I booked the mile high flight. The weather was ideal. Glad I booked the higher altitude. The view was much nicer and the flight lasted longer. I enjoyed the acrobatic and gliding lessons. I had a great time and can't wait to do it again.

My boyfriend and I drove out 4 hours from D.C. for this experience and it was everything (more) than we hoped for. They confirmed our reservation by calling prior to our drive out, and promptly set us with instructions and safety gear upon our arrival. This was definitely a bucket list item for my boyfriend, whereas I was a bit more apprehensive for a slight fear of heights. Don, Dallas, and our pilot were so professional and communicative that I really felt instantly safe and at ease. I will never forget this experience and am so grateful to the Virginia Hang Gliding Team for making it so memorable and positive. Would give 10 stars if the limit wasn’t 5.

I booked this experience for my 20-year-old daughter. From the moment I called to ask questions to the very end of her hang gliding session, every step was handled with courtesy and professionalism. We drove out there in the morning and Donnie met us at the hanger and he put her right at ease for her flight into the sky at 3500 feet. Jim the tug pilot was great as well, answering all of our questions. When she landed her smile told us all we needed to know. She had a blast and wants to do it again. Without hesitation, I would suggest you take the time to go for a flight with Donnie and Jim.

This was my gift to my wife for our 27th anniversary. We just moved here last fall from Kansas. Hang gliding was one of the things she always thought of trying. It was on my bucket list forever, but I became disabled. Now I am happy for her. I bought her the flight and the go-pro option so she would have a recording of the flight. I recommend that very strongly. She has reviewed it several times and she smiles every time. For us being local I can see this as a regular treat for her, and when I suggested this, she was very excited. She feels free up there. If you are visiting the shore on vacation, this is one of the 'must' things to do. I know you can go parasailing at Ocean City, but they aren't going to take you up thousands of feet for fifteen or twenty minutes so you can soar like an eagle. This is what you do when your dream has been to fly in the sky above it all. The staff is extremely nice and professional. They may delay your reservation due to weather, but that is exactly what you want to know about them. They are safe and they know the flying conditions better than anyone. The pilot of the tandem hang glider was talented. In fact, he told my wife that is all he does. He travels back and forth to locations depending on the seasons, but all he does is fly. You can't get much more experienced in all circumstances than that. Visit the shore and have something special for your vacation. If you are local, this is a hidden treasure right here. I can't recommend it enough and only wish I could participate. But I will settle for seeing my wife so happy.
