Lookout Mountain Flight Park is the largest and most popular full time hang gliding school and resort in the United States. Each year, the school teaches, certifies and solos five times as many pilots as any other school.
The flight park is located in Dade County at 7201 Scenic Hwy, Rising Fawn, GA, and includes a 110-acre mountain resort with camping and lodging conveniently located in its landing zone. Amenities include: cabins, clubhouse, bunkhouse,bathhouse, swimming pool, volleyball court, shaded
pavilions and more.
When the park is open, morning classes are offered (weather permitting) every day of the year (except Christmas Day), and evening classes by special arrangement. The pro shop and office are open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. (Eastern time) every day except Wednesday. The shop and office are also closed Tuesdays during our off-season (mid-October to mid-April).
If you are planning to visit and try this exciting sport, you should arrive at the pro shop on top of the mountain at 8 a.m. (Eastern time). Bring jeans or other long pants, sneakers or running shoes, and clothing appropriate for the season to wear during your lesson. Bring a change of clothes for after the class. To prepare for your first flight, walking, jogging or climbing stairs for a couple of weeks before you come can help make your training lessons easier.
Lookout Mountain Flight Park is located on top of Lookout Mountain above Trenton, GA, 10 miles southwest of Chattanooga, TN, on Georgia Highway 189. If you plan on flying into this area, Lovell Field (Chattanooga) is the nearest airport. For detailed directions, visit the www.hanglide.com or call 800-688-5637.
