What To Wear
Wear comfortable clothing appropriate for weather conditions. The temperature in the sailplane is about the same as it is on the ground.

For this experience, our partners are taking additional measures to ensure that they help prevent the potential spread of COVID-19. They are providing staff members and customers with hand sanitizer and wipes to use regularly throughout the day. Our partners kindly ask that all participants wear a mask for the duration of their time at the facility, and that guests wait outside of their office to avoid clustering together indoors. These Covid-19 safety measures are subject to change.

Is it safe?
All of the pilots are FAA Certified Commercial Pilots and have thousands of hours of flight time. All rides are given in high performance sailplanes, which are as large as airplanes and not to be confused with small, lightweight hang gliders.
What if it is cancelled due to bad weather?
If the pilot cancels your flight due to inclement weather conditions, you will reschedule directly with the experience provider.
Are there any physical restrictions?

The combined weight of the passengers may not exceed 300 lbs and passengers must fit into a seat equivalent in size to 1.5 car seats.

Are there any age restrictions?
Participants under 18 years old must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to sign a release of liability waiver. Participants under the age of 10 must be accompanied by an adult in the glider.
