Trike flying sounds like a sport from a toddler’s daydream, but it’s actually an alternate name for powered hang gliding, Hang Glide USA’s specialty. The company’s gliders are outfitted with engines but can also fly with their engines off, riding wind currents over Amelia Island’s scenic beaches on the Atlantic Ocean. Wind ruffles passengers’ hair, thanks to the gliders’ open-air cockpits. And though they can try their hand at the controls, passengers are always accompanied by one of the company’s instructors. Every instructor has a perfect safety record and teaches passengers flying basics during airborne rides.
The seasoned jumpers on staff at Skydive Amelia Island have all successfully completed thousands of jumps. The dedicated professionals securely strap themselves to beginning skydivers and plunge from a plane to enter a freefall of up to 120 miles per hour. These experienced skydivers hope their enthusiasm for diving is catching, as one of them says: “The falling is so exhilarating, I just wanted to keep on doing it”.

The FAA-certified flight instructors at Pilot Jacksonville take new recruits and mold them into bold and courageous masters of the skies. While this might not be
every student's goal for flying, all of them nevertheless begin their aerial adventure with a Discovery Flight alongside one of these experienced instructors. A pre-flight briefing reviews safety and answers questions, before student and teacher clamber aboard the small aircraft for up to 30 minutes of pretending to be a flying squirrel. All pupils will get to control the aircraft for a few minutes while airborne, and all receive a flight certificate once they've landed back on the ground and rediscovered their sea-level legs. Furthermore, if students choose to continue their studies, they can count their hours toward an actual Pilot's License.
The Sea & Sky Krucker Cygnet, the aircraft of choice at Duckwing Triking, may resemble a hang-glider with a motor, but a flight in it is more than just gliding about in the breeze. Called a "trike" because of its three wheels, it's an amphibious vehicle, meaning it can take off from land or water and it hatches from aquatic larva instead of being made in a factory. The pilots at Duckwing love teaching others about this unusual craft, which is why every flight is a lesson instead of just a ride-along. Passengers get a chance to take the controls and soar above the Gulf of Mexico, and St. Joseph Sound.
