Question: I'm interested in learning 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. You'll begin with ground school and then your first flights consist of running down a shallow hill over grassy terrain and fly just a few feet over the ground.

Question: Is there free parking available near our launch spot?

Answer: Yes, when you confirm your reservation for your beginner hang gliding lesson you'll receive directions to the launch fields. Parking is after the last hanger. Once there look to your right and you'll see the hang gliders. Don't be intimidated, those are for you!

Question: I live in Virginia and want to take the hang gliding class but I'm caught up with the fear of taking the initial leap. How high is the takeoff and how high will I go?

Answer: The best part of the Hang Gliding Lesson is Richmond is that you don't have to leap off a huge cliff to get started, and therefore do not have to fly tandem. You'll takeoff by running down a gentle slope and soar to a whopping 3 to 5 feet! Even though you're a safe distance from the ground you can still expect to float over the distance of a football field or more.

Question: Is there a minimum weight to hang glide?

Answer: Yes, in order to participate in the Hang Gliding Lesson over Richmond you must weight at least 100lbs.

Question: What do I need to bring to my hang gliding lesson?

Answer: All of your equipment will be provided. The Hang Gliding School recommends wearing long pants and running shoes and bringing a change of shoes and socks for the ride home (you'll be running and walking across a huge grassy field. If you've ever played soccer you know that even on dry fields if feels great to change out of your socks and shoes at the end of the day). You'll also want to bring sunglasses, sunscreen, snacks and water. A camera is highly recommended.
