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.

Four local pilots now have chosen to supplement their flying time by purchasing a used soaring trike. These are surprisingly soarable on light wind days and allow a slightly different way to explore new mountains without the hassle of clearing a launch slot. Many require little space for storage and can be folded to fit in most vehicles. Prices range from $3K and up for one in good condition. Or they can be built from scratch if you are inclined. Plans are available.
