Hang gliding involves a pilot flying a light, non-motorized aircraft called a glider through the air, riding updrafts and air currents to maintain flight for as long as possible or desired. Most hang gliders are made from aluminum or some sort of composite-frame, with a fabric delta wing above and around it. The pilot hangs beneath the glider, suspended in a harness rack, and steers the aircraft through risers held in each hand. The late 19th Century is the true beginning of the history of hang gliding, when new advances in construction led to the first somewhat consistent hang glider platforms being built. As the decades passed, continuing advances in safety and materials has led to more efficient, and typically lighter, gliders which offer a much greater degree of control to the pilot.

Though piloting a glider does not require any sort of special license, hang gliding lessons are critical. Preparing for a glide means choosing the right launch point, keeping in mind weather, wind conditions, updraft locations, and the nearby geographical layout. Glider pilots need to know how the terrain flows, as well as where such things as buildings and power poles are located. Thus, an attention to detail and willingness to learn the lay of the land are critical skills for a glider pilot to have. Obviously, a comfort with heights is essential, as is the ability to learn the proper techniques for both handling a glider and preparing for a launch. Patience is an absolute necessity for anyone wanting to learn how to hang glide.

All types of hang gliding lessons are offered through ClassClassifieds, including children’s hang gliding lessons, women’s hang gliding lessons, and men’s hang gliding lessons.

Another great way to learn hang gliding is by joining a hang gliding club or by attending a hang gliding camp (perhaps a hang gliding summer camp?), which you can find on ClassClassifieds.

Hang gliding classes offered through teachers on ClassClassifieds are typically with a private hang gliding instructor or at a hang gliding school, although online hang gliding classes may also be available. What are you waiting for? Take a hang gliding class and learn how to hang glide today!
