Players of Sons of the Forest can cut down their travel time significantly by utilizing the Hang Glider. By jumping from a high enough height, players can catch the wind and take advantage of the glider to reach far-off destinations much faster than on foot.

So far, there is one place you can find a Hang Glider Sons on the Forest, which is marked on the map above.

Head to the western section of the game map, where snow covers the mountains. Refer to the image provided as a guide. After reaching the summit of the peak, you’ll see two red tents that indicate that you are on the right track. Move ahead to these red tents, and look down at the cliff edge to find Hang Glider. Once found, you can interact with it and use it to fly freely and quickly from a high distance.

The major problem with the Hang Glider is its size. It’s too long to conveniently fit in a backpack, meaning that if you’d like to use it at a later date, you must schlep it around on your shoulder. In order to get the most value out of it, the glider will need to be used immediately upon acquisition.
