“You simply have to experience this yourself!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2011

Such a great experience! Soaring NV did a great job and wow did i have a great time!
This is something you have to do to really have an idea of how much fun and how alive you feel after it. I'm not much a of a Dare Devil so jumping out of plans really isn't my thing and flying in a plan with no engine made me pause with concern. However once the glider got off the ground i had this weird feeling of complete safety mixed with real exhilaration, and wonder. Its a must do i cant really put words together and the Soaring NV team are true pros!. Go do it today you wont regret it!

“Your visit to Lake Tahoe isn't complete til you've seen it during a glider ride!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2011

Located a short 20 minute drive from South Lake Tahoe you can find Soaring NV at the Minden Airport. This glider company offers the most exciting (or calm & serene) rides to make your Lake Tahoe experience complete. Their staff, instructors, and pilots are friendly, knowledgeable, experienced and will make you feel welcome and relaxed from your very first contact with them. I experienced first-hand what it's like to soar above ridge line and then do some acrobatics! If you think the snow-capped mountains and Lake are beautiful, wait til you see them upside down! The folks at Soaring NV are passionate about what they do and it shows. Whether you're interested in a quiet, easy, calm glide or want some excitement, Soaring NV is the place to go. I can't wait for my return visit. Go see for yourself. You'll be glad you did - I am!
