A friend turned 50, and we went to the beach to celebrate. We decided to try the beginner hang gliding lesson, even though we're "mature" adults. We were a little worried it may be too extreme for us, but we were fine. The beginner class...More

Beautiful mountain high sand dunes at the peak. Decorative kite flying or hang gliding! The ocean on one side the bay on the opposite side. Public bathroom. Restaurants and gift shops galore.

Probably the coolest experience of my life, next to swimming with the dolphins. I can't encourage you enough to try this awesome experience. Soaring through the sky, over the waterways, viewing the bluffs ... AMAZING. The landing (which is on wheels) was actually smoother than...More

Fantastic find by my MIL for a great family activity on Nags Head. Everyone enjoyed it from 12 yo son to 70+ in laws. Starts with a video about Jockey's Ridge and then the basics. A hike out to the dunes and more instruction. We...More

I went Oct 2016 and had a great time, about 5 "flights" or runs down the dunes for about $100. There's a fair amount of waiting in between runs as everyone in your group takes turns. When I used to do it back in 1976...More

Just got back from a fun afternoon of learning how to fly a hang glider off the dunes in Jockeys Ridge Park. It was a challenge for the adults but we did better on the steeper runs. The kids took to it like birds, of...More

We took our daughter for her 10th birthday. It was awesome. My daughter had a great time. The look on her face in our pictures was pure joy. Bruce and the other instructor were fantastic, funny, and personable. We will be back!

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
I'm interested in the roughly $100 class with 5 flights. I see they have a kids and an adult class. Are they separate though or is it an option to sign my family of 4 (2 adults, 2 kids) up together in one class?

You all can sign up for the class, the kid's classes may not be set up online since they require extra instructors to ensure a safe lesson for the kids. If you call 1-877-FLY-THIS our reservation professionals will be able... More
