Western Carolina Airtime Fun

Post by CloudHopper »

The Covid-19 effects have caused more pilots to "get out and fly" this year in North and South Carolina than normal. There's been lots of scooter towing, aerotowing, and mountain flying going on. The tourist tandem business has been active. There's not been much internet reporting of the flights, as some pilots have expressed concern that the press could backfire, given than some might view hang gliding as a non-essential activity and not a prudent recreational choice during this unusual time. I, for one, disagree.

Based in Lenoir, Thermal Valley offers tandem hang gliding and paragliding flights as well as solo instruction and refresher training. Visit thermalvalley.net for details.

At press time, the Tater Hill paragliding and hang gliding competition is set for July 26-August 1 in Zionville. Spectators can catch the action from Silverstone Road or can call to arrange a tandem paragliding flight during the weekend. flytaterhill.com
