This introductory flight will introduce you to the exciting world of motor-less flight and give you the chance to pilot the plane. When you arrive at the airport, you will meet your FAA Certified Flight Instructor. Your instructor will introduce you to your plane and help you get strapped in.
Next, you take to the sky! Gliders being motor-less, they rely upon tow planes to take them up to altitude. You have the choice of being towed to either 3,000, 4,000, or 5,000 ft. The higher you go, the more time you will have to man the controls! Once at altitude, you will detach from your tow plane. While in the air, your instructor will teach you basic flight maneuvers and give you the chance to take the controls!
Flight times will vary depending on air conditions and the tow altitude. In general, a 3,000 ft tow will result in approximately 15-20 minutes of flight. If you choose to go to 4,000 ft, you will enjoy about 25-30 minutes of flight. For a 5,000 ft tow, you'll be in the air for approximately 30-40 minutes.
As you navigate the warm pockets of air, don't forget to soak in the incredible views and enjoy your experience. You are welcome to pass the controls back to your pilot if you'd just like to enjoy the ride as well! Either way, this is an experience you will never forget!
What To Wear
Participants must be at least 12 years old and weigh a minimum of 90 pounds. The pilot will evaluate every child under the age of 18 years old on a case by case basis and may decide it is best they just ride rather than take the controls. Don't worry though, it's a gorgeous and thrilling ride!
Please also note that all participants must weigh less than 242 pounds.
