Power Glider Tours
When in the passenger seat of Power Glider Tours' small aircraft, the Golden Gate Bridge looks as if it could fit in the palm of your hand. The glider's windows let passengers see Monterey Bay, Napa, and San Francisco in ways they never have before, save for the one time the city forgot to pay its gravity bills. It's a powerful moment, and one made more so by the lack of engine noise. While it uses an engine for take off and landing at Palo Alto Airport, Power Glider Tours' aircraft allows pilots to switch off the power during flights, creating an opportunity for a single passenger to experience serene glides over the likes of Stanford University, Half Moon Bay, and Alcatraz.
