Hello everyone

I was thinking of buying my dad a hang gliding lesson/ride for his birthday (I'd go to of coarse this is just my way of getting someone to go with me ) and am trying to find places that do that sort of thing. The only place i can find is around Acadia with is fine but wanted to see if anyone here knew of others.

Also I wanted to know if any one here has hang glided before and if they could offer any tips for first timers

Thanks
zedd

My tip:
Update your life insurance policies.

I admire you though...I'm way too chicken to try that. Yikes...after you go will you come back and post your experience? Be safe wild child.

I heard they do hang gliding in Pittsfield. I saw some hang gliders a few years ago in the Skowhegan/Hinckley area. I might want to try it. I saw someone parasailing before in Naples Maine, so that might be a possible hang gliding spot.

Good luck. Pam

That original post was from 2008. Chances are they have completed the activity by now.

Ya but... ya know, hang gliding - para-sailing, it's almost the same thing.
