$183 for an Introductory Powered-Hang-Glider Flight ($366 Value)

During the 30-minute flight, a certified instructor introduces participants to the powered hang glider. The light aircraft lets its passengers soar like a kite above green fields and rolling countryside. Pilots decrease the throttle, and the glider gently carries the aircraft toward a soft landing.

Silver Lining Aviation

Engines start to roar, propellers spin, and a large parachute expands into the sky, carrying a light aircraft and its passengers toward the clouds. Silver Lining Aviation's certified instructors create adventures like this every day as they teach visitors to soar behind the controls of sport aircrafts such as powered parachutes, weight-shift trikes, and gyroplanes. Led by licensed FAA flight instructor Craig Ewing, Silver Lining's team takes prospective pilots on introductory flights that allow them to experience aircrafts such as the Airwolf 912 and nibble on different flavors of clouds. The aviation experts also sell sport aircrafts, which patiently wait onsite as customers work through custom ground- and flight-training programs. In most cases, the flight instructors prepare their pupils for aerial navigation in as little as two weeks. They also assist new pilots with replacement parts, provide 24/7 support, and cook oil soup to feed hungry aircraft.

Super fun flight and experience. When I semi-retire next year, you will be hearing from me for training and a bird of my own.
