Thank You!

First of all would like to thank the staff for all the help yesterday. Sometimes doing things when you are in a wheelchair seem almost impossible or to be a big hassel. But the guys on the ground made things very easy and I was very pleased with everyones help. The experience was amazing, Ronmade the flight something to remember. Thanks again I will definitely recomend your company to anyone I talk too, andI will be back.
thanks again,

Thank you for a great experience!

Hello All! We planned our July Chattanooga Vacation not sure if we wanted to try to Hang Gliding or not. I am so glad the family all decided to do it. It was the highlight of the vacation!! The kids still have not stopped talking about it! You have given us memories to last forever! I want to say THANK YOU to your staff and instructors for making it all happen! Plus the sense of humor the instructors have is priceless!!! I would highly recommend your business to all that inquire! And the pictures are a MUST to add on to the experience! Thank you so much again! We had an amazing time! Liz, Craig, Danielle and Alex, from Illinois!

Losing the Bet!

This past weekend, under ideal conditions at Lookout, Bjorn Nelson and I made a $5 bet on a cone landing. Betting against Bjorn is not normally a sound move and despite my best efforts to worm out of admitting defeat, these pictures (provided by my wife Nydia!!!!) serve as prima facie evidence that I did indeed lose the bet. What great fun!

Peter, The Author, Flies

Peter Cheney, the author of Hang Gliding for Beginner Pilots, and his family came down from Canada to fly with us. He picked a beautiful weekend. Plenty of high altitude gains and long flights. In fact, Stacy Murdoch outflew her husband (sorry Don) thermalling up to 3500 over launch yesterday. Nice flying Stacy!
