I don't say this lightly: hang gliding with Armin was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. As someone who has a fear of heights and gets nervous about turbulence in commercial planes, I didn't think I would enjoy it. My husband talked...More

You feel very secure in your little "pod "or "cocoon" in the air. You are actually somewhat sitting in the lap of your instructor with his arms on either side of you. Very secure feeling!
