Learn how to fly a hang glider in San Diego and how to master the art of flying a weight shift aircraft.
Learning to hang glide has its risk. Any activity in which you are in motion where there are objects to run into is hazardous. A hang glider flies at a minimum speed of about 20 miles per hour. It is possible to get injured or killed hang gliding. Otto Lilienthal was fatally injured during his experimentation.
We understand a great deal more about flying and flight safety today than the flyers in the infancy of aviation 110 years ago. The hang gliding teaching methods of today are vastly improved over just 25 years ago largely by result of U.S. Hang Gliding & Paraglidng Association programs.
