1. When you combine a Professional Hang Gliding Pilot
2. A take-off and landing area larger than anywhere in the world
3. Majestic bluffs, Stunning topography and the Mississippi River
4. And a one-of-a-kind towing aloft system that enables you to be towed thousands of feet in the air before detaching and flying free amongst Eagles
Typically, a pilot launches a glider off a hill, cliff or mountain and then rides the uprising air currents to gain altitude before he lands in a field below. Lake Pepin is surrounded by scenic bluffs and cliffs, which make perfect launch sites. A group of hang glider pilots soared these site for decades. But only in the winter when the lake was frozen over and the could land safely on the ice.
Owner & Tandem Instructor Pilot, David Dybsand engineered a system whereas the pilot can launch his glider with floats attached, from a platform on a boat, then be towed up thousands of feet in the sky where he then detaches from the towline to free fly away. The pilot then lands the glider safely on the water and is retrieved by boat. This system of towing aloft from a boat is only done here. WATCH THE VIDEO: THE EAGLE HANG GLIDING STORY
