Hang Gliding over Florida Keys Waters with Scot Trueblood

Being towed aloft by the custom Aircraft Carrier is just the beginning of Adrex.com´s next hang gliding adventure story. When your altitude is reached, the towline is released, and you soar like a bird above the splendid scenery, gliding effortlessly and slicing through the sky like a Superhero. With Paradise Hang Gliding, Inc., the fun is much more than flying. You also get a great day of boating and wildlife spotting in the waters of Florida Bay and the sparkling Straits of Florida.
