While vacationing in Arizona to attend my brother Bill's wedding, he suggested that we take a side trip to Turf Soaring School to do some gliding. ... Bill took the standard flight and soared over Lake Pleasant like a peaceful dove. I, on the other hand, was "dared" to try the aerobatic version of flight! ... I had been aloft in a glider a few times before, back home in Jersey, but never experienced soaring like this! ... The aircraft I "shoehorned" into was like sliding into a Formula 1 race car! .... As for the "gliding," peacefully over the beautiful terrain, I don't think so! Instead, I was tearing up the sky diving and looping like a hawk searching for his dinner.
I was enjoying every minute of my being aloft in this sleek, fast "bird." Before he executed each manuever, Carl, my pilot, would ask how I was doing. I kept telling him to "go for it!" My flying experience with Turf was a fun, exciting time. I definitely would recommend anyone to try soaring at least once or twice in their lifetime. If you're not as adventureous as I was with my aerobatic antics, you still simply must enjoy the experience of silent flight. My soaring adventure at Turf Soaring is one I'd love to return tp Arizona for and do over and over again.
