We've all wondered what it would feel like to be a bird: skimming thousands of feet above the ground, your wings spread, the countryside stretching beneath you like a patchwork quilt. Well, going hang gliding is your chance to find out! Harness up, hoist your wing and charge downhill, and after a few seconds you'll feel your reward: the magic moment of lift-off. Then just tuck your legs into your harness, pull back on your control bar, and enjoy the ride! Opt for a tandem flight with a skilled instructor if you're a little nervous or just want to soar. But if you can't wait to get your hands on those controls, try a day's taster course and watch your skills take off. Who knows, you might discover a new passion that will keep you airborne for life!
