    Robert Welch I'm an old hang glider pilot, the last glider I flew was a Wills Wing duck 180. About 25 years ago. I've always wanted to get back into flying. I like the idea of trike flying ,something I've been wanting to do for a while. I like the idea of getting in air and going somewhere, it just sounds to cool. Where do I get started?

      John Smith Are you in Olympia, Washington? There are some active trike fliers at Morton airport. Richard Williams. He's on the nanolighttrikers Yahoo Group. You might like nanolights - they fly closer to hang glider speeds you're used to.

      white eagle robert i stopped flying hang gliders in 93 because a nasty divorce. In 2005 i bought a liesure aviation mag and i was shocked at the advancement in triking. 3 months later i had a trike. I called up my ol hang gliding bud who also stopped flying h/g . Soon he bought a trike and to this day is still thanking me. Iam in western montana but every year a few of us host the pacific NW fly in. this year we hold it in sand point idaho not too far for you. Its one of the largest trike fky ins in the country. We have a large variety of flyers from xc tours , elsa trikes and many of us are hang glider pilots that fly soaring trikes. I would personally like to envite you . Its a great way to meet the flying community you see here on tps.Just a real down to earth bunch of people who have bonded into some lasting friendships enjoying this great sport. their are many different aspects in triking. So one really good piece of advice from an x hangie to another. Enjoy a fly in and see the many aspects to the sport and you can make a clear choice on what kind of machine you would like to persue! from a high end dream machine Revo, Quik r ,tanarg , delta jet ,navaho to many in between in price and performance. And for the aging h/g pilot theirs many options as well the aeros ant, Northwings atf, sky cycle soaring trikes. their are many many cfis and dealers on this site that i think that will be more than glad to help you. Welcome back to flying robert.

      Tony Castillo Robert, you sound just like me just a few years ago !!! my advice .. check to see who flies trikes close by and try to hitch a ride ... then, get ready because you will be HOOKED! if the flight is with a flight instructor even better ... I am in Gulf Shores, AL and happy to take you flying .. but I think your are kind of far away from here
