Choose Between Two Options

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. Both options begin 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. 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.

The 1/2 day training of the hills was so much fun and Julie was an awesome instructor. My tandem instructor, Jason, made my tandem flight so much fun yet safe during the flight. Both were so much fun that I will be back to do it again.
