Take a Flight into the Pale Blue Skies of San Antonio!
Many Sailplane pilots say it is practically impossible to put into words the experience of a Glider flight. They all agree that it is a challenge, it is thrilling, and it is peaceful. It is an absolute escape from the stress and worries of everyday life.
One of the challenges is Mother Nature and what she may or may not provide to stay aloft. The thrill is when the Glider is launched by another plane, is separated from it, and the lift is experienced. The peace comes with the silence of Gliding in the infinite sky, knowing this is as close as you can get to flying like a bird.
Glider Sailplane Rides!
A Glider Ride is a great way to see scenery in a dramatic new way. Because the Glider travels relatively slowly, you get a chance to see fabulous topographical details and beautiful landscapes. The perspective of the earth – deserts, forests, mountains, oceans and waterways – is stunningly unique.
There are Glider Rides that include aerobatic rolls, dives, and loops. You probably won't want to try that on your first Glider Ride, but it is certainly a thrillseeker's dream. An FAA certified and experienced aerobic pilot will show you the experience of a lifetime with your heart in your throat.
