Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: FAA Flight Instructor Paul Hamilton offers powered hang gliding flights and tours above Lake Tahoe for the first time pilot as well as those with experience. This interactive flight lesson in an Apollo Trike is a great year-round outdoor activity. 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 looking for things to do in Lake Tahoe. This is an exciting and memorable Tahoe adventure for all.

“Breathtaking Fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2010

Although we scheduled late and could only have a short ride, we thoroughly enjoyed our experience. Paul is an extremely capable, qualified pilot and even though there was little equipment keeping us aloft, I felt safe every minute. He explained in detail what he was doing, even giving us the opportunity to steer under his guidance. He has a camera mounted to the glider enabling him to take several pictures in flight. I would definitely put this on top of my priorities for my next visit to the area, in order to secure a longer ride!
