We get a lot of calls from people asking if we fly year round. We do! In fact, the cooler air that comes with winter is more dense than the warmer air in the summer. What does that mean to our students? SImply put, it is easier to launch off of the ground in the cool, dense air, so this is a great time of year to get flying on the bunny hills! And, now through January 13 save $100 off of the Mountain, Eagle, or VIP Packages. Keep flying!
Jamie came to fly with us and LOVED her tandem. See what she has to say…http://52things52weeks.wordpress.com/2013/10/21/hang-gliding/

I will turn 60 in November of this year. Since my earliest memories I have dreamed of flying. You all made that life-long dream a reality. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
We arrived on Thursday, Oct. 17. It was around 5:30PM and the sky had several flyers for us to watch. We met Shawn and Jason who were digging a septic line in the yard of the cabin next to the Hummingbird House where we stayed. I rolled down the window and asked if I was supposed to check in somewhere. Shawn shouted, “You just did! Welcome! Make yourself at home.” Jason smiled and gave us a friendly wave. We knew it was home!!
Another Jason, Jason Anderson, was our teacher the next morning at the bunny hills. He was very patient, very helpful, and very informative. We had to cut the lessons a little because the wind was picking up. We invited Jason to lunch so we could quiz him about this hang gliding thing. Again, so helpful.
Friday afternoon I was on a tandem glider with Clifton. He patiently talked me through every detail. When we flew, he actually allowed me to practice what Jason had taught us in the morning class. When I didn’t do something exactly right, Clifton explained how to do it better and let me try again. I want these two guys to continue to teach me! We WILL be coming back!
The entire staff- the folks in the store, the man on the field who helped us sign in to fly, the folks on the phone, and the folks on the training field- all were happy, super friendly, and extremely helpful. LMFP is one awesome place.
Another factor that made it doubly great was that my oldest son came with me. He loved it, too. He has that same desire to fly.
I just had to tell you about my experience. Words can NEVER explain the emotions of a dream come true! What more can I say? THANK YOU!!! THANK YOU!!!
Karen came and took the Weekend Package with us and had a wonderful time. In the words of Karen,
“I just wanted to take a minute to thank everyone at lookout mountain. I had the most excellent trip I can remember ever going on. The accommodations were certainly good for the experience. I really want to praise Jason T. for the instruction on the beginner hill, and the TOTALLY AWESOME VIDEO TANDEM from August 5, 2013. I can not get enough of that video… SWEET!”
“Thanks, again, and see you in the spring of 2014. I can’t wait to come back and do it all over again!”
