$165 for an Instructional Tandem Hang-Gliding Flight ($279 Value)

Before taking flight, novice fliers learn about procedures and how to steer a tandem glider. A Dragonfly plane then tows the instructor and pupil up to 2,500 feet above the earth, where gliders are released from tow ropes and soar for 15–20 minutes amid clouds, birds, and hopelessly lost fish. Customers may also purchase footage of their flight at a 25% discount (a $75 regular value).

Thermalriders LLC

A triangular form soars across blue skies and swoops over Texas's sprawling terrain. But the flying figure isn't a bird or a frustrated geometry student's homework—it's one of Thermalriders’ gliders, which let novices master the art of flying under the guidance of U.S. Hang Gliding and Paragliding Association-certified instructors. During aerotow flights, instructors and students can then break free from gravity's tight grip as Dragonfly planes tow them to heights of up to 2,500 feet. Thermalriders' instructors also have the ability to capture each flight on video.

Great experience

It was an amazing experience! Marc and Joel are awesome. I was more than a little nervous about sailing 2000 feet into the air attached to a kite, but they both were so calm, confident, and knowledgable, they made me feel at completely at ease. I can't wait to fly again!
