Flying High for 30 Years

October 16, 2006

Today’s Chattanooga newspaper (subscription required at link below) announces the 30th anniversary of Lookout Mountain Hang Gliding. While actually in Georgia, this is close enough to Tennessee for inclusion on this website.

The school, if one can call it that, claims to be the largest such enterprise in the country, producing five times more pilots than any other school. (The word “dropout,” in this context, takes on new meaning.)

The 30th Anniversary Celebration takes place October 26-28. Want to give this sport a try? During the Celebration, introductory flight packages for two cost $199–a 50 percent discount.
