Get a bird’s-eye-view of Virginia’s spectacular landscape on a peaceful glider ride! It's the perfect flying experience for those new to aerial adventures, or thrill seekers looking for a quiet ride among the clouds.
Your adventure starts at the airport, where you'll meet your pilot, receive a short briefing on the experience and any safety points. This is the perfect time to ask any questions or calm any nerves before lifting off for your time among the clouds. All passengers will be fitted with a parachute pack, your guide/captain can help with set up and answer any questions on the function of the parachute. After all is set, you’ll climb into the cockpit of a sailplane, an engine-less aerial vehicle designed to take advantage of air currents. You'll lift off, being towed up into the skies by an expert pilot. There are varying heights that you can be taken to, which will affect the duration of your flight. How high are you willing to go?
Once your altitude is reached, you’ll disconnect from the tow plane and enjoy a smooth, silent glide! This 20-40 minute flying experience offers the most peaceful, serene adventure in the skies. You’ll have ample time to capture awe-inspiring photographs of the panoramic landscape. Sail away from your earthly troubles and get a fresh perspective, suspended in the sky, soaring through the land of the birds. You may even spot some of these fellow flyers as you glide along!
Challenge the limits of your courage with a gravity-defying Glider Ride Flight Experience!
