We are so enthusiastic to be the first hang gliding school using "The Easy Flyer" hang gliding instructional system. Wills Wing Inc., the largest hang gliding manufacturer in the world, partnered with Mission Soaring Center to introduce this revolutionary hang glider for teaching.
What is ther East Flyer?
The Easy Flyer introduces people to hang gliding in the most effective way - it's intuitive, easy and fun. This specially designed hang glider on wheels, alllows the pilot to roll into the air for takeoff and roll in for landing. The pilot sits comfortably in a seated harness and controls the glider in an upright, natural position.
How is it better?
This glider simplifies the learning process by focusing on flying skills. Learning to fly and control the glider first - allowing the student to experience the exhilaration of flying with easy rolling launches and landings - then foot launch launch and landing skills are more easily learned.
Students skim the ground with ease and confidence, often flying over a hundred feet. The Easy Flyer is a huge success.
Students transition to flying a regular hang glider, learn to foot-launch (landing skills and soon fly up to altitudes using the flyings skills they first learned on the Easy Flyer.
It's all good and, with the Easy Flyer, it's all better!
