A 30-minute video and ground-school session prep budding aerialists for a hands-on lesson in hang-gliding in which an instructor and trainee coast on the wind at heights of more than 1,500 feet—which is higher than the Empire State Building. While midflight, 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.

Hang Gliding

Located on 50 acres of land in Clewiston, The Florida Ridge Air Sports Park gives guests unlimited opportunities to indulge in airborne activities. Winds from the Atlantic Ocean and Gulf Coast converge to create favorable soaring conditions for hang-gliding, paragliding, and controlled umbrella flights. The park also offers pilot-training programs and equipment rentals for expert windsurfers.

Customer Reviews

We had a great time. The people were friendly and knowledgeable. We ended up spending A LOT more money than the Groupon to get a great flight experience but it was worth it. Definitely want to do it again!!!
