Outer Banks Hang Gliding

The Outer Banks has a heritage with flying, but it’s not limited to airplanes. Outer Banks hang gliding has been enabling people to soar over the dunes with just a kite and proper training for the past 25 years. Hang gliding sessions are held on Jockey’s Ridge, so each flight will have you whizzing over this historic sand dune as awed visitors look on. Outer Banks hang gliding lessons are kept small with about five people per instructor to ensure that participants get generous amounts of help as needed. As you take off with the wind, you’ll get an inkling of how Orville and Wilbur Wright might have felt as their plane lifted off the ground. If you’re interested in taking a hang gliding lesson, call ahead to make reservations – this popular activity is in high demand. Don’t forget your camera when you go out to hang glide; you’ll definitely look super cool swooping down the sandy incline, and you’ll want that picture to share all over your social media pages!
