Everything was perfect. It was such an amazing experience, with such beautiful sites to see from an unique perspective, as if I was the pilot.

Priceless Memories! A must do experience for those who enjoy flying like a bird in the sky. Don is an excellent pilot & has excellent interaction skills & allows you to pilot the plane. Our family of 8 took rides & everyone felt the "wow" factor from start to finish. We also got to ride along in the gator as they pulled the glider to the runway & the plane being pulled off the runway. I would definitely encourage you to add Don & his Team from Cross Country Soaring in Faribault to your bucket list. THANKS DON!

Wow! Pilot Don took me on a great joy ride. His discussion while in the air (remember no engine means it is quiet) made the ride even better. Take advantage of this!

Weather conditions affect the ability to soar so a scheduled date may need to be rescheduled. However, if you're aware of that and ca be patient if needed, the experience is more than worth it!! Don and his staff are excellent. Highly recommend!!!!!!!

From Our Editors

Cross Country Soaring owner Don Ingraham brings more than 4,000 airborne hours of experience to his sailplanes' controls, maneuvering the engineless crafts through the air with bird-like agility. Tow planes loft each passenger flight airborne, sending planes thousands of feet up into the sky before leaving pilots and their guests gliding through the atmosphere without the noisy distraction of a typical flight. Each flight is different—sailplanes may gain altitude in thermal updrafts before bottoming out stomachs with daring dives. Picnic tables and couches cluster around the hangar, giving friends and family a comfortable place to watch soaring flights. Students eager to earn their own glider rating and fly solo can take advantage of Cross Country Soaring's experienced instructors, learning the ropes under the hawk-like eyes of seasoned pros.
