Lovely little spot ‘hidden’ in the middle of farm country - wonderful people - amazing exhilarating experience - thank you so much for my first hang gliding adventure!!!
It was really a perfect experience!!
I was a little nervous when I was going through the wavier and almost had second thoughts, but Hang Glide Chicago was great. Joe, Mike and the pilot were friendly, helpful and reassuring. They all wanted my experience to be a great one. It was more than great,it was AWESOME.
Everyone at Hang Glide Chicago was extremely friendly and made me feel as comfortable as possible. Great experience that I would take my whole family to do.
The experience was awesome! I felt like a bird. It was an adrenaline rush and very peaceful all at the same time. The experience provider was inviting and fun, they make you feel comfortable and you leave there feeling I can't wait to do that again.
The Clifton Illinois facility was very nice, a great experience.
