Fee: Yes
Recommended length of visit: 2-3 hours
Owner description: Hawaii’s oldest and largest soaring operation, Original Glider Rides has been operating tours at Dillingham Airfield since 1970. Soaring the skies over northwest Oahu, panoramic vistas unfold as your pilot guides you in this bubble-topped aircraft. You’ll be in awe as you fly on the wings of the wind with sights and sensations you’ve never experienced before. A 20-minute flight can attain altitudes of 3,000 ft. or more. Single passengers can kick it up a notch with specialized add-on flight services like aerobatic loop-d-loops and Eagle mini-lessons.

great thing to do off the beaten path.

Kinda scary but fun! The staff and employees are great and professional. Awesome views of the north shore and away from all chaos and hubbub of Honolulu.

Do it and have a blast!

Thanks to Mr. Bill and his staff the flight was everything we thought it would be. The ground crew and pilot were friendly and told us all sorts of interesting facts about the island and gliding. We were in the air for about 30 min catching the ever present winds on the windward mountain slope. Take-off and landing was as smooth as silk we even saw a turtle as we were on our final approach over the water. We never felt air sick no violent manoeuvres or anything, its like a car ride in the sky.
