There are essentially two types of customers here: resident and snowbird glider pilots who fly their own aircraft, and not-yet pilots who take an introductory flight. It is a delight for both. But, I'll focus on the visitor, because most glider pilots are already familiar...More

This is a beautiful airfield, with a comfortable clubhouse (and small swimming pool) and a commercial organisation that is very well run: lots of towplanes, plenty of options for glider rides and some great staff.

Took a grinder ride with Rich Owen. Professional as they come. My young children enjoyed watching the planes take off. Worth the drive out there.

Went out to see Seminole Lake - while management has changed, they have a very long history in the gliding community. That said, it is a glider pilot place - not a set up for just roving tourists. The review that said they were dangerous...More

My pilot showed up late, and unaware that there was a flight scheduled for him. The owner can barely speak english and was unapologetic without offering any kind of refund or discount. The pilot made some comments about how frustrated he was with the organization...More

Overall it was a nice experience! Going up in the glider and soaring through the clouds was pretty awesome. Our pilot did a couple of tight turns, but no acrobatics. If you are looking to learn something about flying a glider then sign up for...More
