I took my son there for his 14th birthday present, several years ago and he got a great ride, that lasted over an hour. We went during the summer, in the morning with very little wind. The ground heated up and gave rise to some good thermals that gave him extra lift, extending his flight time. Don't go in the... More

What a peaceful and beautiful experience. Nothing compares to flying without an engine, it is so smooth and peaceful. All you hear is the air going by and the 360 degree view is breathtaking. The flight is difficult to explain without experiencing it. The business is operated by two professional pilots who fly the gliders as a side hobby. They... More

If you want to feel what it's like to fly in an airplane without the noise of its engine, you gotta fly a glider! It's a fun way to have a nice calm flight while enjoying the view. Steve is an awesome manager and always gives good advice! His Staffed pilots, Steve and Angel, are awesome too!!

I planned my buddy's bachelor party and we took 5 of us out here to do some gliding. The bachelor had no idea what we were going to do and was pretty shocked/excited when we pulled in. The gliding experience itself was ridiculously fun. Steve did some rollercoaster tricks with us and he will even let you fly the glider... More

We called and made an appointment with Steve for 1pm ride two days before our ride. He asked that if we couldn't make it, to please call and let him know. We drove from Pompano Beach to Homestead, a 2 1/2 hour trip through Miami traffic. We waited 1 1/4 hours and called several times and only got voice mail.... More

I can confirm the previous reviews. Having last gone gliding 40 yrs previously in WW2 wood and fabric gliders, this was an awesome experience. Instructions took me right to the edge of the airfield where Miami Gliders is based. Tow launch to 3,500 feet and then spectacular views over Miami and the Everglades. 30-40 minute flight - great value and... More

I had huge fun with Steve and John at Miami Gliders. I chose the 5200 ft tow and it was worth every cent. Even though the weather wasn't that favorable for soaring, Steve had no trouble filling the flight with acrobatics, sightseeing, information and pure entertainment. I've flown everything from hang gliders to Jet Ranges and this ranks with the... More

My wife and I took turns going up in 2 seat gliders - the first time for us mid-50's (ok, maybe I no longer qualify for mid-50's) terrified of heights people. The flights were AWESOME! I went first so I couldn't chicken out after my wife went up. We elected the 3000 ft.altitude flight (2000 and 1 mile were also... More
