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

“WHAT A RIDE!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2012

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.

“Kids had a great time!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2011

I wanted to give my son (15) and daughter (13) an experience that they would not forget and I think we did that with the powered hang glider ride/lesson over Lake Tahoe. They took off out of the Carson City airport, each on their own 45 minute ride. They flew over the mountains and over the edge of Lake Tahoe for some amazing views. Since it was a lesson Paul (the instructor) taught them a lot and allowed them to fly the hang glider at times as well. They were very excited and talkative about the experience. Thanks Paul, GREAT JOB!!

“The perfect way to see Lake Tahoe - A MUST!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2011

My hour flight around Lake Tahoe was one of the most relaxing and beautiful experiences of Tahoe. Paul is such a professional and you know you're in good hands.... just read his experience on the website. You will want to go again and again!

“SO MUCH FUN!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2011

My wife and I both took an hour flight in the ultra-lite and were both thrilled with the experience. We flew over sierra mountain passes, viewed mountain lakes completely hidden in high mountain valleys, and flew over secret waterfalls. The views were absolutely breathtaking. In the ultralite, you feel completely comfortable and immersed in the flying experience. Paul, the instructor, is a very experienced and competant pilot that made us feel very comfortable taking the flight.
My wife and I highly recommend both the experience. This should be on everyone's bucket list.
