Hang Gliding

Topics: aviation

Humans have thought about flying under their own power since they first looked up at the sky. Hang gliding is a way to fulfill that fantasy. For many, the image of hang gliding is running off a small hill and staying up for a few seconds. With the proper training, hang glider pilots can launch off the side of a mountain and stay aloft for hours at a time, thousands of feet up in the air. Host Marianne Eaton takes a lesson at the Morningside Flight Park in Charlestown, New Hampshire and then joins a pilot for a tandem ride at 2500 feet.
