Hang Gliding in Chattanooga
When the sun warms the air of the Tennessee River Valley it creates something called a "thermal". The winds that surround Chattanooga typically blow west-northwest, which make the area a perfect launching pad for eagles and hang gliders. These thermals that rise along the Cumberland Mountains are what allow the pilots to glider over the ridges and valleys for miles and miles at a time.
Because nature has given us these elements Chattanooga boasts the largest hang gliding school in the country at Lookout Mountain Flight Park.
