- ABOUT THE SPOT
Hang Gliding in Lake Havasu, Lake Havasu City, Arizona USA
The 45 mi (72.42 km) long lake’s capacity is 648000 ac/2622 km² on a very low desert elevation of 482 ft (146.91 m). The concrete dam that makes a glorious arch was built between 1934 and 1938 by the United States Bureau of Reclamation.
There are two aqueducts that need to be filled with water and that is exactly the lake’s primary purpose. Except from that purpose the lake is also available for fun and especially hang gliding.
Feel the blood tingling excitement as you soar over the magnificent scenery of Lake Havasu. Hang glide enthusiasts will literally run and jump off of Crystal Cliffs in order to launch their hang glider. Crystal Cliffs are kind of steep and their height varies from 15 to 150 ft (4.57 – 45.72 m).
Another thrilling option is powered hang gliders, which are ultra light aircraft extraordinarily similar to the traditional ones. Schools nearby will help you, if you are novice and provide you with the necessary equipment.
