Come and test fly the new glider everybody is talking about. This glider launches and lands with grace and ease, soars with the hawks and glides effortlessly. Do you want to play "King of the Hill" or just knock out spot landings all day long? Then jump the C2, only at Lookout Mountain Hang Gliding.

A Basic Flight
... Shop or Compare Prices Imagine soaring like a hawk thousands of feet above the ground. Although the air is somewhat chilly, the view is tremendous and the solitude is relaxing. You search for updrafts of air to keep you aloft so that you can enjoy this feeling for hours. This is the experience of hang gliding. Photo courtesy Ramy Yanetz Hang glider Ramy Yanetz over Rio de Janiero The hang glider's wing, called a delta wing or Rogallo wing , is an outgrowth of NASA engineer Francis Rogallo's research on kites and parachutes in the 1960s. Rogallo had proposed the wing as a method of returning spacecraft to Earth. The delta-wing parachute was lightweight, durable and highly maneuverable. Later, John Dickenson, Bill Moyes, Bill Bennett and Richard Miller developed the Rogallo wing into the modern hang glider and launched an immensely popular sport shared by millions of people worldwide. In this edition of HowStuffWorks , we will examine the sport of hang gliding. We'll show you the details of the aircraft, the equipment involved, how to fly it and how to become a certified hang glider.
