There are few things as liberating as being able to fly, which is why humans invented airplanes and why penguins constantly try to sabotage them by climbing into their jet engines. Feel the freedom of the skies with this Groupon.
Choose From Three Options
- $89 for an ultra intro solo foot-launch lesson for one (a $199 value), valid on weekends only
- $175 for an ultra intro solo foot-launch lesson for two (a $398 value), valid on weekends only

The three- to five-hour ultra intro lesson begins with an introductory film and ground-school session that helps students bone up on foot-launch fundamentals. Next, pilots strap into the provided gear and saddle up in gliders before taking up to flights off the park’s five training hills while a master pilot keeps a close watch.
This Groupon is only valid on weekends after April 1, 2015, and hang-gliders must be between 90 and 250 pounds.
