Question: I'm interested in buying this as a gift for my Husband who has always wanted to fly a hang glider. I didn't see in the description that the Hang Gliding Lesson in Virginia was a tandem flight. Don't beginners have to fly tandem for the first time?

Answer: No, this is not a tandem flight. Participants will begin with ground school followed by foot launch flights which consist of running down a shallow hill over grassy terrain which helps to launch the glider off of the ground.

Question: My friends and I have requested a reservation to go hang gliding. What do I need to bring along?

Answer: All of the equipment will be provided for the lesson. Participants should make sure that they wear long pants and running shoes. They should also remember to bring sunglasses, sunscreen, snacks and water. A camera is also highly recommended! Additional suggestions include a change of shoes and socks for the ride home.
