I know Hang Gliding might not be people’s first thought when they think of something to do on their Florida holiday but for some adrenalin junkies it will be right up their street.
Wallaby Ranch is just off the US27 in Deen Still Road (less than 10 minutes from our home) it was founded in 1991 and it’s founder Malcolm is by far the most experienced tandem hang gliding pilot in the world, and has more than 30,000 incident-free tandem flights under his belt.
The ranch is set in beautiful secluded location, surrounded by natural Florida woodlands, home to many different species of wildlife, from deer, migrating birds, various reptiles and amphibians to the occasional sighting of the very rare and endangered Florida Panther.
The ranch itself is not shared with anyone else nor is the 100-acre take-off and landing field so you don’t have to worry about any other aircraft of any type anywhere near your flight and the landing field is so big that it allows take-offs and landings in any direction.
Anyone can fly as long as you are over 18 years old and weigh under 240 lbs . They are tandem flights where you have an instructor with you the whole time, you can only have 2 people in the aircraft, this means you get one on one instruction and are able to take the controls if you feel confident enough to do so. What a fantastic experience.
