A great way to see the Eastern Shore from the air.

Locally owned and operated. Great equipment and instructors. Virginia Hang Gliding is a nice local attraction that is fun for children and adults.

Also, Bill has incredible knowledge of the history and geography of the region, and is a really fun guy! Plus, when he found out that we originally wanted... More

Up to 4000 ft on a beautiful sunny morning to see the patchwork patterns of tomato fields, sea and beach, marsh and creek. 20 minutes later we made a perfect... More

This was an amazing experience with friends! The people working here are super nice. The "roller coaster" option once in the air is a must do!

The 11:00 hang glider flight on Sunday morning was a birthday gift for our 18 year old daughter. It was just a fantastic experience for her and for us. Bill and Mark and the ground crew were knowledgable, friendly and provided our daughter the experience of a lifetime. It's great to spend time with people who love what they do.... More

We took our daughters hang gliding. They had a great time. Bill and Donny are so genuinely friendly. It was a great experience for them. The views were great. They were able to touch the clouds. Felt very comfortable with their experience.
