Thanks guys for a great way to pass some time, we both did the 5200' flight and the views were amazing. It was such a clear day, you could see to the other side of the bridge. Do Not Miss

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.

We went early in the season and they were still working out a few kinks with the tug plane, but I actually enjoyed seeing the mechanics of everything a bit more (and it was obvious that they really knew their stuff). Then of course it only heightened the anticipation of the actual flight, in which I (and my wife, who did her own) got to 'take the reins' for 5-10 minutes. Does this mean I'm a pilot now? The views are beautiful and the sensation is... well... like flying.

Don't be misled by the small size and tucked away facilities, these guys know what they're doing! Very professional when it comes to safety, yet easy going during wait times and flight. They'll take you up in the sky where you can look out over the fields and waters, and if you ask for it they can do amazing tricks and exciting descents. would definitely go again!
