The Deal

C$149 for a glider-flight package (a C$245 value)

  • 30-minute ridge flight
  • HD video of flight with a 4GB reusable USB key

A certified pilot tows a two-seat glider up to 4,000 feet in the air before cutting ties and letting the craft gently float along the ridge line of the scenic Alberni Valley, soaring far above Vancouver Island’s rugged coastline. A Transport Canada–licensed pilot controls the craft from the back seat, allowing the passenger to lie back and enjoy views of the lakes, farmland, and mountains dotting the valley. An HD camera mounted in the aircraft records the entire journey, offering a plane’s-eye view or a recording of the passenger. Flights last approximately 30 minutes.
