Jake, there are some Korean guys who have what they called 'ultralights' (hang gliders with basically a lawnmower motor on them) in our old town, Danyang. There's a dirt runway by the river in the town. You should see if those guys know about it. Danyang is about 2hrs driving from Daejeon, so I am assuming that's probably too far to fly, but even if so, let those guys know about it if they didn't already. I went up for about 30 minutes last spring and it was BEAUTIFUL! Danyang is a great place to do that. People also paraglide off the highest peak in town (you can drive to the top).
Oh, and don't talk to Kris about this b/c you could probably talk him into BUYING one, let alone taking a course and we already spend too much money on climbing gear alone.
