How Hang Gliding Works

How a Hang Glider Flies

Hang-gliding Equipment

A Basic Flight
... Incredibly Low Travel Fares 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.

Berkeley Hang Gliding Club
Welcome to the Berkeley Hang Gliding Club information page. We are a club dedicated to promoting, teaching, and most importantly participating in hang gliding. For those not familiar with it, hang gliding is the coolest sport in the world. For an introduction to hang gliding, see the Hang Gliding FAQ
Who are we?
The Berkeley Hang Gliding and Paragliding Club is a non-profit group comprised of pilots ranging in experience from true beginners to advanced pilots. Originally formed in the 1970s, this hang gliding club is one of only a select few in the United States that operates as a cooperative, where students are taught by instructors within the club. Upon gaining experience and knowledge about the sport of flying, they will in turn be able to share that knowledge with new students. The ongoing interaction between students and instructors is one of the great pleasures and benefits of the club. And because the instructors are volunteers, learning to hang glide is inexpensive. With more than fifty active pilots, the club plans weekly trips to the mountains during flying season, has weekly meetings, and organizes lessons for new pilots biannually.
More about lessons
Each fall and spring, the club organizes lesson sets for new pilots. The lessons include both ground school, where the basic concepts of hang gliding are taught while one's feet are still on the ground, and three weekends of actual flight training. Don't worry about equipment: the club owns training gliders, harnesses, and helmets. Contrary to popular belief, one's first flight is not from a cliff. Training begins on level ground and gradually proceeds uphill as one gains necessary skills and experience. The emphasis of early flights is on perfecting launches and landings. Training does not culminate with the end of formal lessons; hang gliding involves continual learning, and instructors are always willing to help. Soon you will be heading to the mountains.
