Patricia had a Great Time

We recently received the following note from the daughter of one of our Discovery Tandem co-pilots Patricia. Patricia flew with Rex, one of our awesome tandem pilots.

Happy Birthday and thanks for flying with us Patricia! So glad you had a great time!

Just a note to say THANK YOU – THANK YOU for an amazing dream come true for my Mom.

Sunday’s flight was an item marked of her “bucket list” and one day she will never forget!

Patricia turned 70 yesterday and has been Flying High ever since her tandem flight with Rex Sunday morning. Thank you all for your kindness, patience and for working with us to reschedule due to the weather. And extra thanks to Rex for bringing her down uninjured!!! We loved her “fly by” at the pavilion!

Wonderful staff, wonderful time!


Testimonial From Within the Biz

Loretta and Paul Hamilton, from Adventure Publications, received a request for information about learning to hang glide. The Hamiltons make amazing aviation films and training materials (including hang gliding, sport pilot aviation, and ultralight aviation materials), but they do not teach folks to hang glide so they forwarded the request on to us. Thank you Loretta and Paul for your continued support! The following is an email that we received from Loretta.

We always recommend Lookout Mountain Hang Gliding School: http://www.hanglide.com/. They have a great facility and everyone weve sent there has had a great time and received excellent instruction.

It is always better to travel for great instruction rather than stay local and suffer through bad instruction or no instruction. You can take a one week or two week vacation for total emersion and great value.

All the Best,
Loretta Hamilton
