Quality hang gliding training since 1989

Hang gliding is the "flyingest" flying you can do!

Realize your dreams - finally man can fly - just like the birds! 

Doing a hang gliding course with Hangglidingschool.com is a unique experience. The location of the school is idyllic - Wilderness on the Cape Garden Route is one of the most popular flying tourist destinations in the country. Blessed with an abundance of sites, most of which is within 10-20 minutes drive, make Hangglidingschool.com unique. From our deck you can view 5 flying sites – all of which have been flyable on the same day! Our bunk-style accommodation lodge is nestled into the forest, (just to add to developing the bird-brain side of you! ;) And we have a pool table, braai facilities with a cosy rock pool for cooling off after a day’s flying. See more on accommodation.

Of course it is not just the accommodation but learning to fly in this scenic environment that makes your experience so worthwhile. Our courses are tailor made for your enjoyment and during your training we ensure that a holiday atmosphere prevails. Our basic daily routine starts off with a theory lecture, which is normally around 1 hour long.  After this we load flying gear and proceed to the training slope available for the day. These coastal dunes provide forgiving slopes for learning and the summer dependable sea breezes, easy wind conditions that ease your learning to fly a hang glider. We spend around 2-4 hours on the dunes, all dependent upon your eagerness (and fitness! ;) before returning for a late lunch (or early supper!) depending upon our days activities. At this stage you will be given free time – time to relax or go to town or enjoy the wonderful variety of Wilderness activities. Later on during the course we will fly for most of the day but our daily routine is flexible. For the most part we keep it balanced – flying and relaxing, to ensure you have the most accelerated and effective learning experience. Doing too much is most often counterproductive so we urge you to trust your Instructor who has been doing this for most of his life! :)
