How do I learn to hang glide?


 

All ground based schools use a method of self discovery for training. The instructor is there to guide you through the training process but you do all the flying by yourself. You start on flat ground and learn basic control of the glider and then slowly move up the slope, mastering each stage of the learning process before progressing to the next. This training process lasts from 10 to 14 days. Aero towing training is another advanced technique and uses a tandem glider allowing the instructor to fly with you. Normally you are towed to 2000ft above ground behind a micro light, from were you get the chance to pilot the hang glider under the guidance of your instructor. This is a more costly way of training - it helps those that are limited in running abilities.
