TANDEM FLIGHTS...
consist of you flying with an experienced  USHPA certified tandem aero-tow hang gliding instructor.   The Dragonfly tows the tandem glider to the chosen altitude.  Once at altitude, the glider releases and begins free flight.  Your instructor will let you fly as much as you want until it is time for the instructor to land.  We also offer an HD video of your flight which can only be purchased at time of flight.  The 1500 foot flight lasts 8 to 12 minutes.  Each 500 foot upgrade adds 4 to 5 minutes to flight time.  After you reserve your flight, you will receive a confirmation email that explains our location, as well as what to wear and bring.  We give weather updates 48 and 24 hours ahead of flight time.  
AERO-TOWING...
We offer aero-towing training and AT sign off plus provide towing to pilots who have a current AT rating and have aero-towed within the last several months.

What an experience this was!! I can not say enough good things about not only the hang gliding experience, but the people here at thermal valley as well. From checking in, to leaving they were all the nicest group of people that made you feel right at home. If you were nervous at all about going up, they completely put you at ease and made it the most comfortable experience. From the cheers, hugs, singing, and excitement of the entire staff it is not a disappointment. I will be back!! Craig, Larry, rich, Olivia, Laura, and the entire staff are ahhhh-mazing!!

Honestly, I can not say enough good things about Thermal Valley! It was one of the best experiences of my life. It's such a beautiful area & perfect for gliding. But, the difference is the people! Everyone there was fun & friendly, yet professional. We felt like we spent the evening with old friends... the ones you have a crazy good time with, but trust they have your back! I highly, highly recommend them! Thanks guys for giving me such wonderful memories of my first hang gliding experience and for the birthday song! You're the best! I can't wait to come back & get my t-shirt.
