glider through flat-ground training. Students get their wind legs by learning to surf 5–10 feet above the 65-foot practice hill under the guidance of a certified instructor.

Lookout Mountain Flight Park

A U.S. Hang Gliding and Paragliding Association–rated master pilot, Matt Taber has been soaring through the skies since 1978, during which time he's managed to design several of his own gliders. He's also devised and constructed other contraptions, such as glider-towing equipment and lightweight tow planes—both of which his company, Lookout Mountain Flight Park, uses to teach new recruits how to surf the skies. Matt leads a team of USHPA-certified pilots and instructors that coaches students of all levels in basics and advanced maneuvers through on-the-ground training and hands-on tandem flights, during which pilots safely guide their charges over the scenic mountains and blurry bushes of Lookout Valley. Conducted on a 55-acre private training facility, lessons can include the overnight use of amenities such as a pool, volleyball court, bathhouse, and cabins.

Bought this for my daughter as a birthday gift. She had an amazing time, everyone was so great and made sure she was taken care of. They even took her up to 3000 ft instead of 1500 and comp'd her pics and video. Just a great place with great people and so much fun, she can't wait to do it again.
