The Ultralight Introductory Fun Flight
Introductory Tandem Fun Flights are also available by appointment from May to October in the 2 place 3 axis controlled Ultralight Airplane  These Fun Flights are an excellent introduction to the sport of Ultralight Aircraft Flying. Educational pre and post flight briefings are included.
Please contact us for information about Hang Gliding, Paragliding, Triking or Ultralight Aircraft flying lessons at the Freedom Flight Park near Lumby BC Canada in the beautiful North Okanagan Valley. Vernon BC is only 20 minutes west. The Freedom Flight School can help you with your lessons.... follow this link  www.FreedomFlightSchool.com

Private and group Flight lessons, with pre and post flight briefings, run on a regular basis from April to mid October by appointment. Full Immersion 3-7 day all inclusive courses are available. Includes all lessons and equipment. 

Full immersion training is by far the fastest way to get to solo. For hang gliding we start on the new Wills Wing Condor, the slowest flying specialty training hang glider in the world! Many of the lessons are accomplished quickly by using the motorized hang glider trike and scooter towing system. Raven Aviation has found that using the trike and towing saves a lot of time and produces great results. The shallow training hill is on site and the first high flight is off of one of the two mountains on either side of the Freedom Flight Park.

The scooter type winch can pull you up 5 feet to 100 feet off the ground and down a long runway while you learn directional control and landing technique. Once you have gained good control we can pull you up higher before going up the mountain for the real HIGH foot launched Freedom Flight!

 A little history....
The Chief Flight Instructor for the company, Mr. Randy Rauck, has been flying and training people how to fly from the same aerodrome / Flight Park, off and on, since 1976 when Saddle Mountain Soaring School became one of the first certified Hang Gliding Schools in Canada.

In 1978, Canadian Ultralight Aircraft Ltd. was opened here and became one of the first Certified Ultralight Schools in Canada and the very first Ultralight float based school in Canada.

Canadian Ultralight Aircraft also mounted and tested the first Rotax engine installations with Ron Shettler and then became the first authorized Rotax engine dealer  for Ron after he secured the North American distributorship for the engines use with Ultralights in 1978.

Randy has accumulated over 1000 hours in Hang Gliders and over 1000 Ultralight Aircraft hours on wheels, floats and snow skis.
He is also a current licensed private pilot with a night rating and has logged over 750 hours on many different Cessna's, Pipers's and homebuilts.

The semi arid climate of the Okanagan Valley area is ideal for soaring Hang Gliders, Paragliders, Ultralight Sail Planes, Sailplanes Motor Gliders and flying Ultralights.

The Lumby Valley is known by many pilots the world over as a great place to get high and race around triangle courses because of the excellent consistent lift and generally low valley winds.

The town of Lumby has been host to more than 10 national soaring championships over the years.
The valleys many beautiful lakes, and beaches and warm summer temperatures offer a seductive attraction for float plane pilots of all types.

Raven Aviation Ltd. are dealers for Rotax engines and parts, Wills Wing Hang Gliders, Parachutes, Harnesses, Helmets, North Wing Hang Gliders, North Wing motorized trikes, Rotax engines, GSC propellers, Icom radios and usually have a good supply of used Hang Gliders and various Ultralights on consignment for quick sale.

Freedom Flight Park has several private Ultralight runways over 1000 feet and a new 2000 foot private main runway. This allows more options for Scooter Towing and Aero Towing and better landings for heavier aircraft on the new improved grass strip.
