Great staff. Friendly and taught me a lot about how it works. I picked a great day for gliding with plenty of updrafts so we were able to stay around 3,000 feet for some time. On the way down, with my OK, the pilot dropped...More

In my previous review I rated this as terrible. This was because the pilot did not show up nor had informed us. We were back in South Florida in December so we called and tried again. We set a date and the pilot asked that...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...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...More
