More detailed description >

Soar in silence on a breathtaking flight and let your cares melt away as you experience the purest form of flying possible in a sailplane.

You'll start with a short briefing session so that you'll know what to expect before climbing aboard the glider with your expert instructor.

Next you'll take to the sky in a motor glider until you reach 4,000 feet. The motor will then be turned off and you'll be free to soar and circle lazily in the thermal currents!

You'll enjoy breathtaking views of Texas Hill Country below you and the sky around you. Unforgettable.

"A little disappointed that it was a motor glider - thought it would be a non-motorized glider. Also, no champagne toast."
