Enjoy the feeling of floating on air

with only the sound of the wind, the view of the mountains around you, and the river valley below. Come take a flight you will always remember. You might even share the sky with a hawk or an eagle!

Our experienced commercial pilots will custom design your flight to fit your desires.

When you arrive at the airport on your flight day, you will be escorted to the glider staging area and introduced to your pilot, who will custom design your flight to match your desires and the weather conditions.  

At flight time you will be assisted into the glider and rolled onto the runway where the pilot, ground crew, and tow pilot will coordinate the launch procedures. The tow plane will launch the glider and cruise to soaring altitude where your pilot will release the tow rope.

 

Free from the sound or power of engines, you will experience a grand view of the snow capped mountains, river valleys, verdant orchards and countryside that make the Hood River valley a truly unique and breathtaking place to soar.
