Hang gliders have the chance to really fly. Unlike being in a plane,
hang gliding allows you to get a birdís eye view of the world. If
youíre interested in hang gliding, youíll know that the necessary
equipment doesnít come cheap. Luckily for you, there are sponsors out
there who can assist you in hang gliding. Since hang gliding is often
seen as a tourist sport, contacting those involved in tourism is a
logical place to start. There are other ways to get hang gliding
sponsorship. Just look at the three tips below.
Tourist offices of popular cities are a good place to start looking for
sponsorships. All tourist offices have flyers of local businesses and
they usually display these items for free. Contact the tourist office
and ask if you can leave flyers about
hang gliding in their office. They might also be able to tell you
who would be willing to sponsor you.
Hang gliding schools often need qualified
instructors. If youíve taken enough
lessons and racked up enough hang gliding hours, you might be able
to qualify. Talk to the schools and ask what requirements must be met
for you to become an instructor. Once youíve done that, then you will
be able to teach people and take them up for a flight.
serious hang gliders often have the inside scoop on where to find
sponsors. From schools to manufacturers to individuals, they might be
able to trade information with you. Make sure to keep all business
cards you get and keep in regular contact with anyone who is or might be
a potential sponsor.
If this sounds like something that interests you, consider contacting
