A half hour of video and ground school preps budding aerialists for a hands-on lesson in hang-gliding in which an instructor and trainee coast on the wind over 1,500 feet above the southern Florida countryside. While mid-flight, the instructor hands over the hang glider’s controls to the pupil, which allows the student to test out steering skills as the instructor catches up on yesterday’s crossword puzzle.<p>

About Hang Gliding
