Hang gliding in Golden
Prior to your flight, the pilot will meet you in the landing zone before heading up to the upper parking lot. He will show you how a hang glider flies. He will then take you to the launching site where there will be another launch practice, but without the glider.
Once you get comfortable with the procedures, you can then start flying. Tandem flights usually last about 5 to 10 minutes and can sometimes go longer.
Requirements: They require their that passengers weigh less than 175 pounds. If you or someone in your party is between 175 and 225 lbs, they can arrange a tandem paraglide flight for them, so they are included in the excitement! Wear closed toe shoes good for the brief, uphill hike, as well as sun protection for your eyes. Helmets and other flying gear is provided.
