About Hang Gliding

Hang gliding is an air sport in which a pilot flies an unpowered and light foot-launchable glider aircraft known as a hang glider. Most modern hang gliders are made of an aluminum -or composite- framed fabric wing which lacks moving control surfaces. The pilot is mounted on a harness hanging from the airframe and exercises control by shifting his body weight.

Although it started out as simply gliding down small hills on low performance manned kites, hang glider technology has evolved the ability to soar for hours, gain thousands of feet of altitude in thermal updrafts, perform aerobatics, and fly cross country over large distances.
Here we describe all about hang gliding to pull in those thousands of students a year we expect to get.
