Finger Lakes Aerosport Park (FLAP) is part of Long Acre Farms, with a small airfield north of Macedon. They provide hang gliding via aerotowing - the glider is towed behind an ultralight aircraft to an altitude of around 2000 ft, where it is released. The glider can then take advantage of [WWW]thermals to climb even higher. Experienced flyers can launch off of wheeled carts, or those new to the sport can ride tandem with an instructor, using a glider with landing gear. FLAP is the only aerotow hang gliding park in NY.
