With Truman Lake Air Sports' airborne activities, adrenaline junkies can soar over the titular lake in a powered paraglider or free fall from a plane. Powered paragliding allows adventurers to use a combination of wind and motor power, instead of strings attached to a flock of birds, to glide through the air. Truman Lake Air Sports pairs students with an instructor during tandem flights that last anywhere between 5 to 30 minutes. Instructors can also take skydivers out on tandem dives.
Boasting a combined resumé of 75 years of experience and more than 16,000 jumps, the members of Falcon Skydiving Team show off their aerial skills at exhibitions all over the states. They kicked off the US promotion of the latest Pokémon products with a whirling dive and perform as a highlight of the Richards-Gebaur air show. When not free-falling for audiences, they take up passengers with them and teach them the basics during tandem dives.
