Welcome to the CHGA. We're glad you found us!
Hang gliding is the best kept secret in the world of outdoor activities. It
is a beautiful combination of athletic sport, nature and science. Also it is
much safer than you think. Have you have had dreams of flight? If the concept of having your own personal wing, on which you can fly for hours without a motor, appeals to you then contact one of the
schools about where you can learn to fly hang gliders or
paragliders and join us in the air, because...
You Can Do This... YOU CAN FLY !
Join us for dinner at George's Pizza in the center of Unionville, CT on the first Tuesday of every month at 7pm.
