Bay Area Glider Rides
Bay Area Glider Rides's gliders fly companionably next to hawks and eagles, reaching elevations of a mile or more as they soar over the Diablo Range, Monterey Bay, and other local landmarks. A certified pilot helms each ride, which can fit one or two passengers, but those who wish to fly solo also can obtain personal glider-pilot licenses at the facility's flight school.
