Welcome to Hang Gliding Maui! At Hang Gliding Maui, we are dedicated to the preservation of the sport of Hang Gliding by offering powered hang gliding flights for the first time pilot as well as those with experience. We do this by offering interactive flight lessons using an Airborne XT 912. This micro-light aircraft features a hang gliding wing and weight shift operation, very much like a traditional hang glider, but powered by a reliable 912cc 4-cycle Rotax aircraft engine. The micro-light 'trike' (as this type of aircraft is known) provides the experience of hang gliding while also being capable of flying in a wider range of weather conditions. This aircraft also provides additional benefits in comfort and convenience and enables longer air time. For immediate assistance please call us at (808) 572 6557

About Byron Bay
Paragliding, Hang Gliding in Byron Bay Australia
Byron Bay is a former whaling station that is now a very popular holiday resort renowned for its magnificent surfing beaches. The lush and beautiful countryside surrounding the town was opened up by cedar-cutters in the late 1800s and is now devoted to dairying, cattle, pigs and tropical fruits. Paragliding, Hang Gliding in Byron Bay Australia The town is partly protected from the sea by Cape Byron, a rocky promontory 107m high and the continent's most easterly point. One of the most attractive and powerful lighthouses in Australia stands on the cape, beaming its light more than 40km out to sea. A walking trail leads to the tip of the cape, on the way visiting the lighthouse and providing fine coastal views. A ramp on the southern side of the cape is used by hang gliders who often soar overhead. Good views of humpback whales on their migration up the coast to Hervey Bay can be seen from the cape in July and on their return in September. Paragliding, Hang Gliding in Byron Bay Australia

Required Hang Gliding Skills
Steer by shifting your weight. Control your speed with the bar. That is all! What does it take to fly a hang glider ? If you had asked me that question before I started taking lessons 16 years ago, I probably would have answered “guts”, or something to that effect. My impression of what lessons would be like involved all kinds of bravery and superman inspired nobility, hard and rocky cliff ledges, and ego inspiring acts of fearless accomplishment. It's a good thing I was wrong, since if those things were required I never would have been able to earn my ratings. I have a very strong sense of self-preservation, and my big worry back then was that my reluctance to do something dangerous would hurt my progress. As it turns out, my reluctance to do something dangerous has aided in my flight career.

November 1, 2010 Register Login  Home  The "New" Point ... Home A chapter of the United States Hang Gliding Association The Utah Cup – this one’s for Ken - by Gerry Wingenbach
Hands up. Is there anybody who has never heard of Kitty Hawk and Wilbur and Orville Wright? They flew their experimental aircraft in 1903. Wilbur, who won the whose-going-to-be-the-pilot coin toss, pulled up too steep on the inaugural flight. The spruce-wood aircraft stalled and hit the ground. It was over in three seconds. But three days later, after repairs, modifications and repositioning the launching ramp to more level ground, Orville took the controls and with a 20-mile-per-hour headwind had an historic first flight lasting 12 seconds and traveling 120 feet. Nonetheless, not a bad start to a journey that some 66 years later would fly us to the moon. But what would the Wright brothers say if they met a modern-day paraglider? I’m guessing they’d ask, “How far can you fly?”. Which brings us to the Utah Cup, perhaps the most underrated, little known and hard to get award in this entire state. The Cup is given to the UHGPGA member who flies the longest flight of the year. You can land anywhere, but you must launch from Utah Up there, in the thin mountain air, cross-country pilots live in the arms of the mountains and the far-reaching sweep of green felt valleys and dun-colored desert that shakes off the heat and kicks up thermals. No helmet-mounted cameras here for that Facebook wall. No death-defying wingovers. Only well grounded, skilled and cerebral pilots working lift and thinking their way through the miles. This isn’t base-jumping. To fly a hundred miles in a gravity/human-powered aircraft is no small feat.

I All Activities I Group Activities I Store I Volunteer Hang Gliding. The mountains surrounding the Chattanooga area are ideal for hang gliding. The breathtaking views of the lush ridges and valleys and the gentle weather conditions of the Southeast make fantastic conditions for beginners and experts. Tandem hang gliding allows beginners to fly to high altitude with a certified instructor by their side. Tandem flights last about 15 minues and soar at 2,000 feet.
How it works:
The superb handling characteristics of modern hang gliders allow pilots to search for rising columns of air. These "thermals" can lift the hang gliders thousands of feet. Hang gliders have flown over 20,000 feet in altitude. The furthest recorded hang gliding flight is 438 miles.
A first-time tandem flight will generally start with a tow to 2,000 feet or higher by ultralight airplane.
Chattanooga boasts the largest hanggliding school in the country, Lookout Mountain Flight Park, and the Tennessee Tree Toppers hang gliding community in Sequatchie County, TN.

It is now possible for a person with no previous experience to take a high altitude hang gliding flight beside a qualified instructor after only 5 minutes of instruction.
Click here to follow a typical tandem flight. Using a special two person hang glider, we fly from Mt. Tamalpais, a state park located only 10 miles north of San Francisco, down to the north end of Stinson beach, almost 2 miles away! Whether your goal is to become a qualified hang glider pilot yourself, or merely to enjoy one of the best views California has to offer, taking an introductory tandem flight is the perfect way to go. Driving Instructions From Hwy 101 in Mill Valley, take the "Stinson Beach / Hwy 1" exit. Follow Shoreline Hwy and Hwy 1 about 1/2 mile to Tam Junction, where they will turn left at the traffic signal. Continue west on Hwy 1 for 2.7 miles. Then, look for the sign which directs you to turn right onto Panoramic Hwy for Stinson Beach and Mt Tam. About 0.8 miles up Panoramic, you will come to a wide intersection shaped like a crooked pitchfork. Select the middle fork to continue across on Panoramic. Follow Panoramic for another 4.4 miles to its highest point. On your left, you will see the Pantoll Ranger Station, and on the right will be Pantoll Rd. Ahead of you, the highway will begin dropping down to Stinson Beach and the landing zone.

Before a large crowd he readied himself to launch into the ocean breezes, excited by the fact that he could break the Wright Brothers' duration record of 9 minutes and 45 seconds set in 1911. Little did he realize that his historic attempt was taking place from a ridge that would be the future hang gliding flying site for our Annual Halloween Fly-In which began in 1974. This site had also played a significant role in American history in the year 1620. In 1620 the Mayflower left England filled with Pilgrims bound for the Virginias. The ship was blown off course by a vigorous storm and found shelter in the harbor of a peninsula shaped like a fishhook. This peninsula stretched out into the ocean 40 miles from mainland Massachusetts and was called Cape Cod. Finally, anchored in the safety of the harbor, the captain announced that the ship was damaged and would be unable to continue to the Virginias.
