My brother Michael and I just went for our first glider plane experience. I have been going to do this for years, I wish I did it years earlier. If you are thinking of trying this experience don't hesitate do it NOW! As I said when we finished it is so much fun it should be illegal.

Not good for fly-ins: I've got permission to do an approach, but denied it when I got there. I'd rather spend my money in a friendlier and better organized place.

I am glider pilot EU license. I was on business trip to LA. I decided to look for any gliding club around to visit. I found them using google. I did not book a flight however they were managed to find glider and instructor to fly with me. Worth to visit to learn something about mountain and desert flying. They are very friendly and doing very professional aviation.

I was in town visiting my dad who is passionate about sail planes, so I wanted to see what it was all about. Julie was friendly and welcoming and gave a quick overview of what to expect from the experience. Dale the instructor was awesome to fly with and made sure I was comfortable and was having a good time. He gave a great tour from the sky, and we were able to see the Pacific Ocean, Edwards AFB, and the San Andreas Fault. Everyone was really nice and professional. It was a great experience!!

I took the introductory lesson. I have always been interested in flying and decided to go to southern California soaring academy. It was so great! My instructor Jim was INCREDIBLE! He explained everything and made me feel super secure. I will definitely be going back for more lessons.
