Lessons & tandem flights are available everyday through Kitty Hawk Kites, the world’s largest hang gliding school since 1974. Make your dream of flying a reality at Jockey’s Ridge State Park, a savored slice of the same system of dunes where the Wright Brothers flew over 100 years ago. The soft sands and smooth winds make lessons fun and safe for students of all ages and fitness levels. After your beginner lesson, head north to The Cotton Gin for a high altitude tandem flight with an instructor. A breathtaking bird’s eye view of the Outer Banks awaits.
