Women’s Hang Gliding Festival 2008

September 25-28 2008, Lookout Mountain Flight Park, Tennessee, aims to foster the idea of women together in flight by hosting its first annual Women’s Hang Gliding Festival.

The festival will offer fun flying tasks off the mountain as well as at the training hills, instruction on the hills or tandem, and clinics led by world class pilots. It will be an opportunity to network with other female pilots and it will be a non-threatening atmosphere for rusty pilots and first timers.

Non flying options great for family and friends include organized hikes, games, crafts, yoga classes, canoeing on local creeks and rivers, and visiting Lookout Mountain or Chattanooga.  There will be dinner and festivities every evening.
