More detailed description >

Description:
Soar in silence on a breathtaking flight and let your cares melt away as you experience the purest form of flying possible in a motor-less sailplane.

You'll start with a short briefing session so that you'll know what to expect before climbing aboard the glider with your expert instructor.

Next you'll take to the sky in a motor glider or a tow glider which will be towed by a light aircraft to 4,000 feet. The aircraft peels away and you're free to soar and circle lazily in the thermal currents!

You'll enjoy breathtaking views of Texas Hill Country below you and the sky around you. Unforgettable.

"A little disappointed that it was a motor glider - thought it would be a non-motorized glider. Also, no champagne toast."
