I can't say enough about Amy and Dan and the Susquehanna Flight Park. They both have expansive knowledge and enthusiasm for hang gliding matched with their kindness and patience. I went with my son who learned quickly and Dan and Amy adjusted the lesson to cater to what we both needed. We are both hooked and look forward to continuing with Dan and Amy. Thank you for a great day!!!

I'm pushing 60 years old and consider myself fairly active and fit for my age but it was a good workout. To actually get some air time was very cool. Seriously considering taking it to the next level. it's very encouraging watching others in the advanced class take flight during our lesson.

What You'll Get


For $69, today's deal gets you a four-hour intro to hang gliding lesson (a $139 value) at Susquehanna Flight Park in Cooperstown. Classes take place starting on weekends in April beginning promptly at 9 a.m. Students should wear long pants and comfortable shoes.

Safely lofting flight-dreamers for more than three decades, USHPA-certified instructor Dan Guido facilitates wind-borne thrills over the green expanse of a 40-acre park. A four-hour lesson launches with an introductory film and ground school session. Next, students begin soaring at five feet while producing airplane noises from their mouths, soon taking to the five training hills for their six proper flights. If inclement weather interrupts a lesson, the remaining flights can take place on a later date within 30 days. Once they've sprinted off the precipice and felt themselves rise instead of plummet, gliders will catch beautiful views of a verdant, forested landscape as they take wing over the rolling flight park, accompanied by nothing but the quiet rush of empty air and the same herd of flying pigs that inspired the Wright brothers' early experiments.
