Is it safe?
Yes! All flights are flown by FAA Certified Commercial pilots. The sailplane does not carry fuel or a heavy engine and is designed to land in unimproved fields.
What are the ages to fly?
Although there are no age requirements, this flight is not recommended for children under the age of 5.
What is the best time to fly?
Flights between 11:00 AM and 3:00 PM are often the smoothest. During the heat of the day there is more unstable air which means better soaring, but bumpier!
