  • Here's your chance to experience firsthand the beauty and amazement of motorless flight!

    First your Super Blanik L23 glider, since it lacks an engine, will be towed by our tow-plane, a Piper Pawnee, to the desired altitude.

    Then, you'll feel the tow-rope release as your glider takes to the thermals - columns of rising air created by the heating of the Earth's surface.

    Surrounded by a clear canopy and seated next to an experienced pilot, you can simply relax and watch the world glide by.

    Just imagine yourself gliding effortlessly, silently, peacefully high above the world with barely a sound to disturb you.

    The finest glider experience is waiting for you high above Southern Florida!
