What You'll Get
- $130 for a full-day intro to hang-gliding lesson for one ($220 value)
Led by Mountain Wings’ USHPA-certified staff, full-day lessons begin with an informative video. Afterward, the group moves to the outside training areas, where participants try out a stationary simulator and then get acquainted with the gliders themselves. Students learn how to properly pick up and hold a glider, and before long, how to run with it. Once ground training is complete, the whole group heads halfway up a training hill to fly five feet off the ground.

About Mountain Wings
Situated at the foot of the Ellenville Mountain site, Mountain Wings has readied students for safe, engine-free flying since 1981. A staff of USHPA-certified instructors shares much of its knowledge on the facility's two training hills—a grassy, gentle bunny hill for beginners. Sprinting, stumbling, and hovering across those hills, groups practice with Condors—slow-flying, easy-to-handle training gliders that work in zero-wind zones. Upon ascending to greater heights and skill levels, students can also snag their own equipment at Mountain Wings' full-service aero-sports shop.
