What You'll Get
Hang gliders are thrilling and majestic to watch, especially when they’re shredding through vengeful, murderous clouds. Be a vapor gaper with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $109 for a tandem hang-gliding discovery flight for one (a $229 value)
- $205 for a tandem hang-gliding discovery flight for two (a $458 value)
A light sport airplane tows instructor and student up to an elevation of 2,000 feet. From here, the hang-glider and student soar for approximately 20 minutes, taking in views of both Florida coasts. While mid-flight, instructors hand over the controls and teach students to turn, slow down, and speed up. After flights, newly crowned pilots can stick around and take advantage of Quest Air Soaring Center’s private lake, which features activities such as fishing, swimming, and paddle-boating.

About Quest Air Soaring Center
Flying in one of Quest Air Soaring Center's hang gliders is like transforming into a giant bird. The cockpit, floor, and engine of a traditional aircraft are all stripped away, leaving nothing but unparalleled views of Lake County. In good weather, visibility stretches to both of Florida's coasts and reveals everything in between: Disney, Universal Studios theme park, and even Cape Canaveral. Quest's certified hang-gliding instructors teach new fliers to navigate this elevated terrain during tandem discovery flights that introduce basic concepts such as turning and accelerating. As students progress, they move on to solo flights and more advanced skills, such as navigating thermals and rescuing pedestrians from the tops of broken ferris wheels.
Leading these aerial excursions are Quest Air Soaring Center's experienced hang-gliding pilots and instructors. When not soaring through the air, they spend time on their company's private lake, where gear for fishing, paddle boating, and other aquatic activities are available to Quest Air's customers free of charge.
