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.
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.
What is the best time to fly?
Earlier flights between 11:00am and 3:00pm are the smoothest. During the heat of the day there is more unstable air which means it is probably better soaring, but bumpier!
How far away is Warner Springs from Los Angeles?
Plan on about 2 hours.
