Experience an Incredible Thrill of a Lifetime Flying a Powered Hang Glider Over Lake Tahoe

Summary

Features: Hang Gliding Tahoe shows you the views of South Lake Tahoe from up above, flying high in an Apollo Trike instructed by FAA flight instructor Paul Hamilton.

Why We Go: Hang Gliding Tahoe is beautiful, adventurous and fun! Not only that, but it's also great for the whole family and can be experienced year-round.

  • Flying Hight: The best part of hang gliding in Tahoe is the beautiful views from above. You won't be able to see these things if you stay on the ground for your entire visit.
  • Safety First: The Apollo Trike, used for Lake Tahoe Hang Gliding, tests higher than most conventional airplanes for G-forces. The machines are maintained and inspected by FAA certified mechanics, and they take serious precautions when it comes to weather and safety for all! You even get the reassurance of a backup parachute. 
  • All Year Tour: Unlike many things you can do while you're here on vacation, Hang Gliding Lake Tahoe isn't confined to the summer or the winter, but rather you can go any time of the year! The sights are just as beautiful in December as they are in July!

Inside Knowledge: There is a weight limit set by the FAA, so Hang Gliding Tahoe can't legally take anyone that weighs more than 250 lbs up in the air.

Do's and Don'ts

  • Do Weigh Yourself: Hang Gliding Tahoe follows the legal weight limit set by the FAA, so be aware of this restriction before trying to book a tour.
  • Do Take Weather into Account: With hang gliding in Tahoe, and any kind of aviation, weather is always a factor that will determine whether your trip will go through or not. 
  • Don't Wear Open Toed Shoes: Hang gliding Lake Tahoe can get pretty chilly with the winds, even in the summer. Long pants, a light jacket and even more layers in the winter months are recommended for fliers.
  • Don't Do Something Else Instead: Hang Gliding in Tahoe is the way to go. It's a completely different experience than parasailing, sailplane riding, a balloon ride or a helicopter tour and none of these other options will get you the same thrill.
