There is nothing like it…and it’s the closest you can get to flying like a bird.
Tandem hang gliding is one of the most exciting activities available on the Outer Banks. With a certified instructor, you can fly to altitudes of 2000ft or higher at the Kitty Hawk Kites Flight Park located at the Cotton Gin in Jarvisburg, NC. The views of Currituck Sound, the ocean, and the surrounding countryside are breathtaking from these altitudes.
Once released from the tow plane, the only sounds are from you, the instructor, and the wind flowing around you. These elements, combined with stalls, dives, and turns are sure to make tandem hang gliding the most exciting and memorable experience on the Outer Banks.
In tandem hang gliding, the student and instructor are hooked into the glider together. The glider is designed specifically for tandem flights with a larger wing area for more lift and tricycle landing gear to simplify takeoffs and landings. An ultralight plane tows you to altitude, the glider is released, then you and your instructor glide back to the airport where you land like a plane.
There is no prior hang gliding experience necessary for a tandem hang gliding flight with Kitty Hawk Kites. You can reserve your spot for 2021 now.
