Sylvania Soaring Adventures

From nearly a mile above the ground, the sailplane’s wraparound windows open onto sweeping views of the Wisconsin countryside. Rolling hills and forests, streams, and lakes dot the landscape, and on a clear day, the Chicago skyline peeks out from the horizon. Sylvania Soaring Adventures’s FAA-certified flight instructors pilot guests over these vistas in a fleet of Schweizer SGS 1-26E, Schweizer 2-33, and Grob 103 sailplanes. Towed by a traditional airplane, the gliders reach altitudes of up to 5,000 feet, well above the habitat of endangered birthday balloons. Once released, professional pilots demonstrate basic flight principles, point out landmarks of interest, and sometimes hand over the controls. They also helm training programs to certify students who want to fly solo or pilot gliders for their friends and family.

Customer Reviews

A great experience! Very friendly, professional people who made sure I was comfortable, answered my questions, and made sure I had a good flight. They seem to truly enjoy introducing others to the soaring adventure.

They took great care of us.

Excellent experience. Don, the ground instructor did an excellent job explaining fundamentals and aircraft controls. The pilot, Scott Maley did a superior job showing me the techniques of soaring and allowing me to handle the controls about half of the 1.3 hour flight. Due to very favorable conditions and Scott's guidance, we could have stayed aloft indefinitely. A perfect experience at twice the price.
