My Hang Gliding ExperienceWhat an amazing adventure! It takes just a few minutes for you and your instructor to get strapped into a harness and set to go. The instructor explains everything to you. The towplane takes off and up you go! The scenery is breathtaking and the ride is very smooth. After you reach about 2,000 feet, the tow line is released and the plane descends while the hang glider flies steadily. The instructor tells you how to steer by shifting your weight and gives you the opportunity to control the glider. It is up to you, how much flying you want to do. On a clear day, you can see many miles in the distance including views of vineyards, farms and waterways. After about 20 minutes, you return with a soft landing on the grass of Campbell Field Airport. This is a wonderful way to try hang gliding. The Eastern Shore Hang Gliding Center also offers more extensive flight training programs.
