Luke and Crissy over the Tetons

A unique way of viewing Teton Valley

“Do you like roller coasters?” Luke Waters asked me. He was piloting a powered
hang glider in the air above Targhee Village Golf Course and I was tucked behind
him, peering back toward the crest of the Tetons where we had just been. I
replied via the radio headset that sure, I like roller coasters. He performed a
stall that caused the glider to sink, no longer buoyed by air, then did a
wingover to the left and right. The g-force of swooping sideways with the wings
perpendicular to the ground was more exciting than any roller coaster.

Luke and his wife Crissy started Teton Hang Gliding in 2017. Luke had worked for
every scenic flight outfit on both sides of the Tetons and wanted to strike out
on his own. While Crissy and Luke are both experienced non-motorized hang glider
pilots, they opted to do commercial flights on a powered hang glider, also
called a trike, because it’s easier logistically; with a motor, the glider
doesn’t require heights or a tow to take off. The open cockpit of the trike
gives passengers an unrestricted view of the valley and mountains, and is great
for photographers.

Luke Waters, hang glider pilot, tug pilot, previous owner of
Sonora Wings, worked with Bart and Tiki at Cowboy Up in Jackson, Wyoming.
