Owner description: Crazy Creek Air Adventures has been providing unique, exhilarating adventure ride experiences for over 40 years. We launch from our home at the Middletown Gliderport, in Lake County, situated in the greater Napa Valley Wine Country.Incredible views and colorful rural vistas showcase vineyards, the largest natural fresh water lake in California, geothermal steam clouds produced by nearby geysers, and even the remnants of an ancient volcano.Soar above it all in a sleek glider plane. Flying conditions are superb year-round. Get away from it all as you soar high above the panoramic scenery, with a breathtaking view few others can enjoy. It’s the Adventure of a Lifetime, something you will be talking about for years to come! Call for reservations.

This glider ride with Connie and Jim was a highlight of our trip to Wine Country, CA and Northern California. It's so smooth and peaceful and lovely with a couple of thrills thrown in for good measure... We highly recommend the full 40 minute tour!

Our group of 7 all agree that this was one of the very best outings we've ever experienced! Owners Jim and Connie were simply amazing. So helpful and accomodating with the coordination of our bbq picnic, and their friendliness really made this experience with them a "family affair". They both were the glider pilots and was able to "customize" each flight to the desire of the passenger!(some of us had some real exciting loops and fly bys) The flights were long enough to enjoy the beautiful scenery in Lake county and each of them pointed out some specific sites to appreciate(lakes, golf courses, mountain ranges etc.) Patrick was the "tow pilot" and not only did a fantastic job but was just as friendly and happy as were Jim and Connie. He never stopped getting us in the air one after the other until we all had our "air time".
Overall experience a ceretain 10! I encourage anyone of all ages to consider this fantastic opportunity.

About a fifty minute drive from Yountville. Take the motion sickness meds before you go because the drive is winding and the flight may cause some nausea, too.

Connie and Jim are gracious and accommodating.

Once they were airborne, our boys asked, "How long have you been doing this?". Connie replied, "About a week, but I think I have the hang of it!".

Well worth it.

$200 for a twenty minute flight for two.

I had often thought I would like to consider a glider ride. it wasn't until my daughter and granddaughter (10) visited from AZ that we decided to add this adventure to our 'bucket list' for the week of activities. What an amazing experience - I'm so glad we did it. Now I truely know what it feels like to take flight soundlessly and circle gently supported by the air currents. You can't see them and you can't even tell how far up the air is lifting you until your pilot reminds you to check the instruments. This is the place where you can experience soaring like the graceful big birds in the sky. You should try it al least one. Watch out - you might get addicted to the sport. BTW, Connie was a fantastic pilot.
