Celebrating First Flight, Save $105

Stan A mountain launch
In commemoration of the 105th anniversary of the Wright Brother’s First Flight in Kitty Hawk, we’re having a special on all of our lesson packages that will teach you to fly. The Wright Brother’s didn’t start at high altitudes and neither will you. Using training hill classes and tandems with our world class instructors, we will teach you how to be the best, safest, and most well prepared hang glider pilots. And, until December 22, you will save $105 on the Mountain, Eagle and VIP Packages. You don’t have to start the training program by the 22nd. You just need to purchase the package by December 22. After that, all lesson packages are good for two years. Hang gliding is a beautiful, freeing, exhilerating, and fun sport. Join us in the sky! For more info, please call 1-800-688-5637. Also check outthe Flight Training section on our website.

A Beautiful Day, New Specials, and Flight Suits

It’s really turned into a beautiful day. The skies cleared up and the winds calmed enough to not be blown out,and to still be soarable. I’m looking out my window and can see half a dozen gliders in the sky. I’ve yet to mention some of our latest new pilots. Here they are…

I love this next photo. This is one of the first hang glider pilots I ever met, Stan from up north. He spent a couple of weeks down here this fall. It’s always nice to see the pilots I’ve known since I was introduced to this amazing sport.
Stan Stan on the Edge
I do have some awesome flight suits coming in. These are the flight suits that the tug pilots wear and they swear by them. Those guys can fly pretty fast, so the tug pilots liking the flight suits is a pretty sparkling recommendation. There’s only a limited number coming in, so please call the shop (1-800-688-5637) if you are interested in one. There can be a bit of a turn around time, so I’d like to get custom orders going for all interested pilots. Stay tuned for some great training specials to celebrate the 105th anniversary of the Wright Brothers’ first flight.
