  • Soaring Flight Orientation and 3,000 Foot Sight Seeing Sail Plane Ride

Sky Soaring Glider Club

The tow plane’s propeller starts to spin, and rapidly disappears into a dizzying vortex. Immediately the plane lurches forward, causing the towline that connects it to the two seat glider behind it to tighten and begin hauling the engineless aircraft down the 2,600-foot grass runway. The pair picks up speed until the forward plane lifts off the ground and into the great expanse of blue above it, the glider still following obediently. When they reach the intended altitude, the glider releases the towline, allowing the glider to soar effortlessly without the help of fuel, which it can do for hours.

The all-volunteer staff of FAA-certified instructors and tow pilots at Sky Soaring Glider Club construct such a scene for students and joy riders alike each week. Including the single seater SGS 1-34, the crew operates a fleet of six gliders, using them for everything from student-training runs and flights with members. When not at the controls of a glider’s avionics instruments, the staff conducts ground instruction at its hanger and classroom near their own privately owned airport.

Making a reservation is a pain? We don't make reservations because we are dependent on good weather for safe and enjoyable flying. To book your flight you call me on Friday and I let you know if we are going to be flying on Saturday or Sunday.
