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. We cater to thrill seekers and the not-so-thrilled alike. This is an exciting and memorable adventure for all. « less

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

Try this if you love to fly. Overlook Lake Tahoe and skim the wheat fields near Carson City. We took a tandem flight with the video. IT was pricey but worth it. A once in a lifetime experience with very professional/ instructor pilots. Do it.

He was able to accommodate us on short notice for a 7 o'clock ride and it was a great time. Two of us did back-to-back one hour rides and had a blast. You actually learn to pilot the aircraft. The scenery was spectacular. Fun time!

We were honeymooning in Lake Tahoe and I decided I had to do this. My husband isn't a fan of flying so he decided not to go, and I can say that he really missed out! This was such an amazing experience that I will remember for the rest of my life. Paul was very professional and made me feel... More

We booked a 1 hour Full standard flight for my wife and I with the "Fly Together" option. I am actually a very nervous flyer normally but Paul's excellent guidance made it an absolute pleasure to be in the air, it's hard to put into words the incredible feeling that you get the moment that you take off and realise...

What an amazing adrenaline rush!! On a whim I drove over from South Lake Tahoe on my vacation in August 2011 and this was definitely one of the best things I have ever done in all of my travels to the West Coast. If you are afraid of heights or flying, this is probably not for you but nothing can... More

This is a must while on vacation. It is a rush tassking off and then when you are floating above the lake, the view is like none other. I have been asked if I got wet aqnd the answer is no - easy up, easy ride, and easy down. If you get a chance - do it.
