We have moved, but we haven't changed!

Our shop is no longer in Milpitas. We have moved the majority of our inventory to our training site in Tres Pinos, and our business operations are now in Fremont.

We are still available to meet all your hang gliding needs ... all your hang gliding desires.

We still teach every weekend and sometimes during the week, we still service hang gliders and hang gliding equipment, and we still have a large inventory of gliders, harnesses, helmets, parachutes, and other hang gliding parts.

Contact us by phone or by email. We'd love to hear from you.

What makes Tres Pinos such a great training site?

What makes Tres Pinos such a great training site?

The wind is perfect for teaching hang gliding, that’s what! Tres Pinos is situated in a valley where the air is smooth with consistent, light winds that funnel straight up through the valley and curve up and over the gradual sloping training hills. Our training site has a landing area that is a mile long and half a mile wide.
