Nestled in a quiet little valley in Wilderness is a magical place. For the magic that goes on here is the culmination of centuries of desires, adventures and dreams of free spirited people - all with one goal. "To fly, like a bird".
Here at Eagle Encounters Soaring Center, we have the magic to make those dreams come true.
Harnessing the natural powers of the sun and the wind, hang gliding is the purest form of human flight. Hang gliders perform more like a soaring bird than any other aircraft - and the method of control - weight shift, is the simplest and most instinctive. The prone flying position gives you the most natural and bird- like experience available.
We pride ourselves with a training philosophy that carries the safety and enjoyment of our customers at heart. Eagle Encounters offers you a variety of courses. All are designed from years of experience in gathering information on pilot needs, making your progress faster and more enjoyable.
