Tandem Introductory Flights

The best way to experience the thrill of pure flight! The way it was meant to be. Tandem flights are our first step toward learning the art of hang gliding. Get hands-on flying experience, safely hanging along side an advanced, certified tandem instructor. Flight duration is approximately 20 – 30 minutes. Choose between a foot launched soaring flight or a 3000 ft high altitude aero-towed flight. You can also capture your flying experience and show your friends with an in-flight video! While flying in and around the Newcastle area, we use a number of different flying sites. From coastal ridges to the inland mountains of the Watagan National Forest.

Tandem Flights $185
In-flight Video $75
