  • What is hang gliding, what is a hang glider?
    Hang gliding is one of the simplest forms of human flight. A hang glider is a non-motorized, foot-launched wing. A Hang glider has a rigid frame maintaining the shape of the wing, with the pilot usually flying in a prone position. The hang glider wing is constructed of rip-stop nylon or mylar over an aluminum frame. Hang gliders are controlled by shifting the pilot's weight with respect to the glider. Pilots are suspended from a strap connected to the glider's frame (hence the name "hang" glider). By moving forward and backward and side to side at the end of this strap, the pilot alters the center of gravity of the glider. This then causes the glider to pitch or roll in the direction of the pilot's motion and thus allows both speed control and turning. With a hang glider, you can fly like a bird, soaring upwards on currents of air. Hang gliders routinely stay aloft for 3 hours or more, climb to elevations of 15,000', and go cross-country for vast distances.

    Hang gliding
    Hang gliding is a recreational activity and competitive sport closely related to gliding , but using much more minimalistic craft often consisting of a metal-framed fabric wing , with the pilot mounted on a harness hanging from the wing frame and exercising control by shifting body weight against a triangular bar also attached to the frame. Many early experiments with gliding flight throughout the late 19th century were performed using craft that would now be considered hang gliders, and interest in the sport continued throughout the 20th century Table of contents 1 History

    Q: Are hang gliding and paragliding safe? A: Like most adventure sports, there is an element of risk, but in general the sport is as safe or as dangerous as you make it.
    Correct instruction from a BHPA registered school, learning to "read" the prevailing conditions, and flying a wing appropriate for your own level of experience all help to reduce the risks, and maximise your enjoyment.
    Never be afraid to seek advice from more experience pilots, and never be tempted to show off in front of your mates. Hitting the ground hard does nothing for your "street cred", or your health.

    The demand for hang gliding opportunities is increasing on the forest. Use has been on the rise. Lakeview, Oregon hosts the National Hang Gliding and Para Sailing Championships and Sugar Hill, a mountain on the Modoc National Forest, is one of the major launch sites. The road to the top of Sugar Hill is unimproved and poses a safety hazard and there is a shortage of parking areas. There are no sanitary facilities available at the launch site, and potable water is also not available. Landing areas have not been identified resulting in landowner conflicts. So please check with landowners and drive safely to the site prior to starting your hang gliding adventure. Please do not construct unauthorized launch facilities

The history of hang gliding has origins in the birth of aviation itself.
    There are two basic types of hang gliders, rigid wings and flex wings. As the name implies, rigid wing gliders are stiff and offer better aerodynamics than the flex wing glider. Along with the increased aerodynamics is an increase in price. Gliders of this type are classified by the FAI as a class 5 or a class 2. The main difference in class 5 and class 2 glider is that the class 2 glider utilzes a fairing to decrease drag.
    Most students learn on flex wings because they offer better flight control and have a predictable landing characteristic. Flex wings are generally less expensive than rigid wings and are more common amongst the recreational pilots. Flex wing hang gliders are classified as class 1 gliders by the FAI.
    Launching a Hang Glider A hang glider is launched primarily in one in three methods, a slope launch, a cliff launch, or a tow launch. Although not as common, a hang glider is capable of being launched from the back of a moving vehicle or by being pulled by a horse.

    More Information
    Hang gliding is defined by the U.S. Hang Gliding Association as "low-speed, light-weight, unpowered, human flight in devices which are capable of being footlaunched and are capable of gliding and soaring flight." Hang gliding may be appropriate in parks and forests that were established to provide a wide variety of recreational activities, such as the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area, but in most circumstances it is inappropriate in a park unit established for hiking and backpacking, such as the A.T. Concerns include the potential for congregation of large groups of people at launch sites (which usually coincide with A.T. overlooks), conflicts with hikers seeking solitude, and vehicular access. However, hang gliding usually is a low-impact, individual form of recreation and under the right circumstances these potential impacts can be fully mitigated. The question of the appropriateness of hang gliding along the Appalachian Trail was first discussed in 1981, when several unorganized groups of hang gliders requested permission from the NPS A.T. Park Office (ATPO) to use various launch sites along the Trail in the mid-Atlantic region. At the time, no clear policy or direction pertaining to this relatively new sport existed within the Trail community. Individuals within ATPO, ATC, and the affected Trail clubs debated the issue for some time before a decision finally was made to issue a permit to the Harlem Valley Hang Gliding Club for a launch site at Hosner Mountain in Dutchess County, New York. Shortly thereafter, the National Park Service Washington Office issued new direction requiring parks to seek a special regulation to allow hang gliding, and the ATPO terminated the permit.

    20. Lake Chelan Tourism, Events, Rentals, Hotels, Information, And Cabins
    Now known as the recreational hang gliding Capital of the World Chelan drawspilots every summer from around the world to fly the rising thermals of North
    Chelan gained an international reputation in 1994 when 46 women from around the world competed in the most successful Women's World Hang Gliding Championships ever held. Now known as the "Recreational Hang Gliding Capital of the World" - Chelan draws pilots every summer from around the world to fly the rising thermals of North Central Washington. This is an extreme sport which requires extensive training, but for the interested visitor, a trip to the Chelan Sky Park on top of the Butte is well worth the drive. Visitors to the top of the Butte are often amazed to learn these pilots have flown all the way into Canada from Chelan and that 100-mile flights are not uncommon over the flat wheat fields of eastern Washington. This past July, one pilot flew 155 miles before landing. How to get there
    Drive out of downtown Chelan towards Wenatchee to Lakeside. Turn left onto Chelan Butte Road just west of EZ's Burger Deluxe. Follow the road to the top of Chelan Butte. Drive very carefully... the road is primitive and rough and there can be lots of traffic. NO SMOKING PLEASE.
