$89 for 30-Minute High-Performance Glider Flight ($151 Value)

A small plane lifts gliders into the air before releasing them to sail over the New Mexico desert. Then passengers ride the high-performance Grob 103 fiberglass glider through thermal-air columns, and pilots turn over cockpit controls to passengers for a few minutes. Customers are advised to call ahead one week in advance to schedule a flight.

Sundance Aviation

At Sundance Aviation, shimmering fiberglass gliders soar up to 18,000 feet above see level as they cruise over the New Mexico desert. Pilots navigate gliders such as the modern fiberglass Grob 103 high above the air, riding thermal in the summer and mountain wave lifts in the winter. Pilots offer easy-going, scenic tours as well as more acrobatic flights that take passengers on a series of multiple loops, wing-overs, chandelles, and deep stalls.

Customer Reviews

The experience was awesome, getting to control the plane gave a feel for how complicated it is to control this simple craft. It was very much worth the price. The crew were also great. The pilot that flew with me was very good with flight instruction and encouraging. I definitely recommend trying this.
