- Woolacombe (Devon)
- Gift Voucher valid for 1 Participant
This tandem hang gliding experience, in Devon, is a chance to enjoy flying at its purest. Take to the skies with your dual pilot, and soar over stunning countryside and coastline, using nothing but naturally rising air.
The experience takes place along the North Devon coastline, with views of Exmoor National Park. You'll be met by your instructor at the prearranged take-off point, and briefed on what to expect during the flight. Next, you'll be introduced to the equipment and secured in the harness alongside your dual pilot. After a few steps, you'll 'foot launch' from the hillside and take flight! As you admire the views, your instructor will point out the features of terrain and weather that allow the glider to maintain height and even gain altitude. If the conditions are right, you'll then be offered the chance to fly yourself. Free of noisy engines and propellers, you can enjoy a sensation like no other - before reluctantly returning to solid ground.
The Hang Gliding Experience, in Devon, offers a serene, bird's-eye perspective of a glorious landscape. An Experience Days voucher makes an unforgettable gift for adventurous souls, young and old.
