FAA Flight Instructor Paul Hamilton offers powered hang gliding flights for the first time pilot as well as those with experience. Take an interactive flight lesson in an Apollo Trike. This FAA certified light-sport aircraft features a modern hang gliding wing, very much like a traditional hang glider, but powered by a reliable Rotax aircraft engine.

Flew with Paul a few weeks ago on a family trip. As an airline pilot, I was really looking forward to this different way of flying. I was excited with a mix of nervousness as this was really unfamiliar territory for me. That all went away before we turned the aircraft on to be honest. They way Paul, explained everything... More

Eduardo, It was great to fly with you...especially since you're already a pilot. Look forward to flying with you again when you're in the Lake Tahoe area again. More

First & foremost, Paul (the pilot & guide), was extremely professional, friendly and safe. He made sure to explain any procedural moves in the air to put my mind at ease. The flight and views were incredible, and actually piloting the craft, although scary at times, was very fun. Highly recommended!

For my 50th birthday, I wanted to do something extraordinary, and I am so excited to say that Hang Gliding Tahoe was the most exhilarating experience I have had! Paul Hamilton is an excellent instructor and communicated every aspect in a calm and professional manner. There are no words to fully express the feelings you have while flying in the... More

My husband and adult son went to Hang Gliding Tahoe for my husband's 60th birthday. We called the day before as we were traveling in the winter and were not sure of the weather. It was cold that day, but they both stayed warm in the heated boots and gloves. My son enjoyed going high enough to see Lake Tahoe... More

Surprised my son with this during a college visit to UNR and he had an excellent time! It was thrilling and beautiful! Paul was informative and knowledgeable. He flew in January, so weather was a concern, but he had a perfectly clear, sunny morning. He was warm in the provided fly suit and was able to see the snow capped... More

One of the best rides I have ever had! I love being in the sky - I am a student pilot, I have done sky diving, paragliding, sailplane rides and this flight with Paul did not disappoint. First Paul is a skilled, knowledgeable pilot that really loves flying and sharing that passion with others. Second, what is not to love... More

This was one of the most amazing experiences I have ever had. I have never written a review before, but will try to describe how incredible this flight was if it is even possible. I was very nervous to do this at all. It is not something I would typically do but I wanted to explore new things and do... More

I'll start with the good parts and state my complaints towards the second half of this review. I gave the instructor (Paul) very short notice (24 hours) that I wanted to fly, so his willingness to fit me into his busy schedule gave me a good first impression of the company. (Or maybe he just really wanted my money, but... More

My best friend and I go on adventures that neither of our partners would venture into; e.g., 15 days on Colorado River in the Grand Canyon etc. We had tried to hang glide near San Francisco (not enough wind) and in Southern Cal (too much). Then found this - a fantastic deal; we took the tandem flight with Paul and... More

My check-it-off-our-bucket-list buddy and I got the tandem package and went flying with Paul and Bob the morning after the season's first snowfall. Bracing and beautiful beyond words. The wheeled, winged and propelled lawn chair approach to hang gliding is MUCH better than the jump off a cliff version. Got up high over the mountains and lake and dropped low... More
