$89 for Tandem Hang-Gliding Flight Package ($179 Total Value)

  • Tandem Discovery flight (a $149 value)
  • Admission to the air-sports park (a $15 value)
  • 30-day membership to US Hang Gliding and Paragliding Association (a $10 value)
  • Parking (a $5 value on first visit)<p>

Flights are offered Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday from sunrise to sunset. A 30-minute video and ground-school session prep budding aerialists for a hands-on lesson in hang-gliding in which an instructor and trainee coast on the wind at heights of more than 1,500 feet—which is higher than the Empire State Building. While midflight, the instructor hands over the hang-glider’s controls to the pupil, which allows the student to test out steering skills as the instructor catches up on yesterday’s crossword puzzle. Customers may apply the value of their Groupon toward an upgrade to a different flight if desired.

Hang Gliding

Located on 50 acres of land in Clewiston, The Florida Ridge Air Sports Park gives guests unlimited opportunities to indulge in airborne activities. Winds from the Atlantic Ocean and Gulf Coast converge to create favorable soaring conditions for hang-gliding, paragliding, and controlled umbrella flights. The park also offers pilot-training programs and equipment rentals for expert windsurfers.

Customer Reviews

Everyone was great. The hang gliding itself surpassed my expectations. If using the Groupon, I highly recommend upgrading from the included Discovery Flight to any of their other flights that go to a higher altitude so you can increase your time, it was well worth it. And make sure to bring money to pay for taxes and tip (trust me, you're gonna wanna tip them). They also sell pictures and video of your flight. The quality is amazing, I'm glad I bought it.
