The Introductory Experience is the best introduction to hang gliding. You will fly your first flights in a controlled environment, surfing the slope of our small hill, only about 5 to 10 feet off the ground. You will get five opportunities to fly from our small hill with a certified instructor guiding you step by step. After your morning session you will fly tandem with an instructor by your side to an altitude of 3,000 feet above beautiful Lookout Valley.
Because of your experience on the training hills, you will have more opportunity to pilot the glider during your tandem, and you will be more successful doing it! Mild exertion will be required. Ages 12 and up.
Our Introductory Experience Includes:
A fun, hands on intro to the basics of hang gliding safety, foot-launching and flying
Five opportunities to fly at our beautiful training hills
One instructional tandem to 1500'
Our tandem operation runs Thursday - Monday. After purchasing your package, please call 706-383-1292 to get your lessons booked. There is a 250 lbs. weight limit for tandem students with students over 230 pounds needing smooth weather conditions to fly. For students over 250 pounds, please call to discuss your training options.

Before purchasing, please take a moment to review our Guidelines and Policies.
Under Georgia law, there is no liability for an injury or death of an individual entering these premises if such injury or death results from the inherent risks of contracting COVID-19. You are assuming this risk by entering these premises.
Any person entering the premises waives all civil liability against this premises owner and operator for any injuries caused by the inherent risk associated with contracting COVID-19 at public gatherings, except for gross negligence, willful and wanton misconduct, reckless infliction of harm, or intentional infliction of harm, by the individual or entity of the premises.
Additionally, we are not liable if a customer does not receive email updates regarding your tandem or training packages. Please check your spam folder for potential missed communications.
PLEASE BE ADVISED OF THE FOLLOWING:
Once you have been informed of our policies and you have completed your purchase with us and we have processed your payment this will begin your contractual agreement with us.
We reserve the right, at our discretion, to change, modify, amend, add, or remove portions of our policies at any given time.
We are a family-owned business as well as a completely weather-dependent sport!
Because of these reasons, we do not offer a typical refund policy.
Another way to think of our activity: In the very same way of a commercial airline flight being canceled due to inclement weather, causing delays, potential cancelations, or a complete change of plan that will not be eligible for a typical (if any) refund policy, we, too, experience a very similar atmosphere and policy with our free-flight sport.
We follow all applicable rules and regulations outlined by the FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) for our sport.
INFORMATION TO KEEP IN MIND BEFORE BOOKING
If you are interested in a detailed list or explanation on what type of conditions and criteria are required for a flight to proceed, please call or email our helpful office staff who will be happy to discuss conditions with you!
FULL REFUND POLICY

OPTION 1: When you purchase directly through us, your ticket will be valid for TWO years to come use your tandem flights or packages purchased with us!
We offer this policy for company viability as well as to allow our customers who join us from all over the world to enjoy their package at their convenience.
Please be advised:
OPTION 2: Should you choose not to come back and fly with us within your two-year window, we do offer an 85% refund within 30 DAYS of your original purchase.
Please note: The 15% that is held goes directly toward covering all credit card fees and any other applicable fees lost associated directly with supporting the viability of our family-owned business as well as our beloved and hard-working staff members who work diligently to give our customers the best, most current information each and every day to the best of their ability. You will not be eligible to get this 85% refund until 48 hours after your scheduled flight.
Tickets are also fully transferrable which means: No matter whose name is on the ticket you can gift them or sell them yourself; if you wish to do so or you are unable to use the ticket yourself.
All transfers will need to be handled by the owner of the original ticket and will require a phone call to our office in order to change the name of the participant.
We will not participate in helping you sell your ticket, and all personal transactions will need to be made through the original ticket holder and the new purchaser.
All of these required policies and procedures will be fully mentioned and outlined to you at time of purchase in-person and with over-the-phone purchases.
Should you choose to purchase directly through our website, you will, also, be advised of these policies in our agreement portion of checkout which must be "marked as read" in order to proceed. If you choose to purchase online, the short version of our policy will be displayed a total of (3) times on the final check-out page.
If you are paying to book for someone other than yourself: All policies will still apply for the said party partaking in the activity once you have agreed to the terms of service for them. As the purchaser, you have agreed to the Terms of Service directly associated with the booking and all terms will stand for the passenger/guest who is scheduled to fly with us.
If someone who is not flying purchases for you: All terms and policies will apply to each individual that is flying with us or has paid with us once the purchaser has acknowledged the agreement for you.
If you do not agree to the terms through our online booking system, you will be unable to process your payment online through our booking software until you have clicked that you agree.
From this point, after your purchase, you will void your option for a standard, full refund under this policy.
We are not responsible for any person(s) using any of our services or making a purchase in a way that breaks the law or any person(s) who misconstrues the final Terms of Service and Agreement that has been outlined to them.
WEIGHT LIMIT AND OUR POLICY
If you are over our weight limit of 250lbs, all above, standard policies will apply to you with the following exception:
When you come for your first scheduled flight: If you are over our weight limit, we know this can be a disappointing experience. Because of this, we will offer you a one-time refund if you are physically unable to fly with us due to weight or health issues and you believe, to the best of your ability, that you will never be able to complete your flight.
We will encourage you to reschedule and opt for our (2) year policy if you believe, to the best of your ability, that you are able to return at a later date and fly with us when weight limit requirements can be met.
This full refund will be offered to you one time. This option will only be offered to you if you are over the weight limit and it is your very first time meeting with us for your flight.
If you are not over the weight limit on the first date of your flight, this policy does not apply to you.
If you are offered this option:
We reserve the right to void this weight limit policy if it is not directly offered to you or if it is violated, taken advantage of, or misconstrued by anyone in the party.
We reserve the right to void or change any and all policies and terms if it is not directly offered to you or if it is violated, taken advantage of, or misconstrued by anyone in the party.
We cannot be held responsible or liable if any or all Policy or Terms and Conditions are not read or listened to during the initial purchase period or the purchaser has failed to consult the party member flying about the Policies or Terms and Conditions.
