Every take off in the world has a take off area and an official landing field, to be found within an easy gliding distance of the take off. At Monte Cucco we have an extra field where we can land, exactly the same place from where we take off. This is called a top landing. For many pilots, both tandem and solo pilots, this is a great option. It allows us to fly for a while and then come back to the top landing, have a break, have a chat with friends and family, go for a small bite to eat, or just relax and then take off again without having the need to rebuild the hang glider. An extra bonus is that we stay out of the heat in the valley below so we do our utmost to top land. For the tandem flights if conditions allow the beauty of top landing is that you, the passenger, are reunited immediately with your frineds and family, then they are able to fly straight after you.
