Come join us for a tandem tow and enjoy a new high perspective from the air. This is a great way to experience hang gliding. First, a specialized tandem flight instructor will talk to you about what to expect of the flight to come. The two of you are then hooked in, side-by-side, into a tandem hang glider.
The hang glider is set up to safely take off and land on wheels so that no running is required. After you and the hang glider are hooked to a towline, the fun begins. You experience the glider being towed: rolling, rolling, lifting off and you take to the air with the instructor at the controls. After a few minutes of being attached to the tow line you will be well over 1000 feet above the ground and it’s time to be set free from tow. You are now gliding freely around the sky while taking in the awesome view from above. About this time, your instructor will let you try your hand at at flying the glider.
As you approach the ground, your instructor eases the hang glider back onto the ground and rolls to a stop (similar to the landing of a conventional aircraft). The typical flight duration is around 10 minutes or longer depending on conditions. People must be at least 18 years old to fly tandem at Tres Pinos. The weight limit is 200 lbs.
This is an experience you will never forget! This flight experience will help improve your flying dreams!
We can mount one of our cameras to the glider to take a video of you and your tandem flight high above the beautiful training area.
