Hang Gliding


Hang out with the largest hang gliding school in the world

The sands and constant wind of the Outer Banks make the area the perfect destination for gliding on the air. In fact, Orville Wright set the world record for gliding in the Outer Banks several years after his historic flight. Combine that perfection with the largest sand dune in the eastern United States at Jockey’s Ridge State Park and you get the ideal location for Kitty Hawk Kites, the largest hang gliding school in the world. Kitty Hawk Kites has taught more than 300,000 people ranging from ages 4 to 92 and all levels of physical challenges. With several locations, Kitty Hawk also offers kiteboarding, parasailing, kayak tours and other activities for visitors to enjoy on the coast. Kitty Hawk Kites also hosts special events throughout the year, including a popular Kids Day. Guests can even fly a replica of the 1902 Wright Glider.
