My teenage son and I had the great fortune of catching Zac Majors in town and available for tandem flights through this company. He is a top instructor and have us the confidence we needed to give this a try. We'll never forget this bucket list item, it was awesome.

Alex really impressed me with his knowledge and committement to safety. The area that you jump from is gorgeous! You would be amiss to go to Reno and not call them up to go hang gliding! It is an adventure you won't forget!

Bought this tandem flight for my husbands birthday and could not have been happier. He was thrilled, everyone was very professional and they put my mind at ease when I saw just how high the cliff was that my husband would be running off! Everything went as good as it can be. We hesitated to buy the video and pictures... More

At the end of last ski season, my 14 year old daughter and I were coming down from Slide Bowl at Mt Rose and we saw hang glider pilots setting up to fly off the side of the mountain. We stopped to watch and she immediately said "Daddy - we HAVE to do that!"... So we did. I contacted Alex... More

love the river walk. Much to see. Great places to eat in and around the walk. Pretty good people watching as well.

Whether this is on your bucket list or not, it is a must do for the adventurist. While it may feel overwhelming and/or too scary (hense the appeal), Alex is someone who instills a calming confidence to the intrapersonal storm of fear and excitement that challenges our passion to experience new things. I felt completely safe with Alex. I brought... More

I had such a great time hang gliding! Alex was very helpful, professional, friendly and made the experience really fun. It starts out exciting right away when you run with Alex off the hill. Seems scary, but it is actually really easy. It is way better if you do run, and it doesn't even seem like anything being in the... More

I decided to try out the tandem hang gliding on a whim, couldn't have been happier I did. Hang gliding itself is an absolutely incredible experience and you have to at least try it once. Alex and his crew are awesome, relaxed, fun and they know what they are doing! One of the best things I have done in my... More

Had a great flight with Alex today. Excellent views, instruction, and set up. MIssed the lessons, but I'll be back to get them later this summer. Alex and Jeff were friendly, accomodating, easy to talk with, and the flight was amazing! Beautiful morning, mountains in the background, and soaring like a bird. What a memory. Thanks. Scott

My teenage son and I went to Reno for the Summer Nationals Fencing Championships and while there were looking for some exciting things to do. We could not have done any better than with Alex and Jeff and Thermal Sky Sports. I called one day, and had an appointment for the next morning. Weather and wind cooperated beautifully and the...
