About Papa Tango Aviation
An Intro Flight Lesson with an FAA Certified Flight Instructor is the best way to taste the exhilaration of powered hang gliding or "trike" flying. Intro flight lessons are aimed at letting you experience the feel of flying. We'll teach you the basics of powered hang gliding during your flight, and you'll leave not only with some real "hands-on" piloting time, but memories you'll never forget.

I was given the flight as a birthday gift, and it was absolutely AMAZING. Papa Tango Aviation introduced me to a different side of flying...A side that puts you in touch with nature itself! It's like riding a motorcycle in the air!!!! I am planning to pursue this fun side of aviation!

Todd is an excellent instructor and pilot. He made sure I understood the equipment and how and why it worked the way it did. I felt safe always. I got a feel for what it's like to fly the powered hang-glider and his is top-of-the-line. I was grinning the whole flight through. Thank you Todd for a glimpse into this area of flight.

Todd Halver runs a top notch operation. First and foremost, he meticulously cares for his aircraft. It is in immaculate condition. He is also an experienced, cautious pilot. I wouldn’t go up with anyone who didn’t meet those first two criteria. Now for the fun part. What a rush! Todd used the analogy of trike flying being a “motorcycle with wings”. That is a great explanation. Todd knows the area well and took me over some beautiful countryside, which included some low passes over grass airstrips and flying along the Yadkin River. Todd is a great tour guide and excellent pilot. I enjoyed the experience so much that I am now taking lessons from Todd to get my Sport Pilot License.
