Hang Gliding

by Karen

Question: Where can I call to schedule a tandem hang gliding experience?


Dee's Reply: That's a good question! I know that White Crest Beach in Wellfleet is a favored spot for hang gliding, thanks to the ocean-facing dunes and reliable breezes.

And I believe the Sea Scape Motor Inn, on the Bay side in North Truro, still caters to gliding enthusiasts from all over the northeast and beyond. They used to host a "Halloween Fly In". Not sure if that's still going on or not.

However, as far as I know, this is all for private gliders only. I've never heard or read of any company on Cape Cod that offers hang gliding experiences to the general public.

I'll do some asking around and post back if I can find a business or organization that offers this service.

In the mean time, if anyone out there has more info on this subject - please post a comment (just click on the "Click here to post comments" link, below) and share what you know!

Best Regards,

Dee

UPDATE - 2013: Sorry to report that Seascape Inn has closed.

I have been going to the Cape for 38 years, flying at the Seascape. There have been some tandem flights but not many. If you want to fly, go to "Hang Glide New England" for flights at a tow park in Mass. Rhett is the tug pilot and has been one,if not the best, for 20 years.You can go to the Connecticut Hang Gliding Assoc. web site for a link.
