I was nervous about doing this up until I met with Thomas and his crew. They put me at ease instantly and I was able to enjoy an absolutely incredible experience that everyone should do.

An experience of a lifetime... Thomas was great, very professional and would fly with him any day. Great time!

On a slightly overcast day, Thomas took me on a 20 minute experience when the foliage was 1 week past peak. It was far less frightening to do than to watch, even though I fear heights. The instructor was professional and reassuring, and I would highly recommend others to him. Unlike anything I've done before, in a good way!

Tom at Hangar3 was not only charming, good-looking, fun and assuring while we flew, he also worked the camera! Awesome experience!

This adventure was delayed from its original booking because of weather. The company made sure that the rebooking and the day of the trip itself was handled in the best way, with professionalism, interest and humor. I would tell anyone to definitely take advantage of this truly beautiful experience. And, if you're into a little more excitement, then let the pilot take you for some dips and bankings (I did without hesitation, and it was fantastic). Thank you for one of my best adventures ever.

The experience was very exciting and definitely worthwhile. However, the safety precautions were never explained before hand, making me very ill at ease throughout the entire experience. Additionally, the dvd's we paid for were poorly made. One in fact does not even show a video, but instead has 4 random snapshots, while my boyfriends dvd ends and cuts off before landing. I tried contacting the venue in regards to this situation, but so far no one has picked up the phone. I will continue to contact them. The people working there were all very friendly and enthusiastic about hang gliding. They even helped us with driving directions, because we had gotten quite lost on the way over. Overall, it was a good experience. I just wish I had a dvd that worked to show my friends and family.

The experience was thrilling, however, the run was shorter than what was expected due to wind condition. Paid the full amount of money for a full run and didn't receive that, this was a bit disappointing.
