Las Vegas Glider Rides

The skilled pilots and instructors at Las Vegas Glider Rides with more than 8,500 combined hours and 42 years of experience have accompanied more than 6,000 passengers on flights over Nevada’s scenic desert landscapes. After they’re towed aloft behind planes via 200-foot cables or launched via European-style winch, gliders cut loose and set sail for a leisure trip, flying lesson, or acrobatic thrill ride with a seasoned glider pilot. Flyers can also memorialize their trips with an edited 7.5-minute video featuring preshot wing and tail angles and in-cockpit footage of impromptu aerial drag races with passing pterodactyls.
