Scenic Sailplane Rides

CALL NOW to Schedule!

Toll Free 866-762-7875

We offer three rides for 1 or 2 passengers. Prices start at just $139. Imagine the thrill of soaring silently above the high Sierra, looking down from your eagle's eye view at the lakes and towns surrounding Lake Tahoe. A professional glider pilot, certified by the Federal Aviation Administration, will introduce you to the joys of soaring**.

After being towed into the air, your pilot will release from the tow plane, and your glider will silently ride the rising currents of air for which Truckee is world famous. Truly, few experiences can compare with soaring motor-less high above the mountain range, drinking in the fabulous views and flying like an eagle. Frequently, we may climb as high as 12,000' or more as we ply the mountain air currents. The view is spectacular regardless of which of our three rides you select. We operate both 1 and 2 passenger gliders.

All Rides can also be purchased as Gift Certificates.
