The Simplest Flying Machine

Record #:
Where the Wright Brothers once flew, hang gliders now soar from Jockey's Ridge on the Outer Banks. In all began in 1974 when John Harris opened Kitty Hawk Kites in the garage of the old Nags Head Casino. Now, forty-one years later, there are fifteen retail stores along the state's coastline with plans to open more across the Southeast. Besides the flying school at Nags Head, he has another in New Hampshire, and he has taught over half a million people how to fly.
