    Imagine soaring like a ha­wk thousands of feet above the ground. Although the air is somewhat chilly, the view is tremendous and the solitude is relaxing. You search for­ updrafts of air to keep you aloft so that you can enjoy this feeling for hours. This is the experience of hang gliding. The hang glider's wing, called a delta wing or Rogallo wing , is an outgrowth of NASA engineer Francis Rogallo's research on kites and parachutes in the 1960s. Rogallo ­had proposed the wing as a method of returning spacecraft to Earth. The delta-wing parachute was lightweight, durable and highly maneuverable. Later, John Dickenson, Bill Moyes, Bill Bennett and Richard Miller developed the Rogallo wing into the modern hang glider and launched an immensely popular sport shared by millions of people worldwide.

    Hang Gliding FAQs on Getting Started
    Questions you may have about getting started Hang Gliding:
  • What is hang gliding, what is a hang glider? Is hang gliding the same as parasailing, parachuting? How is hang gliding different from paragliding? What can you do with a hang glider? ... What should you look for when signing up for a lesson?
  • What is hang gliding, what is a hang glider?
    Hang gliding is one of the simplest forms of human flight. A hang glider is a non-motorized, foot-launched wing. A Hang glider has a rigid frame maintaining the shape of the wing, with the pilot usually flying in a prone position. The hang glider wing is constructed of rip-stop nylon or mylar over an aluminum frame. Hang gliders are controlled by shifting the pilot's weight with respect to the glider. Pilots are suspended from a strap connected to the glider's frame (hence the name "hang" glider). By moving forward and backward and side to side at the end of this strap, the pilot alters the center of gravity of the glider. This then causes the glider to pitch or roll in the direction of the pilot's motion and thus allows both speed control and turning. With a hang glider, you can fly like a bird, soaring upwards on currents of air. Hang gliders routinely stay aloft for 3 hours or more, climb to elevations of 15,000', and go cross-country for vast distances.

    Hang Gliding
    Floating through the skies on currents of air is the realization of an age old dream. Those with the skills to pilot hang gliders can now say they fly like the birds. One of the best places to fly like a bird is right here in Idaho. There are few places with more ideal conditions for soaring than King Mountain at the southern end of the Lost River Range. It’s is one of the nation’s premiere hang gliding sites. For a dozen years pilots from around country have been gathering in Moore, Idaho for the King Mountain Hang Gliding Championships. Lisa Tate is the meet director. It’s actually the largest foot launched hang gliding event in the United States and they come to this little town of Moore, Idaho just to fly this great scenery and these mountains. The flying conditions here are just really conducive to great soaring and long flights of great distances but there’s also spectacular scenery. This place is just incredibly beautiful flying.
    Lisa Tate Heather Stoddard is one of the few female pilots with the skills to take on a location as challenging as King Mountain. Here pilots reach elevations of ten to twenty thousand feet and higher and cover distances of over a hundred miles. This sport is not for the faint of heart but for Heather it is exhilarating.
