About Hang Gliding Tahoe
You love Lake Tahoe, and you're looking for an outdoor activity with new sights it has to offer. Well, you ain’t seen nothing yet ... not until you’ve seen it from the air, piloting your own aircraft over the Carson Range and into the Tahoe Basin. With Hang Gliding Tahoe, you fly a powered hang glider with an instructor along for the ride (the flight can even count for training toward a pilot’s license!) and enjoy the sight of the lake from an entirely new perspective. Morning flights offer spectacular year-round viewing conditions, and you can schedule sessions ranging from one hour clear on up to three hours. Make it an extra-special event and fly as a couple or with a friend, each in your own aircraft, and don’t forget to sign up for the photo or video service for a souvenir of the flight that you will treasure forever.

My hubby & I were vacationing in South Lake Tahoe and we wanted to do something special to help remind us of our trip here. My hubby saw an ad on TA and we had picked up a activity flyer in town on a power hang gliding flight. My hubby is 6’6 so he called Paul and was assured he could fit. I was a little scared since I tend to be a very cautious person who gets nervous driving over bridges and heights. 😉. My hubby went first and the smile on his face when he came back was awesome to see. He said it was really cool and he loved it. He helped fly and steer and enjoyed the lesson Paul gave. It was my turn. I felt very comfortable sitting behind Paul. I was a little nervous at first while we were climbing higher and higher to get over the mountains. We reached over 10,000 feet. The view is awesome. I started to relax and enjoyed the flight. It’s really beautiful. I did not help steer or help with the flight due to just being happy listening to Paul and enjoying the sights. To us, this is a trip of a life time. We bought the photos too but no pressure.

There aren't enough words to explain how amazing this excursion was! I have never seen anything like it before and would recommend it to anyone that has an adventurous spirit. Paul was absolutely fantastic in taking me up in this motorcycle with wings. The views were breathtaking...flying over the lake at 10,000 feet. I always felt safe and even loved some of the more daring moments of our flight. This definitely was an adventure like no other. A little pricey but worth every penny! Thanks so much Paul!!!!

Melissa G, it was great flying with you above Lake Tahoe. I really appreciated being a part of your Tahoe adventure. Come back a fly with me any time. I can highly recommend flying during the Winter time for another magical view of the Lake.

Had no idea what this was going to be like but I must say this was so much better than I imagined. Paul was a great pilot/instructor - I was allowed to 'steer' (my first official flight lesson), and saw some beautiful sights. Without hesitation, I would do this again in a heartbeat.

These guys are pros. It's been 2 years since I have taken my ride and I still look back at it as one of the greatest things I have ever done. If you are sitting on the fence, get off! You won't regret it!

Thrill seekers need to do this. It was over the top fun for our group. We were able to talk to each other over microphones as we soared above the mountains. One moment of panic in mid air on my behalf, but it added to the thrill. Such a beautiful way to experience the earth below!!
