When is the best time to fly?
Flights between 11:00 AM and 3:00 PM are often the smoothest. During the heat of the day there is more unstable air which means better soaring, but bumpier!

“It was a surprise birthday experience for my husband. When we arrived, we were greeted and quickly set up for the glider experience with the incredibly professional and entertaining pilot instructor, George. From take off to landing and all the steps before and after, we had the best experience! Thank you!”
“Great experience! ”
