Started in 1967, Moyes Delta Gliders was a Company solely dedicated to hang gliding.

 

Bill Bennett and his partner Bill Moyes worked improvents into the Rogallo tow kites and Moyes towed to 1000 feet in 1967. After the towboat ran into a sand bar one day and the kite gently glided down, they began to deliberatelycut loose and experiment with untethered flight. This led the skiers up mountain sides where they made ski launches, sometimes gliding as far as five miles.
 
Bennett went to the USA in 1969 and began a tou of exhabitions which included flying over the Golden Gate Bridge to land on Alkatraz, and, on July 4th, circling the Statue of Liberty. American fliers were still using the Lilienthal-type parallel bars and hanging by their armpits but Bennett brought with him a trapeze style control bar and swinging seat.
 
After the success of his tour he settled down in LA and began to manufacture and promote hang gliders to the growing market in Southern California.
