How do you launch and land a tandem hang gliding flight?

All of the tandems are towed up behind an ultralight airplane that was designed specifically for towing hang gliders. This means that your tandem flight will launch and land on wheels. Both you and your tandem pilot will be flying, launching and landing in a prone, lying down position. No running involved.

Can I bring my camera?

You can bring your camera with you on the flight. They cannot risk the possibility of you dropping or damaging your camera, so you will not be allowed to take pictures. Instead just enjoy your flight, check out the beautiful view, learn how to steer the glider. They will take the pictures for you ($25 charge).

How fast do you fly?

The trim speed of a hang glider is about 18-20 MPH. Trim speed is defined as the speed a glider is flying when the pilot is flying hands off.  Most gliders stall at around 15 MPH, are towed at about 33-35 MPH, and reach top speeds of 45-65 MPH (depending upon the glider model).

What is the difference between a hang gliding and para gliding?
Unlike the rigid airframe that shapes the wing of a hang glider, a paragliding wing is maintained only by air pressure.  This means that the hang glider wing is more stable and can be flown at higher speeds and in a larger range of wind conditions.  Para glider pilots fly in a supine or seated position unlike hang glider pilots who fly in prone (laying down) position.

“Awesome!”
“Hang gliding was amazing! The whole Lookout Mountain Flight Park team was great and my pilot made the experience really fun!”
“Cliff was my pilot for my flight and he truly made it worth it.....thank you Cliff for your time and quality ride....it was absolutely grand!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
“This was our first experience with hang gliding. The staff was great! We had a wonderful time.”
“The hang gliding experience was awesome. The instructor was truly a professional. I have taught various types of classes for many years and I can say that Clifton not only knows his trade but is excellent at explaining and keeping people calm and involed during the experience. Highly recommend!”
“We had a blast hang-gliding. My wife's pictures didn't come out on her flight so they offered to take her back up and re-do the pictures for her! it was so nice of them to offer that and it was a great experience overall.”
“They were very busy and we waited from 10:00 to 11:15 to go (not that big of a deal), but they had us scheduled for 11:15, yet our confirmation from Cloud 9 had us confirmed at 10...? The flying conditions were (as we were told) ?ideal?, however, Cloud 9 advertised 15 ? 20 minute flight time (it was 8 minutes and 56 seconds from the time the wheels actually left the ground to touch down). I certainly understand the need for efficiency when there are many folks that have paid and are waiting for their ride, but barely over half the advertised flight time is not reasonable. I?m not certain if there is anything that can be done, I?m simply passing along that we were not given what we purchased nor what was advertised. ”
