I thought that the staff was more than accommodating, very friendly and informative. My friend that joined me on the adventure became ill during the flight and the instructor handled it very well. He did his best to make her feel like she wasn't the first to ever have that happen and that she shouldn't feel ashamed. He encouraged her try again in the future.

Our experience was an enjoyable one filled with fun and excitement. The drive was horrendously long just to really be there for 45 minutes. Staff was very friendly. Price, eh...could.be lowered (from original pricing).

What You'll Get


Man was never meant to fly, as exemplified by his lack of wings, flexible skeleton, and penchant for bathing in cement. Defy nature with today’s Groupon: for $89, you get a tandem sky ride from Tampa Hang Gliding, located at The Florida Ridge Air Sports Park in Clewiston (a $179 value).

For more than 25 years, Tampa Hang Gliding has trained wind-bound wannabes in the aerial arts. The Pilot tandem sky ride commences after 30 minutes of terra-firma-planted training, during which students will learn the basics of how to operate their glider. Next, fliers launch 2,500 feet into the South Florida skies under the wing of a USHGA-certified instructor, watching carefully as he guides them through proper flying technique and offers helpful tips, such as how to spot a traffic cop hiding behind a cloud. The instructor then relinquishes control, allowing new aviators to get in some hands-on atmosphere explorations as they finally discover what it's like to live life as a giant man-bird. Rides take place Friday–Monday from sunrise to sunset, and customers can tote home full video and photo documentation of their sojourn into weightlessness for an additional fee (not covered by today's Groupon).

If, at a future date, Groupon holders decide to enroll in Tampa Hang Gliding's full pilot-training program, which aims to teach students how to launch and fly a glider without assistance, the full value of today's Groupon will be deducted from the $1,695 program fee.
