“Bucket List”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2011

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 my dad and he also had a fantastic time. Alex was great with us both. Thanks Alex for a wonderful experience. I couldn't have been more impressed!!!!

“Don't miss out on this amazing experience!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2011

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 air within seconds. The flight was very easy and comfortable and I was given the option of doing some acrobatics in the air. It was so thrilling and Alex is a very talented pilot making it seem so easy. The landing was easy as well. Hang gliding was incredibly fun and exciting and i would go fly again anytime! Alex was extremely knowlegable and very talented which made it an even better experience. I would suggest to anyone to go hang gliding and experience this amazing thrill!

“If you do one thing in Reno, make this it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2011

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 life! If you want a real thrill, hang gliding might be just what you are looking for!

“WOW!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2011

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.
