- $145 for a one-hour introductory powered-hang-glider lesson ($366 value)
After 15 minutes of initial instruction, student/instructor pairs ascend for a 30-minute flight. The light aircraft lets its passengers soar like a kite above green fields and rolling countryside, traveling up to 110 mph at altitudes of 500–10,000 feet depending on student comfort. Pilots decrease the throttle, and the glider gently carries the aircraft toward a soft landing. Afterward, you and your instructor will regroup for a 15-minute followup session. Customers who'd like photos and video from the onboard camera can purchase them for an additional $85 fee.
