Hang gliding offers an exciting aerial view!
There are so many things to see and do when you visit Lenoir & the NC foothills, but many of them involve keeping your feet on the ground. If you’d like to see Lenoir, North Carolina from a different perspective and get an adrenaline rush in the process, consider hang gliding! The experience is like nothing you have ever done as you sail through the air like an eagle in flight. You’ll be able to see such amazing sights as the Hawk’s Bill mountains, Table Rock, the Catawba River, and so much more.
Thermal Valley Hang Gliding operates out of Foothill’s Regional Airport to offer a unique tandem hang gliding experience. You’ll fly with an USHPA-Certified aero-tow instructor who will teach you the basics of this popular and amazing experience. Whether you choose to participate to check hang gliding off your bucket list as a one-time experience or get started with advanced training so you can take solo flights, you will always remember the time you spent on your very first flight.
Adding hang gliding to your visit to the Lenoir area is an ideal way to see from the sky the things you have already visited on the ground, or you can get a bird’s eye view before you visit them on foot to have a better idea of what beauty awaits you when you hike through the area.
