Take an Introductory Glider Flight

A glider flight is a thrilling experience.  Let one of our FAA-certified commercial pilots or FAA-certified instructors take you up in one of our two-place sailplanes.  You will sit in the front seat of the glider and your pilot will sit in the back seat.  A towrope will connect the glider to the towplane and the towplane will tow the glider aloft.  Once a proper altitude has been reached, your pilot will release the towrope.

scheduling a ride

We fly intro rides on Saturday and Sunday, weather and other factors permitting. We recommend scheduling your ride in advance by calling during the week:

  • (979) 398-5827
  • If it is already the weekend, call the field instead at (979) 478-2323.

Demo/Introductory rides last about 20 to 30 minutes and cost:
        $90 if you are 21 or older.
        $60 for under 21.
Riders must weigh under 240 pounds and at least approximately 75 pounds. The combined weight of rider and pilot cannot exceed 404 pounds. Riders must be mature enough not to touch the dual flight controls in the glider.  A liability waiver must be signed by the rider before the flight or by a parent or guardian if the rider is under 18 years of age. Tall riders (taller than about 6' 3") may find the glider a tight fit.
