Our training site has practice hills that are a great way to start with a landing zone that is a mile long and a half mile wide. Over the years, we have taught at dozens of sites in the Bay Area, but Tres Pinos is by far the best place for teaching Hang Gliding. The hills are gentle and the training area has the most consistent, reliable winds anywhere in the Bay Area. With foot launched flight it is important to have the wind blow up the hill - the valley where our training site is located, funnels the wind straight in for the best possible training experience.

The town of Tres Pinos is 5 miles past Hollister on Highway 25, turn left on Quien Sabe Road. The first gate on the right is where you’ll park and meet your instructor. (Only instructor vehicles are allowed beyond the gate.) Directions
