"I was glad the I chose Foothills Flight Park to learn
to hangglide. Brad Gryder was very proffessional and I was
impressed with his skill and confidence. I will be back
for more lessons!"
I had 3 tandem lessons with Foothills Flight Park's new
tandem instructor Ron Knight on Saturday morning (8-17-2002). He
has been teaching at Lookout Mountain for the past several
years. I was very impressed with him. He is constantly talking;
telling you what is happening, what you need to do, what you are
doing right, what you are doing wrong, and how to do it better.
I felt like I came a long way in only 3 flights. He is good
about letting the student do the flying even if making mistakes,
but is ready to take over when needed.
When Brad first told me
about a new tandem instructor, I was concerned about doing a
tandem with (trusting my life with) a person I hadn't even met
yet. I know Brad is very conservative and safety oriented, but I
didn't know about Ron. I am glad to report that Ron is also very
safety oriented. I have to say emphatically that Ron is a great
asset to Foothills Flight Park and I hope he will be around for
a long time to come.

I'll echo the praise for Ron's
instruction. I went through much of my instruction at LMFP with
Ron and was impressed by his attentiveness to proper flying
then. He has a wealth of flying experience added to a great
teaching personality, plus knowledge of accurate, modern
I started my aerotow training recently and
learned much again with Ron. Coupled with Brad's excellent
knowledge, Ron and Brad should turn the Foothills Flight Park
into Foothills Flight School. Want to flatten the learning
