My lovely wife, Jane, tries her hand at the controls---a simple system of pulling down on one side or the other to turn, bleed air, or gain lift. Her pilot, Steve Stackable, has been doing tandem flying since 1978. He's flown over 8,500 hours in hang gliders, paragliders, and other ultralights. He is one of a select few who have done a hang glider drop from a hot air balloon.
