    Fly High Hang Gliding
    Ellenville, NY 12428 (has several flight and training locations- see their website). Phone: (845) 744-3317.

    Book a tandem flight with a professional hang gliding instructor or take a lesson. All equipment and necessary items needed for the lessons are provided by Fly High during your lesson(s). Lessons start at 9:00 A.M. sharp, and will last roughly until 2:00-4:00 P.M., depending on class size and wind conditions. On day one we give you a (out at the hill) lecture on the basics you’ll need (theory, weather, safety & practical)…. after which you practice running with the glider on flat ground. After you master flat ground runs, you hang in a Hang Gliding simulator we have out at the hill, where you learn turns and speed control. The balance of the day is spent getting short , actual solo flights off of our training hill (about 100′ tall). By the end of the day…. you will know how to launch, fly & land a Hang Glider at the training hill! In certain wind conditions we may teach you to fly with a towing system, which works great and offers nice, long flights.
