My Dad has always wanted to go for a glider ride. So he asked for this for his birthday. I liked the location and the info I had read about Crazy Creek on line and so booked a reservation. He absolutely loved doing this and has continued to tell everyone he knows about his flight. It has fulfilled this Dream.... More

I often have guests staying at my B&B, Backyard Garden Oasis, who go on a glider ride. Every one comes back telling me of their great experience and simply exuding enthusiasm. What a great opportunity to early an eagle-eyed view of Northern California Wine Country

Gliding was something I've wanted to do for a long time, but it took a suggestion from my wife to actually follow through on this desire. She wanted something "different" for her birthday and her powered glider ride in Cabo triggered a wish to do something similar. Following up on this suggestion, I found Crazy Creek A A by a... More

First, my expectations for this was set pretty high. As somewhat of an adrenaline junkie, I like trying thing that make some be go "say what!". So when I told my friends that we going gliding, I got the "say what" from some of them. Second, all my expectations for this were greatly exceeded. You will not find better hosts... More

If you have ever thought about going on a glider ride go here! Jim and Connie are really wonderful people, and they take you on a most amazing ride! Take the longest ride they offer, because the time just flies by! We enjoyed every minute of it! Bob and Linda, San Luis Obispo, Ca.

I want to thank Jim & Connie for such a warm welcome & a fantastic afternoon of adventure. We started with Jim getting a feel for my experience level and then directly into some mild ground school. We ran through an aircaft familiarization briefing, safety check, and we were off. Jim is a fantastic intructor and I gained an insight... More

Along with the expert pilot and glider experience, Crazy Creek (Connie and Jim) needs to be commended for their personal touch. We had a great time and have raved about the experience to all of our friends. I'm an avid bird watcher and on that gliding day, I was able to feel like one of my feathered friends...catching a thermal... More

For the bold, thrill-seekers out there, this is a must-stop on your travels through wine country. Certainly, if you prefer a lazy, calm glide through the air I'm sure you could request it but the real fun comes when you let the pilot take a few turns, dips and upside down tricks to get your heart pumping. Rides range from... More
