An Epic Flight Adventure.
During your flight, you will fly with a highly qualified USHPA Tandem Instructor that has flown thousands of flights. By the use of a special design boat and a unique payout winch system, we will be towed aloft over 2,500 feet. where we then release from the tow line to fly unrestricted. Each flight is different. Sometimes we soar the rising air currents while sharing the sky with Eagles. Other times we fly along the majestic bluffs that surround Lake Pepin. Most of all, it will be an experience that will be one of the most spectacular memories of your life. Flight time does vary depending on wind conditions and uplifting air currents. 15 to 20 minutes is an average, with another 15 to 20 minutes time preparing on the land and in the boat. Allow an hour for this Adventure
