Lookout Mountain Flight Park's flock of USHPA-certified staff members trains hang-gliding neophytes to tickle the troposphere above a 55-acre training ground. The first day of the Falcon package 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 and indoor simulated flights. After five practice sessions the first morning and 10 the following day, 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. The afternoon session supplies the highlights of the experience, as students strap into a tandem hang glider for an aerotow flight 2,000 feet above Lookout Valley. Before students depart the premises, they don a Lookout Mountain T-shirt that commemorates inaugural flights and replaces wardrobes forfeited in high-stakes bird races.

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.

  • “Great laid back place! Awesome experience”

  • “Great experience with a great staff!!!”

  • “I got this as a gift for my fiance :) you have to go up to the office ontop of the mountain first (the gps coordinates are on there website under the directions tab)...”

    “I got this as a gift for my fiance :) you have to go up to the office ontop of the mountain first (the gps coordinates are on there website under the directions tab) and then once your done filling out the paperwork they send you down the mountain where the take off and landing zone is. For tandums they dont jump off the edge of the cliff. They get pulled by this tiny weird airplane up to altitude and then the plane will let go of the glider once high enough and then you glide all the way back to the ground. He absolutely loved his ride! He even got to fly the glider a little bit on his own. There is a nice gazibo for observers to watch too :) make sure to buy the groupon! Its a great deal!”
