Arranging a flight time was difficult because of frequent storms. Upon arrival on agreed date/time, we had to wait an hour past appointment time. We were not informed that the sailplane's rear seat was going to be so cramped and uncomfortable (we were told, however, that it would be a "tight fit"). The voucher stated a 30 minute ride, but our up time was only about 20 minutes, ground to ground. Perhaps a solo ride would have been OK on a nice day.

The staff there was awesome with my 6 year daughter on her first ride! The facility may not look like much, but it is run well by people who want you have a fun but safe experience. Small warning to people my size (6' 4"). Probably an experience you want to do by yourself, given the limited leg space. If you are 6 years old, plenty of space to laugh and be amazed. Special thanks to Jason, our pilot, who made it look easy....

Had a great time at the Gliderport. Gave this to my husband for Christmas and I was not crazy about going but it was amazing. We had a very informative guide which really helped. Looking forward to the next time.

Well informed and courteous pilot. The ride was great (too short). We both enjoyed it completely.

From Our Editors

The pilot and passengers soar noiselessly over the Tennessee countryside—casting their shadow on hills, ridges, and along the banks of the Hiwassee River. At heights of several thousand feet, the CFIG-certified pilot-instructors at Chilhowee Gliderport let passengers experience a motor-less, silent journey via natural thermals, ridge-lift currents, and winds from political speeches that occur year-round. FAA-certified pilots at the helm of Pawnee tow planes pull gliders to the desired height, where pilots introduce passengers to bird's-eye views. The gliderport also holds seasonal events such as fall-color flights and summer flight camps.
