Women’s Hang Gliding Festival Schedule of Events

Schedule of Events Some times may change and clinics will be added to the schedule, please be at orientation on Thursday night for any updates. If you plan to arrive earlier than Thursday or are staying after the Festival, our mountain launch, aerotow program, and training program will be available. Please keep in mind that many things require reservations and that all times are Eastern Standard Time. Our primary goal for pilots is to have flying tasks for each day of the festival. In the event of blown out conditions, we will be offering different clinics. Clinics will include: launching clinic, landing clinic, aerotow clinic, assisted windy cliff launch, and others.
