California Hang Gliding tandem pilot, John Simpson, reaches new heights on Channel 2 News soaring over the San Francisco coast!
Our lessons are designed to take students safely and systematically from zero experience to be able to fly on their own. We start on flat ground and work up the training hill until, pretty soon, you are flying (solo) like a bird. We work with each person as an individual. Our certified instructors make it a safe and fun experience.
Training locations vary due to weather conditions. California Hang Gliding gives lessons at a training site near San Jose and along the San Francisco and San Mateo coastline. Our locations are especially convenient for people living in San Francisco!
You will need 15 to 20 lessons to get your pilot license. This takes from three months up to one year to complete. We will safely take you from beginner to advanced pilot. $160 single lesson, $700 five lesson package.
