Have you ever stood upon a hilltop watching eagles lazily
circle high above and wished that you could join them?
Do you dream at night of breaking free from your earthly
bonds and floating the skies above your neighborhood?
Believe it or not, such dreams are entirely within reach!
Hang gliding, the original 'extreme sport', is the purest,
most bird-like way for us otherwise earthbound beings to
fly, and with modern materials & technology and proper
training it's among the safest and most affordable as well.
At Southern Oregon Airsports, we help make the dream of free-flight available
to you. Through schooling provided by the only USHPA-certified instructor
serving Medford, Grants Pass, Ashland, Roseburg and surrounding areas, you
will receive the proper training and equipment to get off the ground and in the
air in the most reasonable way possible in terms of safety and affordability.
Whether your goal is to core a boomer to cloud base and go several miles
cross-country or to float the glass-off for hours until sunset, our expertise can
make your goals available in the shortest amount of time.
Both training and flying are about to get even easier! Southern Oregon
Airsports now has a tow system that will allow hang glider pilots to launch from
flat ground to thousands of feet in the sky, making the drive to a mountaintop
unnecessary. The system will also be used for low and slow training tows,
accelerating the learning process by saving the student the hike up the training
hill, thus reducing turn-around time and student fatigue. This also reduces the
variable of fickle wind direction and gustiness since training tows will take
place in calm air. Click the image at left to see the system in action.
