Tandem Hang Gliding in Devon
Fly Like a Bird over the stunning scenery of the North Devon coastline. After a full briefing and an informative talk about the sport, the instructor introduces the glider (a Wills Wing Falcon 3 Tandem), specifically designed for tandem flight. Once secured in the harness together with the instructor, take a traditional hill launch to go skyward and reach up to heights between 600 and 1200 feet above the ground, keeping the company of birds and being free to soar and circle lazily in the thermal currents above land and sea below, with incredible views in peaceful surroundings. Enjoy the thrill of landing followed by a full debrief. Two weeks on, receive a 5'' x 7'' photo, a DVD of the flight and interactive GPS track log of the flying time, overlaid on Google Earth.
