More detailed description >


After climbing to nearly 1 mile above sea level you hear the click of the tow rope being released from your glider.

The tow plane disappears out of sight and you are left with only the sound of the wind as you experience flying in its purest form.

Enjoy panoramic views of Lake Henshaw, the beautiful San Jose Valley and surrounding mountains, including Hot Springs Peak and the Palomar mountains.

An incredible experience you will both be talking about for years to come.

View FAQ's >

  1. Is it safe?
    Yes! All flights are flown by FAA Certified Commercial pilots.  It is also extremely safe since the sailplane carries no fuel or a heavy engine, and is designed to land in unimproved fields.
  2. What are the ages to fly?
    There is no minimum age, however if a child is too young he/she will not appreciate it.  Usually at 4 or 5 years old is when the ride becomes more appreciated. 
  3. What is the best time to fly?
    Earlier flights between 11:00 AM-3:00 PM are the smoothest. During the heat of the day there is more unstable air which means it is probably better soaring, but bumpier!

"Booking was easy, scheduling was easy. I got my first choice time. We were greeted by friendly staff. We arrived early, and they were able to get us in the plane early. The pilot was friendly and explained things to my pilot-boyfriend. Overall, we both had an amazing time. It was a great surprise for my boyfriend's birthday, and we will be back! "
