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.

Launching at Cape Cod in January 2016
Eight pilots braved the cool temperatures in this rare El Nino winter day to soar near perfect conditions at Welfleet, Mass. Jon and Kermit were among them with all pilots covering the entire 14 miles of soarable ridge under partly sunny skies. Thanks to local photographer Nancy Bloom for the photo.
