What To Wear

For this experience, our partners are taking added measures to ensure that they help prevent the potential spread of COVID-19. They are happy to wear a mask while in the aircraft with you, and encourage guests to do the same. As the aircraft is open-air, participants will not be in a confined space. Our partners kindly ask that no one who has been in a large group setting attend, and that all guests who are feeling unwell please reschedule their experience. These Covid-19 safety measures are subject to change.

Is this safe?
Yes! For this experience, you will be learning to fly and soar in a Light Sport Aircraft known as a Trike. These aircraft are subject to strict FAA regulations and are extremely safe. In fact, these are some of the safest aircrafts out there because, in the unlikely event of engine failure, they can be flown as a hang glider!
When is the best time to fly?
The summer months (June-September) are best for flying and the best time of day is during the mornings and evenings when the wind is typically calmer.
How high will we fly?
Typical cruising altitude for this experience is 1,500 feet, but you can fly as low as 500 feet and even reach altitudes of 5,000 feet. In an open cockpit, the views are incomparable!
Is this experience weather dependent?
Yes, Light Sport Aircraft are susceptible to wind. We always recommend contacting your pilot on the day of your experience if you have any concerns regarding weather. In the event your flight is cancelled due to weather you can reschedule directly with your pilot.
