We stopped and enjoyed an hour of watching planes taking off and soaring in the sky. We were not there when there is an air show but it is still very enjoyable visit.

Skylark North Glider School provides the thrill of flight for novices (Granny's sleigh ride)! I could not believe I was soaring above the beautiful valley and mountains (and completely safely thanks to masterful glider pilot). This is an experience not-to-be-missed. And Skylark North is a...More
