Sosa Gliding Club - Hamilton: $70 for One Introductory Glider Flight at Sosa Gliding Club in Hamilton ($140 Value)

From catapulting flaming soldiers over castle walls to sitting on active geysers, humans have long been fixated on flying through the air. Absorb the wonderment of flight with today’s Groupon: for $70, you get one introductory glider flight at Sosa Gliding Club in Hamilton (a $140 value, including HST).

Sosa Gliding Club, a spot for airborne recreation since 1948, dispatches aspiring cloud surfers on piloted sky cruises in its fleet of nonmotorized two-seat aircrafts. After launching from one of three grass runways at the Rockton Airport trailing a powered aircraft, gliders holding patrons and a seasoned Sosa pilot release from tow ropes and embark on an effortless flight through the firmament. During the 20- to 30-minute flight, two-seaters soar above the Southern Ontario countryside, providing views of Cambridge, the African Lion Safari, and crop circles resembling Sir Winston Churchill. Buoyant duos cruise their glider to a gentle bird-like landing, at which point customers receive a certificate of achievement and a CD about flying. Sosa Gliding Club furnishes flights depending on weather conditions such as rain and meatball storms.

Sosa Gliding Club

At Sosa Gliding Club, instructors and tow pilots don't receive paychecks; they teach others simply to share the joy of gliding. And since the club owns the Rockton Airport-which has two grass runways, a fleet of single- and two-seat gliders, and a clubhouse-they can pass on their knowledge through ground courses. Through cross-country soaring classes, for instance, they teach potential pilots to soar in gliders, finding invisible rising air currents to carry them upward rather than simply gliding the aircraft to the ground. Once students achieve basic piloting prowess, club instructors can then give aerobatic instruction, showing students how to perform slow rolls, loops, and wingovers during adrenaline-pumping staring contests with eagles.
