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.

My sweetheart surprised me for my birthday by taking me to Crazy Creek Air Adventures, where she had arranged with Connie for our flight. When we arrived, we were treated like long-time friends. We felt very comfortable going up with them (Jim was our pilot) as they are very experienced at what they do. The wing-over over Calistoga, the inside... More

Glider Pilots Beware: I had an appointment with Jim (the owner) for a check ride around Crazy Creek. As I was doing my pre-flight Jim asked me, "What's that?" I said, "My chute. My wife made me promise I'd wear a chute on anything except pattern tows." Jim said, "Where's mine?" After I gave him a blank look, he said... More

I gave my daughter a glider ride for her 21 birthday. Now she wants to get her license to fly. Way a fantastic experience. Jim and Connie made us feel right at home at their office set in a beautiful meadow surrounded by mountains. The pilot took the time to educate us as the tow plane climbed to the appropriate...

My first - and certainly not last- glider ride with Crazy Creek Air. Connie, Jim and their son are expert pilots and put you at ease the moment you arrive. It's hard to describe the beauty and thrill to soar with the birds over Lake County. Put this on your must do list.

Looking to fly high over Clearlake and see the beautiful lake from the air this is the place to go family owned.

We went on a two person 20minute glider ride and was amazing. Full of beautiful views and the pilot was very informative about how the glider works and about the surrounding areas. The people who work there are extremely friendly and happy to answer any questions you might have. They also take some pictures for you at no extra cost,... More

Everything about this adventure was beyond our expectations! Connie and Jim are great and our pilot, Jeff, had an infectious passion for gliding. We are hooked! Don't miss a chance to do this, even a short flight is tremendous!

Wow, we are still in the clouds from our glider rides. Definitely ask for the wild ride. Loved that one of the pilots was a woman. Very save and experienced pilots. More exciting than a hot air balloon ride (though the one on Lake Tahoe is exceptional). More relaxing than a helicopter flight. Much better views and quieter than a... More

Loved the drive from Napa. Very friendly staff. A great experience to add to our wine tasting trip. My wife, who is quite sensitive to motion sickness, did not feel well for parts of the trip and for an hour or so afterward, but even she loved it! Highly recommended, unless you are prone to motion sickness.
