$149 for a Full-Day Hang-Gliding Lesson ($299 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 realize mankind's dream of flying 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.
